This month I’m hosting my first ever quilt-a-long and I’d love for you to be involved. I’ve chosen the Sea Breeze Mini Quilt by Canoe Ridge Creations.
It’s a 9 block quilt that’s made up of squares and half square triangles (HST) – simple. The finished quilt measures 22½” square. A great size for those that want to perfect their quilting on a domestic machine – not a lot of bulk to try and maneuver under the machine.
[pullquote width=”300″ float=”left”]Wondering what a quilt-a-long is? It’s simply where a group of people make the same quilt at the same time. It’s a great way to stay motivated, learn new techniques and make new friends.[/pullquote]
The quilt-a-long will kick off on the 21 July here on my blog.
This means you have 2 weeks to grab the pattern (you can buy it here) and select your fabrics. To help you with your pattern selection I’m going to be listing some fabric kits this week in Shop GnomeAngel. There’s even going to be a sale to help you get even more fabric for your buck. Just sign up to my Newsletter, Gnome Gnews, to get notified of when it’s on.
The final reveal, and end to the quilt-a-long, will be on Saturday 2 August back here. I’ll be posting a link party where you can link to your final quilt on either your blog or via Instagram. Too simple. (Don’t know what a link party is, you can read about them here.)
So that’s 2 weeks to make your mini quilt. Don’t worry if you’ve never made one before, or you’d like some company in your sewing room, there’s going to be some fabulous people both blogging and instagramming to keep you company, motivated and trouble shoot.
Today I’m going to share with you the bloggers that will be writing about their quilts, next week I’ll be sharing who the Instagrammers will be.
