Raceway // New Quilt Pattern

Today I would like to share my newest quilt pattern coming out for Aria Lane. Meet Raceway, designed and pieced by yours truly and machine quilted by professional longarm quilter Sarah Wilson from Crinkle Love. I made the Raceway quilt in a 60.5" x 60.5" throw size with Kona Cotton Solids in Cerise, Charcoal, Nautical, Breakers, Chartreuse, Coral, Red, Teal Blue, Crocus, and Brt. Peri.

The Technique

Do you like sewing curves? Most quilters I meet along my travels usually say they're afraid to try curves piecing, but I want to challenge you to give them a try! Over the years I have posted many tutorials on Pile O' Fabric for different ways to piece curves and now I'd like to share an even easier curves piecing technique called Piec-lique (piece-li-kay). Piec-lique is a technique that was engineered by award winning quilter Sharon Schamber once you learn this technique it will open doors making piecing curves so much easier for you! The Raceway quilt pattern is not your typical quilt pattern, whether you purchase the printed or pdf version you will be given access to a private video tutorial where I will teach you how to piece together the Raceway quilt using Piec-lique. Are you curious about Piec-lique yet? Well checkout the pattern preview video below for more details!  

Pre-order Pattern

The Raceway quilt pattern will be coming out in PDF and Print in October 2014. I am taking pre-orders now so that I have an idea of how many printed patterns to order. Pre-order Pattern

    I am so glad you put the video on how to piece curves as it gives a new meaning on how easy it would be to do your newest pattern which I really l ike. The first time I saw it I said oh no curves but now that I saw the video I’ve totally changed my mind. I just may be ordering the pattern now.

    The really awesome part is that you can do this with straight seams too and convert basically any foundation paper pieced pattern. This is called paperless paper piecing.

    O-M-G. That video just blew my mind!! I’ve never seen glue basting done like that! That is so cool! Piec-lique… I have to try that! (Sorry for all the exclamation points, but really, this is a game-changer.)

    I am so blown away by that technique, I can’t wait to try it! Any chance you can give us the fabric requirements so we can have our solids ready when the pattern publishes?
    I am truly excited about this one! Thanks, Alyssa!
