Party Animal Quilting, Season 1 Quilt -- KCKS

Did you know that I have a Friday night YouTube quilting show

Well, I DO! 

It's called Party Animal Quilting and the videos drop at 9pm Friday evenings, NY Time Zone (because I'm terrible at time zones).  I'm on a live chat for the premier each Friday night and the videos are available to view as regular YouTube videos after that.

For the first season (quilt), I made a test of a larger quilt's border.  I needed to see how the applique would look in the border before I appliqued approximately eleventy-thousand small circles on the real quilt.  Once the test quilt was made, I decided to quilt it on camera and share it with you each Friday night.

The test quilt is named "KCMO" because the quilt was inspired by a shower curtain hanging in the Air B&B I stayed at while attending Quilt Market in Kansas City, Missouri in 2019.

I thought it would make an interesting quilt.  At the same Quilt Market, I saw the Primitive Gatherings Quilt "Twilight Garden" and loved their color scheme.  You totally need to buy their kit and make this amazing quilt.  So I began appliqueing scrap cream/tan circles on navy blue fabric and the quilt grew from there.

Once I finished filming the first quilt, step by step, I decided that my party guests (that would be you) needed a party favor.  I looked at all of the products used to make this quilt:

and pulled one out of a hat to put on sale for you, my party guests.  

Until January 28, 2021, all 2500 m spools of InvisiFil 100 weight polyester thread are 20% off!  No coupon or code is needed; discount will be applied at checkout.

I finished my quilt with a faux flanged binding.

This technique is covered in my "Quilting Essentials: How to Bind a Quilt" class. That class costs $25, but is bundled with two other classes -- Quilting Essentials: How to Prep and Baste Your Quilt for Machine Quilting and Quilting Essentials: First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting.  Those classes are worth $125 individually but are part of a "Finish Your Quilt" special for January 2021 and only cost $100 when purchased together.

I'm basting another quilt for Season Two of Party Animal Quilting.  Tune in on Friday nights!
