Do you remember this design I shared awhile back?
The time has come for me to make a quilt based on my sketches, and I’d like to invite you to quilt along with me, from start to finish. I’ve realized the best way for me to get something done is to set up a schedule and stick to a deadline.
I’ve also noticed a resurgence in the popularity of paper piecing and I know so many of you are eager to learn! I’m happy to share this fun technique with you. So let’s tackle this together shall we?
I’m still finalizing my design and filling in all the details. In fact, my version will look completely different than the those shown above, but I will include a few different layout options. I will launch the quilt along May 6th and it will run for 12 straight weeks. It will also include every step to complete the quilt including basting, machine quilting and binding!
Be sure to join my facebook group, Quilt With Christa to see all of the in-process sneak peaks before the quilt along launches on May 6th!
For those of you who would like to share on Instagram, I will be using the hashtag #decoqal for this one. You can also share pics from any of my previous quilt alongs with the tag #christaquiltsqal.
One more thing – which color scheme do you prefer – orange or purple? I think I’m going to go with a red, orange, and yellow colorscheme. Although my pictures above show only a few blocks, I’m going to make 48 of these block units below and set them into a very unique layout! As with any of my quilt alongs, you can sew at your own pace and make the quilt in your own size!
8″ finished block unit. Put 4 of them together for a larger 16″ block!
Who’s excited to quilt along with me?
