I’m so excited! I’ve decided to host a quit along with my new pattern, Stepping Stones.
Stepping Stones comes in two versions--a scrappy one that can be made with layer cakes and jelly rolls or a selection of fat quarters, or a more planned version that's made with yardage and is especially great with large-scale prints.
If you’ve never heard of a quilt along or have been hesitant to join one, here’s your chance!
The quilt finishes at 57-1/2” x 69” which makes it a very manageable size to make quickly.
Each week we’ll build this quilt together and share photos of our progress on Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr so it’ll be real cozy and fun—like our own private beelet! At the end of the QAL, we’ll have a show and tell linky party to share photos of our final quilts!
We’ll get started in mid-March. I’ve had a lot of fun designing this quilt to be fast and beautiful. The design is easy to make even for a beginner and offers a lot of space for some awesome quilting designs.
I know you have other quilt projects, but to make this quilt along more fun, I’m offering some incentives and some prizes! As a special incentive for you bloggers out there, if you plan on quilting along just post your plans on your blog and include the Stepping Stones QAL button in your post. Then comment here that you’ve done that by February 22nd, and I’ll add your blog to a blogroll right here in my sidebar as a thank you. I'll also link back to my blogging friends in every quilt along post!
If you’re not a blogger (or even if you are), you can still win a prize! First prize is a free copy of my book (signed, of course <grin>) and a copy of the Stepping Stones pattern (which includes alternate size options for both versions). To enter, leave a comment here to let me know that you’re on board for the quilt along. For an extra chance to win, help me spread the word about this QAL and then leave an extra comment to let me know how you’ve shared the news—on your blog, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Be sure to use the hashtag #steppingstonesqal whenever you share the news. I'll choose two additional winners for a free pattern of their choice.
I'll choose the winners on February 23rd.
So will you quilt along with me? Leave a comment and get ready for the fun, fun, fun!
If you’re joining in, here is a button you can put on your blog.
Watch for an announcement next week that will include the official schedule and other details. Meanwhile, I hope you'll join me!
I share my blog posts with these awesome linky parties!
