The Hold Tight Quilt Sew Along

Sharon Holland Hold Tight


Let’s kick off the Hold Tight Petit Sew Along!

The Hold Tight quilt is a PDF pattern designed by Sharon Holland, this month’s Ruby Ambassador, and features a bouquet of balloons. We will be making a mini, 6 balloon version of the original quilt. Color value plays heavily in this design heavily, and it;s the perfect design to show how understanding color value and using the Ruby Ruler™ or Ruby Minder™ as a value lens will help you create a successful layout. Because you know what makes the balloons look like some are behind others? Color value! Get that part right and your quilt is successful!
