I’m so excited that some of you are wanting to quilt with me! If you are new to quilting, not sure where to start, or just love sharing in the experience – you are in the right spot! We will start with the most basic of blocks and proceed to a few more challenging, feel free to work at your own pace too – no pressure :)
My desire is to introduce all the basic, necessary skills for a quilter. As you see there are 16 blocks, each is 12″ with the sashing (white space between blocks) the quilt finishes at 58 inches square.
I have the fabrics pictured in the quilt, 1/2 yard of 8 fabrics. More than enough :) if you are pulling scraps the largest square we cut will be 7 3/4″, just find lots of scraps that work well together. 2 yards of white, or neutral of your choice. (I got my white – here!) Eventually when we make a back, you will need 4 yards, and 1/2 a yard for binding – I think mine will be scrappy with the extra bits.
|8 – 1/2 yard cuts + 2 yards of white|
Other needed items ::
Sewing machine :)
Rotary cutter & mat
Marking pen or pencil
I have made a button for those participating!
Add it where you like and spread the word :) I will compile a list of participants from yesterday’s post and this one, and make a list next week so we can cheer each other along!
Are you ready!? There’s time to shop for fabric, if needed, I plan to post the first two blocks mid-week next week.
