Quilt Along Announcement – See the Winning Quilt Design!

Thanks so much to all of you who voted for which quilt along you wanted to make from my new book, Piece and Quilt with Precuts. And without further ado, the design with this most votes is:

Squiggles Starting in January!!

Squiggles recolored in Modern Marks

EQ7 design of Squiggles, recolored in my Modern Marks Fabric

Gridwork was the second most popular, followed by Dot ‘n Dash and then Arrows. I really wish I had time to make them all!!

Coming up soon, I’ll announce the blog hop schedule (starting in January) but here’s what you can expect. It will run for several weeks, giving you plenty of time to complete your quilt while I’m cheering you on. I’ll be remaking the quilt, too, so I’ll include some extra hints and tips along the way.

I’ll do a blog post for every step of the quilt-making process, including basting, machine quilting and binding. So even though you need to purchase the book to quilt along with me, you’ll get even more valuable bonus content, just by following along!

Kits coming soon!

And now for the most exciting news (at least for me anyway), is that for the first time in my history of quilt alongs, I’m going to offer kits, made from my Modern Marks fabric! The beautiful thing about a kit is that although the fabric is the same in each kit, no two quilts will be alike because of your choice of color placement for the blocks. I love designs that work that way.

The fabric won’t arrive in stores until November, but once I get an idea of the pricing and delivery dates, I’ll offer Squiggles kits for pre-order.  Watch the blog for that announcement soon!

Modern Marks Kit Options from Piece and Quilt with Precuts

Other kit possibilities – Gridwork, Dot’n’Dash, Arrows (Navy or Aqua)

That brings me to my next idea. Please let me know if you are interested in kits for any of the other 3 quilts: Gridwork, Dot’n’Dash and Arrows (Navy or Aqua). There’s no obligation of course, but if I can get a rough idea of the interest, I may be able to offer kits for those, too. Just leave me a comment letting me know which kit you might be interested in, or you can always shoot me a private email at christa@christaquilts.com.

And just to reiterate, you can still quilt along with any fabrics you want to use! The kits are just a convenience for those who are interested. I’ll be selling them through my store at shop.christaquilts.com and I’ll be able to ship them internationally, too. I’ll make another announcement once they are available for preorder.

Summary Thoughts

So just to recap, I’ll be posting the Squiggles quilt along schedule later this month and will offer kits for 4 different quilts if there’s interest. And remember – there’s nothing that says you can’t make one of the others while we are making Squiggles. I love seeing your progress on any quilt you make!

    Kits ! Brilliant idea. Of the choices you gave for kits my vote would be all of them of course! But calming myself down and planting my feet back on earth, I know that I don’t have the budget to follow that dream. So realistically I would love to see a kit for Grid work and Arrows (Aqua. )
    (Note: I am already planning a Valentine version of Arrows using Red White and Pink. Have not decided if it will be Red and White Arrows on Pink or Red and Pink Arrows on White.)

    Wow – I would like a kit of your fabric for Squiggles and also for Gridwork. Or – – I could use my stash. Looking forward to the gal.

    I received my beautiful package of Kona layer cakes and have thought of what pattern I will use it for. The colors are fabulous, exactly what I love. I want to thank you for having this contest and I’m still pinching myself because I won something. For ten years I have entered contests and this is the first time I’ve won. Yahoo!!

    Thanks for your inspiration. I cannot wait to start … I just cannot decide on buying a kit or using my own fabric. Your squiggles quilt done in your new fabrics is wonderful!

  5. Rhonda Smith says:

    Yay!! My favorite! (Although all of them were great!) I’m going to have to start gathering some great scrappy pieces to use in it when the time comes.
