2022 Summer Quilt Along--Choose Your Own Adventure Quilt
Spend the summer making a choose your own adventure sampler quilt! Our popular Summer Sampler [usually hosted by me (Katie Blakesley), Faith Jones and Lee Heinrich] is on hold this summer.
If you have participated in the past, this quilt along will be run very similarly. Enjoy easy-to-follow instructions and helpful hints every step of the way, with tips from former Summer Sampler designers throughout the quilt along!
For $34.99 total (a one-time charge), you'll receive:
• 9 fully-tested quilt block patterns, with tips and tricks for success--the quilt will include 13 pieced quilt blocks (some will be duplicated). Follow one of the the 2 suggested layouts or create your own unique layout
• PDF Welcome Guide, with fabric requirements and kit information, an FAQ, coloring pages for planning, and more, upon purchase.
• Complete finishing instructions to make a 60" x 60" sampler quilt [or choose to add the top and bottom borders for a bigger 60'' x 84'' quilt]
• A Beginner's Guide to FPP
Quilt-along runs: June 6-September 12, 2021.
Subscribers will receive a new block pattern via email each Monday during the quilt-along, with finishing instructions sent on August 29. (If you purchase after the quilt-along has begun, you will receive a link to download all previously released blocks immediately upon purchase.)
Block sizes: 12-1/2" x 12-1/2" (12" x 12" finished)
Finished quilt size: Approximately 60" x 60" or 60'' x 84''
Skill level: Confident Beginner. We assume you have basic quilting knowledge such as general fabric cutting and pressing knowledge, the ability to sew a consistent 1/4" seam, and familiarity with the terminology used in quilt patterns.
Techniques used: Most of the blocks will be foundation paper pieced this year, with some options for traditional piecing techniques. If you have never paper-pieced before, our "Beginner's Guide to Paper-Piecing" is included with purchase. There is no appliqué or curved piecing in this sampler pattern.
