Hi my loves! Looking for a new pattern to keep you company on the weekend? Because we have a beautiful model that will delight you too. This time we brought another technique that we have already seen here, the quilts. There are so many amazing models that it was hard to choose just one to bring here. Bravo Indigo Quilt has an amazing pattern. With few colors, but a lot of contrast, it is incredible in the decoration of different environments.
Even more so when we mix it with other elements, such as pillows. Still don’t have a lot of practice in quilting? Don’t worry. We separate some tips that, if we knew too, we would have avoided some mistakes. The first is that you don’t have to go out and buy all the quilting materials. I know it makes you want to invest everything you have and don’t have, but you can start with a lot less and gradually buy new materials.
Chosen fabrics, I recommend you wash the fabrics before anything. There are two mistakes that we can avoid doing this. Fabrics can shrink after drying and change the pattern you had made. The same thing goes for excess paint that fabrics can release. If you have any lighter fabric attached, it could stain your quilt. Avoid all this by washing them first. Check the measurements twice before cutting the fabric.

When you’re using your rotary cutter, be sure to take it slow. Also, if you are using a ruler, keep your blade against the ruler’s edge and be sure not to stray. Going slow will help you to keep your cuts straight and neat. The standard when quilting is to use a ¼” seam allowance on all your pieced blocks. If you are a beginner, it may be helpful to use a larger seam allowance such as ½”.
When shopping for fabric, purchase slightly more than a specific pattern calls for. You can get ⅓ to ½ yard more of each fabric. That may seem like a lot of extra fabric, but with the shrinkage factor, you’ll need plenty of excess just in case you make a whoopsy with your cutting. Now that we know the basics, let’s quilt? A brave indigo quilt pattern is available at Nightingale Quilts. We really want to know what you think, let us know in the comments.
