It’s release day!! I love this quilt y’all. It’s one of my favorites. It’s not an easy one, it’s one you sink your teeth into and have to pay attention to. BUT sometimes that’s exactly what you need and want! I love that’s it’s square, that it’s HUGE (80″), that it’s a sampler of sorts as those are always a favorite of mine. I’m really hoping you will love it as much as I do. And I cannot wait to see all the future Para Para quilts out in the world.

My Tester’s Quilt
I’ve shown you several of my testers quilts already, but above is four I haven’t had a chance to show you yet.
The quilt is made to use only 9 foreground fabrics, but really, you are the master of your quilt and are free to add in a dozen more or even leave some out. By exploring the hashtag #paraparaquilt, you can really see what it looks like when you stick to the pattern or mix things up.
Here’s the testers from left to right, top to bottom.
- Made by Shelley – @Elsiesgirl
- Made by Anna – @Atxsewcani
- Made by Trish – @Trishtriesewing

Diagonal Seam Tape
Diagonal Seam Tape is a perfect solution for sewing straight diagonal seams without having to mark any lines!
On Monday, I’ll be showing you the scrappy background bundle I’ve created for the quilt, so stay tuned.
Hugs and have a lovely weekend!
