Before we head off to SNAP in just a few short days, we wanted to make sure you had your supply list, so you can start gathering supplies before the Quilt Along starts on May 3.
Here is the quilt and pattern we will be following for our quilt along – it’s a simpler pattern, quilted in rows.
This pattern is a very blank slate that i s easy to work from – for instance, I’m making the yellow and pink sections all a neutral color so it blends together with only the bricks of pattern and color. I am also planning to stagger the “bricks” by cutting the first block of every second row in half and adding the other half to the end of the row. This will create a bricklayer effect.
Before I list your supplies, do you want to see the fun fabrics that Sarah and myself picked out? After all, picking fabrics can be so much fun!
Here’s mine… Dino Roars by Michael Miller:
And Sarah’s is… Hello Sunshine by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake:
Now you get to go pick out your own fabric – make sure to save a picture so you can upload it to the facebook group and show us your selections!
Here’s what you’ll need:
(Quantities and pattern from allpeoplequilt.com)
11 “fat quarters” (18×22″ pieces) for the patterned bricks
1/2 yard of solid color for the small rectangles between the bricks (shown in pink)
4.5 yards solid color for rows between patterned bricks (shown in yellow)
3/4 yards solid color for binding (shown in green)
5 7/8 yards solid color for backing
curved safety pins
rotary cutter (or scissors, but rotary cutter is easier to work with – don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it)
The finished quilt is a twin size quilt and measures 67 x 98.5″, and the quantities are based on 44/45″ wide fabric. The measurements also include 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Are you excited yet? We are, and we can’t wait to see your fabric selection!
