The Hills Quilt Along: Have you signed up? It's FREE!
If you are on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen my posts about The Hills Quilt Along. I am so excited to be presenting my very first QAL and honored to be doing it in tandem with quilty friend, Latifah Saafir! My Hills quilt is based on Latifah's pattern, Molehills.
I love the big arching fans and the ability to show off my SKY ombrés accompanied by my Chalk and Charcoal prints. I had started this quilt during an online class Latifah offered during the pandemic and when the quilt was finished, I was so smitten with the results that I had to share it with you as a quilt kit. And what better to expand upon the enthusiasm than to offer a QAL (Quilt Along) to all our followers, with tutorials, encouragement and group support in making this awesome quilt.
The Quilt Along begins next Monday, January 22nd and lasts six weeks ending on February 26th. There will be videos, pdfs and written instructions for you to get all the extra helpful tips and tricks. To join in on the fun, sign up for the QAL and receive a weekly email from me and Latifah. Latifah teaches us how to make these fans with ease and accuracy, so don't be deterred by the curve!
Just getting started?
For week one, you need just three things:
1. Purchase the Molehills Pattern from Latifah
2. If you like using acrylic templates over paper ones, purchase from Latifah.
3. Gather your fabric from your stash or order a The Hills quilt kit from my shop. This is the personal part of a QAL and what makes it so exciting. I believe all fabrics will look smashing in this quilt once the concept of color and variation is considered. We are on round two of kit shipments which are expected in March, so videos will be available for months to come. We've got over 500 signups so far, Woohooo!
Whether you have the desire to join in or watch from the sidelines, be sure to follow along on our social media posts to get updates on work in progress, participant's fabric decisions, Q&A, interesting tips, etc... We know many of you are going to blow us away with your talented making, creativity and color selections. Below are the follow along links:
