Beginners Unite Quilt Along

The Beginners Unite Quilt Along is almost here!

This first post is just going to talk about fabric requirements and "the plan." You can download the free lap sized quilt pattern HERE. 

Fabric Requirements

Teal -  1 1/3 yard
White  - 1 ¼ yard
Black – 3 ¼ yard
Grey – 2 yards

I will be making my quilt using the Haiku 2 fabric line from Monaluna. 

Teal is the Clover 2 (I used 2 yards for fussy cutting the center)
White is the Shimmer 2
Grey is the Shimmer Lawn

The Quilt Along starts September 5 and will continue every Tuesday through October 31. This will take us from the first cut to the quilting.

September 12 - Cutting (including fussy cutting the center)
September 19 - Center block
September 21 - Look at marking tools
September 26 - Flying Geese week 1
October 3 - Flying Geese week 2
October 10 - Half Square Triangles

I hope you will join us in this fun quilt along! To receive email notices sign up HERE. This is a new set up for me, so please be patient as I work out any bugs that may come along.

I've just started a new Facebook group called Quilt and Learn with Patterns By Jen. I would love to have you join. We can share our progress pictures and get questions answered fast.

Happy Stitching!
