Nightshade Set Sail

I've got a new quilt to share with you today, my Set Sail quilt in Tula Pink's Nightshade (Deja Vu) fabric! I fussy cut the Nightshade faces with my Super Sidekick ruler. The pattern and the ruler are available now at quilt shops, the fabric will be available July 2023.

When the fabric is available in shops July 2023, I’ll post a video tutorial on how to fussy cut the faces with the Super Sidekick ruler. Sign up here to get an email notification as soon as the tutorial is available.


The pattern includes 4 quilt sizes: baby, lap, twin & queen. This is a twin sized Set Sail quilt.


The quilt is made using the Super Sidekick ruler. Templates are included in the pattern. Of all of the Jaybird Quilts rulers, Super Sidekick is the only one to use here.


I've made the quilt a few times in Tula Pink fabrics. Clockwise from the top left: Nightshade (Deja Vu), Slow & Steady, Curiouser & Curiouser (tap/click the link to get the Fussy Cutting Guide), True Colors.


The quilt features fussy cut faces from Nightshade (Deja Vu) and all of the Nightshade fabrics, plus Fairy Dust in Blush and some Tiny Dots in Candy for the sashing.


Once the fabric is available in shops this summer, I’ll post a video tutorial on how to fussy cut the faces with the Super Sidekick ruler. You’ll be able to find that on the Jaybird Quilts YouTube Channel. Sign up here to get an email notification as soon as the tutorial is available.

***ATTENTION SHOPS***:

If you’re new to Jaybird Quilts, cutting with the Super Sidekick ruler, or sewing shapes with 60-degree angles, I’ve got some tutorials to help you out. This will be great practice and skill building that you can work on until the Nightshade (Deja Vu) fabric is available in shops and to get you ready to make the Set Sail quilt.

My book, Quilts for Baby & Beyond, is a solid primer for quilters who are new to working with my rulers or patterns. It’s a good refresher for practiced and long-time quilters, too.

All of the patterns in the book are made with the Super Sidekick ruler.


This is Cuddles. It will give you great practice cutting and sewing with the diamond shape and it can be made doll, baby, and adult sizes.


This is Tummy Time All Star. It's a great play mat for baby, and a nice small lap quilt measuring 50" x 58".


We'll be sure to offer more Super Sidekick cutting support for making your Set Sail blocks when the fabric is available July 2023. Sign up here to get the info as soon as it's available!
