** 1 1/4 yd. is enough to back the baby quilt, but only leaves a small amount of overage on the sides.
Grow is the first design in a series of four quilts that represent the four seasons in a year, as well as seasons in our lives. Each pattern focuses on a sewing skill along with a general life meditation. Since quilting can naturally be meditative and restorative, these meditations will be an added thing to consider as you move through the quilt-making process.
The primary skill involved in making the Grow quilt is strip piecing and pressing. Before turning on your iron or sewing machine, pause for a minute to close your eyes and take some deep breaths, listening to your body’s rhythm. While you sew your strips and gently press your seams, consider how you have personally grown – be it mentally, emotionally, or simply as a quilter.
