This Week’s Task
Our task this week is to sew all our blocks together and walk away with a finished quilt top.
Tools from video
- Binding clips can be found here.
- I use Best Press starch. Find it here. (affiliate link)
- My wool pressing mat is from Precision Quilting Tools. Find it here. (affiliate link)
- My iron is a Reliant Maven. You can find it here. (affiliate link)
- All of my cutting tools (snips, scissors, rotary cutter) are from Havel’s Sewing. Use my ambassador coupon SOUTHERNCHARM7 and receive $7 off any purchase of $25 at Havel’s Sewing.

- I’m sewing on a Juki 2000qi. Find it here on Amazon or here at Sewing Machines Plus. (affiliate link)
- My sewing cabinet is an Aussie 2 from Arrow Sewing. Find it here. (affiliate link)
- Do keep your blocks in order! I got one of my rows sewn on in the wrong direction and it made my blocks NOT alternate. UGH! Not a terrible biggie, but I was being mindful and it still happened to me. Find a way to keep things straight!
- Take a gazillion pictures of your finished quilt top. You worked hard and you should feel the sense of accomplishment! Be proud of yourself.
- Don’t worry about some of the inconsistencies that you might find! Nobody notices any of it but you. WOULD YOU have noticed that I had a row sewn on backwards if I hadn’t of mentioned it? When I make mistakes, I AM MENTIONING it not to point out all of my mistakes and groan (although venting does sometimes help), but so you know that even someone who has been quilting for 12 years STILL has those pesky little flaws and you shouldn’t be hard on yourself.

I just want to send out a big thank you to all of our sponsors:
I’d love it if you could give them a shoutout on social media or just say thank you for sponsoring the Sassy Granny quilt along. When you reach out to them it really helps me get sponsors and prizes for my quilt alongs. They are all small business with real and lovely people behind them, and they have been SO GENEROUS to us!
Omigosh, I can’t wait to quilt this and snuggle under it. Just looking at this color palette makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!
Thank you for joining in and making Sassy Granny with me! I love and appreciate you all so much and look forward to doing this again with you in August!
