Little Ruby Quilt Along - Quilt Assembly

It's Part Three of the Little Ruby Quilt Along, I am so excited because today we get to see all of the quilt tops come together!!!   That's right, Part 3 is Quilt Assembly!!!!    You can find all of the details about the Little Ruby Quilt Along right here at the Fat Quarter Shop :)

You might recall that Part 2 left us with all of these beautiful star blocks just waiting to be pieced into rows ;)  I just love some good ol chain stitching.  Especially when I have a great book to go along with it as well, double bonus!!

So I just started stitching away, sewing all of my pieces into rows.  It was super helpful to have all of the rows laid out and stacked on top of one another, that way I could chain stitch a whole set at a time ;)  And before you knew it, the rows were all done ;)

And I just love this part ;)  I always get so excited to lay out the entire quilt on my studio floor  :)  You know, when you can finally see how it is all going to come together!!  And then you get to step back and squeal in delight because it is just so darn cute :)

And then, from there, of course, you can't wait because all that is left is sewing the rows together :)  So yes, I might have ignored some laundry and ordered some pizza so that I could see these two adorable quilt tops all finished.  Can you blame me :)

I mean, just a few more stitches, some pressing, and trimming the sides, and Wha-La!!   How cute is this adorable Little Ruby Quilt Top!!!  I just love it :) And how fun that is also has a sister quilt that was made right along with it, again, double bonus!!

I think I am now calling them Christmas Swirls, because I just love the movement in them, and like I said originally, they reminded me of the peppermint swirl candies ;)  And now I can't wait to just quilt them both up and have two new Christmas quilts for the holidays ;)

And just like previous weeks,  Kimberly has made a fun video tutorial for you that will walk you through the  quilt assembly!!!  

And be sure to pop on over to Fat Quarter Shop for all of the Litle Ruby Quilt Along Part 3 details ;)   And while you are popping around, check out all of the Little Ruby Bloggers too!!!   I am so excited to see everyone's Little Ruby Quilt Tops come together!!!

  1. The link to Part 3 of the Pattern is broken; clicking on it takes me to the video, not the pattern.

  2. Could you tell me exactly how you chain pieced, please? When you stacked everything up into rows did you sew all the same seam in each stack or a different way? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Linda,

      To chain piece the rows, yes, I sewed the first two pieces in each row in a chain. Then clipped my threads stacked my stitched pieces back up again by the rest of the laid out row and chain pieced the third piece in each row onto the now stitched together first and second piece. I continued in that fashion until all of the rows were sewn together :)
