Sew Solid Series featuring the Nail Polish Quilt


Hi everyone! Welcome to our first edition of our Sew Solid video series.
In this series of projects, we're turning some of our favorite things into mini quilts. Since there are so many fabulous solid fabrics in hundreds of colors and hues, these projects are a really fun way to try them all! We're getting super girly with our Nail Polish Quilt Tutorial. We modeled our block after Kimberly's favorite nail polish shade, Cajun Shrimp by OPI.


To start, download our free pattern and watch our video, where Kimberly will show you how to make your own Nail Polish Quilt. We've also created a quilt kit to get you started. 


We've asked our blogger friends to share their Nail Polish Quilt creations. Check out their blogs to see their quilts.
