Quilt-Along Details

The quilt-along runs from October 17-December 11. During the quilt-along, we'll be releasing two block patterns each week.

  • 12 Different Blocks (we'll be making multiples of each)
  • Block Sizes: 6", 6x9", and 12"
  • Finished Size: 66-1/2x80-1/2"

Fabric Requirements

You can choose to make the quilt in the same colors we did or pull from your stash as we go. Each individual block pattern will include fabrics needed, so you can pick fabrics per blocks if you prefer. The download of fabric requirements, below, gives the yardages needed to make the quilt with the same number of fabrics we used. It also includes backing, batting, and binding yardage requirements.

Bonus Block Size

Some quilt-along participants wanted the blocks in 6" sizes, as well. We'll release all small blocks on their release date, except for the rectangle blocks (Peppermint, Tree, and Snowman), as those designs don't easily fit into a square design.
