I hope you have had a good day sewing on and off. My sewalong quilt is finished. I am making the binding strip to get it ready for when the quilt is quilted.

Here is Joyce’s progress picture. I am loving her soft palette, and that she made hers into a rectangular quilt!

With that, I shall say goodnight! I will check in with you early tomorrow afternoon! Thank you for sewing along.

Dinner is done, and I am back in the sewing room!

When direction matters in pieced rows, I place a pin to show which way is up!

This #crockpotweekendSAL is sponsored by P&B Fabrics. The fabrics are from their Au Naturel fabric line. I love the pretty small neutral prints. The dandelion prints stole my heart. So far it would look like the charm packs or the kits are sold out, but I did find that Bear Creek Quilting has FQ bundles and yardages HERE.

Besides, this sewalong project, I also designed 2 other quilts. They patterns are also free HERE for you to download and use for personal uses.

My personal chef came through for me! Dinner was enjoyed by all. I opted out of the option of having the meat wrapped in tortillas. So this was my plate.

You may choose to organize/sort your squares by pairs – you would need a total od 36 squares or (18) pairs of 2 squares.

The convention in making a 4″ finished HST unit is that you would cut your starting squares at 4 7/8″. The nice thing about using charm squares to make HST units is that you get that extra 1/8″ because charm squares are 5″. I like to make my HST units LARGER and then trim to size. So, my trick of also ensuring I have more than enough to trim off is that I scooch my squares in such a way that that I am not sewing at exactly 1/4″ from each side of the drawn line. By doing that, I don’t have an exact 1/4″ seam allowance on the HST units, but that’s okay…. because that way, when I cut along the drawn line, and open up the units, I have even more wriggle room for squaring up and trimming. I’d much rather has a HST unit that is a perfect square!

My personal chef (crockpot) assured me he has everything under control, and everything will turn out as it should!

Hello, my Friends! This evening kicks of our #crockpotweekend SAL! This post will be the ONE STOP POST for our sewalong. I will start posting as soon as dinner is over, and I am ready to work on my quilt, hopefully around 7pm EST. I will add a time-stamp with my postings throughout this weekend as well.


This is a relaxed and laid back event!

#1. You are late, you are early — just start whenever it’s convenient for you. You have the pattern.

#2. You start and stop whenever you feel like it throughout the weekend because… LIFE!

#3. Hopefully, by the end of Sunday evening, you will have a quilt top ready to quilt for a gift, or future gift.

See you this evening!

  1. You are sew right – Life! I’ve had it on my calendar since you first mentioned it but other people have made plans on these dates that include me. I am putting dinner in the crockpot but the sewing part will just happen when it does, in the usual manner. I’m fortunate to have a lot of time designated for sewing, anyway.

    • Karen, I was just sharing with someone that this quilt can probably be done from start to finish in 5 hours or less. Just sew when you can! Or you can always catch up next week, hahaha! LIFE really does happen! Have a great weekend.

      • Definitely less than five hours! This pattern goes together so quickly. I finished my first one this evening and will be making more to stockpile gifts to have on hand.

  2. I’m gettin’ ready. Tidying up my sewing space from yesterday’s stitching. Gonna do a bit of prepping and then I’m good to go!! 😊🪡🧵✂️

  3. Used my crock pot yesterday to cook smoked ham hocks and pinto beans. My DH made cornbread and fried some taters. I’m still finishing another project, so I’m not starting a new one this weekend. But I’m following along with your sew along because I enjoy seeing everything you create! Happy stitching!

  4. I ordered my fabric from Bear Creek Quilting Company because none of the quilt shops in my area carried Au Naturel. Bear Creek was prompt with my order and generous in their cuts. Please keep shopping local quilt retailers! We need these shops in our communities.
