Thank you for participating in our first Sew Along! We're happy to have you onboard and look forward to sewing this quilt with you! We encourage you to join our Facebook group, to share your journey in making these blocks. The Facebook group is by permission only, so you will have to ask to join.
We would like to extend a very special thank you to Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic for allowing us to use her pattern.
Twelve blocks make up this quilt using a variety of techniques. Each block finishes at 12 1/2" x 12 1/2". We'll work on the blocks in the order the pattern presents them. Blocks 5, 8, 10 and 11 are foundation pieced or paper pieced. If you do not have paper piecing supplies when we arrive at these blocks let me know and I can drop some in the mail to you, or arrange a pick up if you live close by.
We will decide as a group (by popular vote) how often you prefer we release a block i.e. weekly, every other week, monthly etc.
We hope that you'll stay on top of your block making, but it is not mandatory. For those of you who complete your block within the designated time, I will enter you into a random prize drawing, selecting a winner prior to the next block pattern being released. A photo of your block will need to be posted on our Facebook page, or emailed to me directly to be entered into the prize drawing.
Materials: The pattern lends itself to variation. It can be scrappy, planned and anything in between. Each block in the original patter are created with a scrappy background using a variety of white and gray fabrics. We have curated a background bundle and a solid bundle if you'd like to use them to get you started. The bundles do not include the fabric to make the large background strips. Finally, are you ready to get started?
