Welcome to week ten of the Ombre Gems quilt along!
Welcome to the very last week of the quilt along! This week we are sewing quilt tops together 🙂 There are already so many beautiful quilt tops popping up on Instagram. I’m so proud of you guys for sticking this one out and finishing up those quilt tops!
If you are still working on blocks, keep going! I’m sure you will have plenty of company in the hashtag. If you are running out of steam for this quilt, you can always call it good with the smaller version using way less blocks.
Don’t forget about the quilting special with Knot and Thread! See those details below.

- Sew together quilt tops!
There isn’t really a trick to sewing together these blocks other than using a generous amount of pins. I literally pin at every point. Take time to match up the points and pin for the best results.
Don’t worry if you lose a few points here an there! I lose plenty of points but in the end the quilt will be beautiful and you won’t even notice those blunt points.
I want to remind you that Kaitlyn of Knot and Thread Design is offering 20% off of the quilting on all Ombre Gems quilt tops 🙂 I use Kaitlyn for all of my quilting and I highly recommend her.
