Moroccan Tiles Sew Along – Week 5

Guys!! We’re starting Week 5 of the Moroccan Tiles sew along! I’m putting up the week 5 post as scheduled, but week 5 is going to be 2 weeks long. So you’ve got until 11:59PM CST July 12 to post your remaining 3 blocks for the throw size. If you decided to go the route of baby quilt and you’ve already completed all your blocks, just post something Moroccan Tiles related. It can be your binding/backing fabric, another shot of your blocks, you sewing, anything having to do with the sew along! You’ll have an extra week this week because the end of week 5 initially fell on 4th of July weekend. We don’t have plans to travel, but a lot of people do. I don’t want to hassle you with a deadline when you’re trying to spend some quality time with the family!

How to Fussy Cut Fabric

Fussy cutting. What does that even mean? My mother literally asked me that question after I posted a picture of one of my Moroccan Tiles quilt blocks on Instagram the other day. My sweet mother doesn’t sew (except for general mending). This was the picture I posted:

Fabrics are from Leslie Tucker Jenison’s Urban Garden and Tula Pink’s All Stars. Quilt pattern is Moroccan Tiles by me.

So- back to the question. What is fussy cutting? Well, “fussy” generally means pain in the rear, right? And cutting…well–that’s pretty self explanatory. So there you go mom! Fussy cutting = pain in the rear cutting!

Moroccan Tiles Summer Sew Along

Are you gearing up for some fun summer sewing? If you’re like me, I like to plan my projects a few weeks in advance so I have time to pick the perfect fabrics. Then there’s no mad dash to gather fabrics and decide on the layout. If you follow along on Instagram, I’ve been posting a lot about the Moroccan Tiles Quilt pattern. Pairing solid fabrics and stripes with this one is so much fun! We really need a new quilt for our bed, so I had planned out the king sized version to make this summer. I thought since I’d already be making one, why not do a fun Moroccan Tiles Summer Sew Along and make one with friends!?

Join in the fun, and if you’re interested, you can RSVP for the sew along here. Emails will go out at the start of each week to remind you of what’s going on that week in the sew along and what the prize is for completing that week’s task. There is a great post about the Moroccan Tiles Quilt that gives video links for tips and tricks, and has some various colorways for inspiration. You can check that out here!
