Coming Soon :: Think Big Quilt Along

Last week I shared all of the quilts in Think Big, and it got my creative juices flowing! Since all the blocks in the book are 18″ I decided to work out a sampler quilt, with at least a few of the blocks included in the book. Here’s what I came up with :  Think Big Quilt Along by Amy Ellis


With this one quilt we get to make three favorite blocks, and grouped together they make a dynamic (and large 90″x90″) quilt top! Along with half-square triangles and chain piecing, we are going to sew a few curves too, but don’t let them keep you from joining. I’m sharing all my tips as we sew through the blocks, to make sure you have success!

I hope you will join me! Each Monday for the next seven weeks I plan to post the following ::

August 3rd – book & fabric requirements

August 10th – Connections blocks (cut & sew)

August 17th – Tilt-a-Whirl blocks (cut & sew)

August 24th – Equalizer blocks (cut & sew)

September 7th – Layout and Sew the quilt top

September 14th – Quilt the layers

September 21 – Bind it up!

Of course if life is too busy for you to join us right now, you can always come back and sew at your own pace later. There’s no time limit on all the tips and info!
Think Big by Amy Ellis -

Everyone will need their own copy of the book. If you don’t have one already, Think Big is available in my shop, with Martingale or Amazon.

I’ve also set up a Facebook group so we can share our projects as we sew, and get to know each other better too.

Happy Quilting – Amy

    What happened to quilt cast. The last one I can find is in April 2015. I enjoyed it so much.
