Are you ready? The Quilt Along for Dot ‘n’ Dash kicks off next week on Friday, August 17th!
We had fun photographing the finished quilt at the beach.
Dot ‘n’ Dash Finished Size 60″ x 72″
On that date, I’ll share the complete quilt-along schedule and there will be plenty of time to gather your materials, share the fabrics you’ll be working with and get to know everyone else who’s participating.
I’m offering two versions of the Dot ‘n Dash Quilt Kit – with either a light or dark grey background. Both will look fantastic, but I only cut a limited number, so grab one before they’re gone!
And don’t forget to grab a copy of my book, Piece and Quilt with Precuts for the instructions you’ll need to follow along.
You’ll notice in my finished version I didn’t include any of the light gray strips in the blocks as shown above. I think it looks great either way. There’s enough fabric that you can customize it however you like!
- A copy of Piece and Quilt with Precuts
- One jelly roll (or 40 precut 2 1/2″ strips of assorted prints – includes binding)
- 3 yards of background fabric (or a light colored jelly roll – all one fabric, or a mix is ok)
- 4 yards of backing
- 67″ x 79″ piece batting

I can’t wait to cheer you on as we make this quilt from start to finish. I’m going to cover all the basics from cutting, to pressing and piecing to sewing the backing. And then we’re going to baste, quilt and bind it. So if you follow along each week, you’ll have a finished quilt by the end of the quilt along!
I’m excited to teach you two fun new quilting designs based on the designs in my book!
