Mom and I have always wanted to host a quilt along. We’ve seen Farmer’s Wife Quilt Alongs and Dear Jane Quilt Alongs and love both of these fabulous books…but wanted to do something different.
Enter in Sylvia.
After little debate and a flip through her book…we’ve decided to take this idea and make it happen. Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler has 140–6 inch blocks…so at 3 a week it will take less than a year. We will probably take weeks off for major holidays…but then maybe not.
Here are the deets…
to follow along you will need the following:
Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler book (we have it available in our etsy shoppe)
Fabric (we will be making our Bridal Sampler out of cottage florals –i’m sure you all are very shocked at this–) for a starter pack check out our cottage layer cake and our northcote range charm packs.
Thursday, September 6th we will start with the first 3 blocks. Feel free to follow us via email at left or via RSS feed at right.
Mom is using a variety of florals ranging from Cabbages and Roses, Mary Rose Collections, Robyn Pandolph, Anna Griffin, 3 sisters, Blackbird Designs, French General, and Jennifer Chiaverini.
Be sure to join us every Thurday starting September 6th. We’ll have pictures of our progress and maybe tips and recipes.
We’d love to see your progress…maybe i’ll start a Flickr group or have you upload your pictures to facebook. we’ll see as we get started.
–there is no fee to join…we will not be offering kits…just the book and starter packs in our online shoppe.
any questions…let me know!
–have a lovely day!
ps…we are out of most of the quilt mn 2012 fabrics…left on the bolt we have the red cord wood, dark plaid with pictures, the loon on tan, and loon on blue. a fat quarter bundle, sweet rolls, cherrywood blender bundles, and 5/8 yard left of both the stripe and the blue moose…if you are interested in anything or searching out any of these let us know! otherwise…good luck hopping!
