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!

Week 1 (this week!), is all about Color & Value Selection

Sharon will post tips and instructions over on her site and Instagram feed. I will be live in the Wise Craft Quilts Facebook group this Wednesday, 8/7, at 3:30pm PDT doing the assignment for that week (join the group here, the only requirement to enter is to answer the 3 questions).

The Hold Tight Quilt Pattern here, you will need that to make the quilt. We will be demonstrating the Ruby Minder™, which is not a required tool but very useful for this quilt.

AAANNNNNDDDD! We have some fun giveaways planned! Sharon will be announcing them on her Instagram feed starting tomorrow (Tuesday), so be sure to follow her feed and mine for a chance to win!
