The Royal Baby Sew-A-Long Info!!


Sew, here we are waiting for that Royal bundle of joy that is due in July, and what better way to celebrate than make a Royal quilt for that special baby in your life! Some of you already know Gus our resident quilt expert, and we hope you will jump in on this fun SAL (sew a long) and get to know him better! When we asked him if he would like to do a JBW exclusive design for us he didn't hesitate for one second...YES was his answer!!


You can grab your quilt kit here which includes all of the fabric you need (minus the batting) to complete the quilt; including the backing and binding yardage!!  We do encourage more advanced quilters to join us, as there are a lot of ways to add your own style to this unique piece...so this project has a little something for everyone!


Of course how can things ever go wrong when using Kaffe Fasset's Shot Cottons and Woven fabrics??

We are thrilled with the results and know you will enjoy following along beginning Wednesday, July 3rd right here on the Jimmy Beans Wool Blog...we will be revealing step by step detailed instructions for you to work with each week for 6 weeks. The final week will be instructions for the finishing work on this beautiful creation!! Gus will be helping me as I help you (thank goodness :) to work through each step and hopefully learn new techniques as you go! The quilt is an adventurous beginner piece, and we know that you can do it!!

I, for one, am all a twitter and can't wait to get going!! I look forward to getting to know all of you here on the blog, where you will be able to post comments and questions as we move forward. Of course the Royal baby is due sometime in the middle of July, so we will be chatting about the Royals here as well! IF you don't quilt, but DO knit or crochet, we have you covered! Our very own Kristen and Heather will be hosting a KAL/CAL with their very own version of the Royal Baby blanket here on the blog and on Ravelry as well, so come on let's get stitching!!

As always, happy knitting, crocheting and sewing/quilting!!
