Sweet Tooth featuring Tiny Beasts by Tula Pink

Monday, July 18, 2022

Have you been looking for quilt patterns to put your Tiny Beasts fabric to work? 

We love the rich jewel tones of Tiny Beasts in the Sweet Tooth quilt! 


Sweet Tooth is a twin size quilt that features 12 unique quilt blocks, each made twice, and with creative fabric placement your quilt will appear to have 24 different quilt blocks. Bonus directions are included in the pattern to make a Queen size quilt top.


Sweet Tooth is made with the Hex N More and Super Sidekick rulers and no pesky Y seams!




The rulers come with full color instructions, including cutting and piecing diagrams, just like all Jaybird Quilts books & patterns. All of the pieces are rotary cut from strips.  


Here’s a video tutorial on how to use the Hex N More ruler:

Toes in the Sand: Block 4

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

Welcome back to the Toes in the Sand Block of the Month sew along! 

Did you want to receive this info in your email once a month? We'll email on the first Tuesday of each month with the names of the fabrics used in the blocks for that month, and if you're making the Queen size quilt, how many of each block to make for your quilt top. Sign up to receive the emails here.









The fabrics above correspond to the block fabrics at the top of page 12 in the pattern book. You'll need a fat eighth of each fabric for the Twin size quilt. 

If you're making a Queen size quilt, make 2 of the purple blocks and 3 of the lime green blocks for the queen quilt top.  To make the blocks for a Queen quilt top, you may want a half yard of the Lucy - Pineapple, then you'll need fat quarters of the rest of each fabric.



Julie will sew 1 block a month live in the Jaybird Quilts Sew Alongs Facebook group on the first Tuesday of each month in 2022. The live videos will be saved so group members can watch replays of it. The live videos will not be made public to view on other platforms, they will be exclusive to the Facebook group.


If you have an original version of the pattern book released in 2012 (top image), you can receive a PDF of the pattern updates that are a part of the 10th Anniversary edition (bottom image) here.

Thanks for sewing along with us this year!

Quilt for Baby & Beyond Sew Along

Monday, March 7, 2022


The upcoming sew along that I'm hosting is going to be for Quilts for Baby & Beyond! I’m excited to celebrate the one year anniversary since the release of the book & Baby William’s first birthday. My pregnancy with William was our motivation for finishing up the book and getting it out into the world when we did last year.


What I set out to do with this book is make it 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. So, I’m looking forward to sharing some good, foundational tips and techniques in this sew along.

This is a "choose your own adventure" sew along. I'll be making 6 projects throughout the sew along and you can make any of them that you like.

Here's a visual list of the projects that we'll be making and the order that we'll be making them in: 
Big or Small Triangles Pillow



Adult or Baby Cuddles Quilt


Rookie of the Year Quilt



Watch Me Grow Quilt

Color Wheel Quilt


Tummy Time All Star Quilt


All of the patterns in the book are made with the Super Sidekick ruler. All of the Kona Cotton Solid used in the quilts in the book are listed inside the book.

Sign up here to receive the sew along emails in your inbox each week. Emails will have the links to the video tutorial of the week, weekly giveaways and prizes, and discounts to quilt shops exclusively for sew along participants.
