Are you ready for this?! I am!!!
I can't even tell you how excited I am for this quilt along! From the beginning, I wanted to dedicate a quilt to my mom who is still living, and have a quilt along, too! Here we are! And I couldn't be more excited!
Here's the schedule for the quilt along below. It should allow for plenty of time to get everything done. Week five's Blocks C are pretty easy, so I added time to catch up there. I can't wait to see what you make!
As the weeks go on, the posts will be linked below, as well as in the general site navigation:
Week 1: Select your fabric
Week 2: Cut your fabric
Week 3: Sew Blocks A
Week 4: Sew Blocks B
Week 5: Sew Blocks C and catch up
Week 6: Assemble quilt top
Week 7: Share!

What tools do I need?

For this pattern, you'll only need basic tools you likely already have. There are some fun extra tools to help speed up the process which I'll share as well, but really all you need are some basic things.
- Cutting mat
- Rotary Cutter (I like Olfa, but it's up to you)
- Clover Hera Marker
- Clover Wonder Clips
- Long ruler
- Washi tape or masking tape (makes sewing small pieces easier)
- Iron of your choice and ironing mat/board
If you are looking to treat yourself or are short on time, these items you see above are super helpful.
- Creative Grids Stripology Ruler XL
- Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers
- Cluck Cluck Sew Diagonal Seam Tape
- Starch and a spray bottle for small pieces

Quilt Along Sponsor
We have an AMAZING longarm sponsor for the quilt along! I'm so excited to share that Joyce at Eva Mae's Custom Quilts will be our sponsor. She's actually one of my pattern testers and her work has been featured in many Art Gallery Fabrics Look Books. She's simply amazing! see below for details.
