Quilt Alongs and Sew Alongs

The Summer Moon Block of the Month, designed by Carrie Nelson is totally sold out at the fatquartershop.com. However, you can still buy the book and use your own fabrics. Originally, there were 2 colorways … Moda Fabrics Lollipop Garden by Lella Boutique with Essential Dots Backgrounds and Later Alligator by Sandy Gervais with Modern Backgrounds Paper. I chose the Lollipop Garden vintage fabric because the modern was sold out by the time I clicked the add to cart button! I guess this is why we should never hesitate when buying fabric!!! 🙂

Anyway, I received the first month’s fabric and was so pleased with the colors and quality. This quilt is going to be a joy to construct.

This is a slow going Quilt Along.  It is basically a Block of the Month where you buy your own fabric.  The pattern and instructions are found in the 2019 Quilter’s Planner and companion magazine.  You can order your planner here.

You can follow the Quilter’s Planner group on all social media.  Every participate is encouraged to participate on Instagram and Facebook by posting pictures of their progress each month using hashtags #quiltersplanner2019 and #quiltersplanner.  Prizes will be awarded each month to participants that post pictures, but their quilter’s planner must be visible in each photo.

QP 2019 Weekly Blocks Sew Along

The bi-weekly blocks found in the Quilter’s Planner are simple 6 inch blocks that are an excellent primer for beginners.  Each block takes minimal scraps and can made as scrappy as you want.  I am choosing to use the same fabric as the Hexie Snowflake (above).

My original plan is to make 2 of each block and at the end of the year either make a twin size quilt to match the Hexie Snowflake OR maybe use these blocks for the backing and have a reversible quilt.  Stay tuned …


My Perfect 10 Sampler

I absolutely loved this Quilt Along.  It is simple and went together in a jiffy.  You need the book and ruler to participate.  You can order these from the The Fat Quarter Shop.
