The Glam Clam Quilt

Posted on January 28, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Give-Aways, Quilts

Last fall, after Quilt Market was over, I never got done showing you all the quilts I made for the Stitch ‘n’ Sparkle booth. I have one more left to show you, and a give-away to go along with it, so read on!

This quilt is called Glam Clam, and it’s from a pattern and template by Latifah Saafir Studios.

For my version, I used the 8″ version of the Clammy Template, and the Tone and Tone fabric line by Stitch ‘n’ Sparkle. I think the whole quilt just glows!

In the interest of time, I quilted it very simply, but if I make another one, I think I might try a different size of the template, and do some fancier quilting. And I’d love to make it out of scraps — all kinds of scraps — maybe even fussy cutting some scraps — wouldn’t that be cute?

It was fun to make, even though it’s all curved piecing. Latifah’s instructions are super excellent, and tell you just what to do. The template has markings all over it in all the right places to assure you that you are lining everything up correctly. It’s all great — makes it way easier than it looks! And it comes in four different sizes, so you can make your quilt any size you want, choosing whatever size Clammy you want.

Please do check out Latifah’s web site. She has other patterns, but she also has lots of examples of her quilts (including a couple more examples of Clammy quilts) for you to look at and get inspired.

You can purchase the Glam Clam quilt pattern, or other patterns that use the Clammy template, and the Clammy templates themselves (in all the sizes) HERE.

And I’m giving away the leftover fabric from my quilt, and an 8″ Clammy template to one lucky winner! So you could have a template of your own, and dig into your scraps and get started right away! (But you’ll need a pattern.) And if you want more of the fabric that’s included in the prize, you can find it HERE.

All you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on this post. I’ll draw for a winner on Friday, February 1st.

UPDATE: The winner of the fabric and ruler is Robin Hoover! Congratulations, Robin, and thanks everyone for playing along!

    I came to Prairie Moon for the Studio Organizing Challenge, then flagged the Baked and Twice-Baked Potatoes recipes to make for my mom the next time I visit her, and, now, find myself craving clams. More than happy to buy a pattern at Latifah Saafir Studios if your scraps come to my house to play!

    I maight not make clamshells with that beautiful fabric, but it sure would jazz up a donation quilt to be given to a child in the hospital or to one in foster care.
