Let’s dive into a summer full of color! In two weeks I’ll kick off my free Quilt Along featuring Color Weave – the perfect quilt that you can work on at your own pace and on your own schedule! This should give you enough time to gather your supplies and be ready for some quilting fun!
This quilt was originally made for the February Quilty Box and they had exclusive rights to it for the first couple of months. Now that the rights have reverted back to me, I was able to release the pattern (in print and PDF) to share it will you all.
Color Weave Quilt Along Supply List
So here’s what ya need to get started:
- A copy of the Color Weave Quilt pattern
- 1 Strip roll with 2 strips of each fabric, or 1/4 yard cuts of 17 rainbow prints
- 3 yards of dark gray for background and binding
- 2 3/4 yards of light gray for background
Here’s the complete pattern cover front and back. You can change it up and use just 3 colors for a completely different look, and I’ve included backing requirements, too. Click the image below to enlarge.
