Announcing The Border Quilt Quilt Along with Northcott Fabrics

Who is ready for another quilt along? What if I told you it won't start until August, can you be ready by then?

Shown in original fabrics, coming in Enchanted Forest fabrics late spring.

I am so excited to announce The Border Quilt Quilt Along. 

Hello soft gloriousness.

I am even more excited to announce that we will be using The Enchanted Forest Line by Hilltop Designs for Northcott Fabrics, and they have made it into a kit! This brand new line will be shipping to stores in July, BUT shops are ordering the fabric (and the kits) *right now!*

Why is this important to you? If you would like to join the quilt along using the Enchanted Forest Kit, let your LQS (Local Quilt Shop) know, or other fabric provider know. That way you are sure to get it.

We will be using this as the center for this quilt along, but there is enough fabric to make the diamond center if you would rather.

This line is a flannel fabric line, but don't let that scare you!!  Flannel is amazing to work with. I will be sharing tips, plus I will have already made the quilt and will know if there are any issues with any of the blocks.

The quilt along will begin in early August, slightly dependent on when the fabric ships out to stores. We will work on a new border every 2 weeks, which will give those of us in the northern hemisphere a wonderfully cozy quilt just in time for winter, and those in the southern hemisphere all summer to quilt it in preparation for their winter.

The kit is for the largest size available, but you can certainly join and make one of the smaller sizes. The pattern is available now in three places and fabric requirements are shown:
Etsy (paper and digital)
Craftsy ( digital only)
Payhip (digital only)

If you are a store looking to order the patterns at wholesale, please email me directly!

There will be more information and a clearer schedule coming later, but now is the time to let your shop know you want this kit!

If you have questions, either put them in the comments or email me.

Happy (excited) stitching!!

  3. Jen, Would you check to see if this will allow response? Thank you. Linda

  4. Hi Jen, I'm being dumb out here in California. How can I order this kit, pattern and fabric? I can't seem to locate online. Thanks! Marty

    1. Martha I hope you get this answer, I can't email you directly. Fabrics should be shipping soon to the shops, and then I expect they will be listing them. As soon as I find out who has them listed I will post. If you want me to contact you directly, please shoot me an email at patternsbyjen(at)gmail(dot)com
