As we sat in our booth in Houston at Quilt Market and Festival in front of our Lavish quilt, we heard a constant and frustrating refrain of people loving the quilt but saying, “I could never make that!” It’s one of those quilts that’s not hard to make at all but for whatever reason has psyched out lots of people who have the skills to make it.
Wanting to support quilters who want to learn something new, we started Modern Quilt Studio’s Lavish Quilt Along on Facebook for those who want to be able to share their progress on making the Lavish quilt or a version of it. In addition, we have decided to launch an all-out campaign next year to get quilters comfortable and familiar with our simple and fail-proof method of curved piecing. So although we’ve shared the other videos for the quilt along just in the Facebook group, we’ve added another tutorial to our YouTube channel with the hope that others not in the group will realize that they too can be successful with curves.
