Today we are going to show you how to make the Summer Vibes Geometric Quilt. Just by the photo you can see the joy that the chosen colors convey. The combination of yellow, pink and blue was wonderful. Of course, colors and combinations are very personal. This is just a suggestion that we are bringing. The bedspread can also be made with patterned fabrics and you can use some scraps you already have.
The pattern is a simple template, for beginners, but charming all the same. You will only need to cut out squares and half-square triangles. It’s a simple pattern and easy to assemble. If you’ve never made any quilts, this could definitely be your first. The pattern is so beautiful that no one will tell you that you are a beginner.
Another great option is to match the decor of the environment. If it’s for the bedroom, use colors that match the bedding set. If you prefer, you can leave it on the armchair and it can be the highlight of the room. Always remember to wash the fabrics before making the quilt, to ensure that one fabric does not stain the other.

Here are some precious tips from the designer of this pattern:
Piecing squares together: When piecing together your squares, is recommend keeping a copy of the pattern layout at your sewing machine so you don’t make any mistakes. It helps to number the rows on the template and pinning a scrap piece of paper with the row number, to each row of squares/blocks.
Sewing rows together: When sewing the blocks together in a row, is recommend sewing 2 blocks together at a time, rather than one block after another, after another. If you sew the rows together one after another, the straightness of your piecing can get off.
