Peek pattern is here!
I am so excited to share my Peek quilt pattern with you. I believe that quilts should be beautiful to look at and fun to put together, so I hope you enjoy making these blocks as much as I do. The pattern is a downloadable PDF pattern. It includes instructions for blocks and layout for both traditional and modern composition.
I try to learn something new or practice a new skill with each project, and Peek is useful for practicing sewing a straight 1/4″ seam allowance. Seam allowances can be affected by many things, including presser foot guides, the fabric itself (fiber density and type), and thickness of thread, so Peek gives the double-check reassurance that when your 1/4″ allowance is correct and seams are pressed toward the skinny pieces, the seams will meet in the back of the piecing. Adjusting guides and needle position will help.
When I started quilting, I rebelled against precision, but I’ve come to find satisfaction in it. Making Peek, I realized that near the end of a seam, I “hang a left,” and it helped me to keep my lines straight.
And while I do consider it a skill-building block, those are the only skills you need to focus on. There are no seams to match and no points to preserve.
Enjoy! To celebrate the launch, take 20% off with the code PEEKLAUNCH through Wednesday, May 13.
If you make Peek blocks, let me know! Leave a comment, email, or tag your photos on Instagram with #peekblock and #peekquilt. You can also see all of my tagged posts there. There might be a blog hop or a quilt along during the summer too, so if you like the blocks, follow along.
Have a lovely weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.
