When I showed the quilts that I want to make for Chad and Nicole, there were quite a few requests for a Quilt Along for Nicole’s quilt.
This is a simple and quick quilt and I’ll be happy to do this as a Quilt Along.
The quilt measures 63” x 81” but could easily be made larger by adding more blocks (or smaller by making fewer blocks).
There are a few triangles and some flying geese but there are no half square triangles!
I will leave the posts up so if you can’t make it along with me, that’s fine. I will go quickly . . if you truly want to quilt along with me, get some meals cooked ahead, clean your house, bake some goodies and put them in the freezer. I’ll have meatloaf, green chili pork stew, stuffed peppers
The Quilt Along will be done in the Quilt for an Hour format where the instructions will be given in increments that should take one hour to complete. This is the way the patterns are written in the book, Weekend Quilts. The instructions will be posted on weekdays only so that gives weekends to get caught up if anyone falls behind. The posts will begin on Monday, June 25. The posts will be posted in the afternoon so as not to interfere with Design Wall and On the Needles posts that happen on Mondays and Fridays. I cannot tell you yet how many posts there will be . . the instructions are not written yet.
Tomorrow I will post some additional color options, as well as my own fabric choices. In the meantime, here’s the sheet that you can download and print. On this sheet are the yardage requirements, as given by Electric Quilt. You will notice there’s also a blank square on the sheet where you can paste or tape your fabric choices for easy reference.
The yardage chart does not include yardage for binding. I cut my binding 2-1/2″ and for this quilt, I will cut 9 strips, though I will probably only need 8 so that’s 22-1/2″ for the binding or 5/8 yard but that’s exactly the amount you need so if I were buying fabric, I’d buy an additional 3/4 yard for the binding.
