Join us for a week of fun! Quilting Chat, week long quilt along and all day sew day!

Starts Monday July 12 and goes until July 16th

Snowdrift & Pineneedles / Quilt Along

This quilt along starts July 12 – 16th.

Every day you’ll work on part of the quilt, so by the end of the week, you’ll have your quilt top complete!

We are here to support you the whole way through.

The flying geese will be sewn in sets of 4, so they won’t become overwhelming.

The pots can be sewn with the paper piecing method or traditional – you choose.

You’ll learn a little bit about dresden plates and how you can make them pretty quickly.

Mix up the colors for a scrappy version, keep with green for a fun green scape version or go with red and make yourself a Christmas themed poinsettia plant. You decide!

Two sizes you can pick from:

The larger quilt size measures: 56″ X 56″ the smaller version measures: 31″ X 31″

Snowdrift & Pine Needles Materials List

With either of the quilts – the 31″ square smaller or 59″ square larger, you can substitute any of the greens for reds – to make them more Christmas or Poinsettia like.

Also, have some fun with those pots! they would be a great place to show off large print Christmas or weave type fabrics.

Make sure you share your fabric pulls in the gallery here.

The flying geese will be sewn with the paper piecing method. They run just a tad small and this method makes them turn out just right for the quilt.

The pots are sewn with the paper piecing method. Try to audition your fabric for the background prior to sewing and cutting, the angle is a little off and has the potential to cause issues.
