Coming Soon - Aurora Quilt Sew-Along


I am so, so excited to be hosting the Aurora Quilt Sew-Along.  This is my first hosting gig and I cant wait to Sew Along with you over the coming weeks.  There has been a lot of love for the Aurora Quilt so I thought it would be a fun and inspiring adventure to host a Sew-Along.

Earlier this year I designed this quilt to share my love for Half Square Triangle s and as a way to explore and show of fabrics, prints and colours in a quilt. The Aurora Quilt Pattern comes in Two Quilt size options - Lap - 64.5in x 65.5in (164cm x 164cm) and Queen - 80.5in x 80.5in (205cm x 205cm) as well as a Pillow size 16.5in x 16.5in (42cm x 42cm).

The Sew Along will be 8 weeks long which gives you plenty of time to work through the quilt without feeling rushed or overwhelmed.  I will be hosting it over on Instagram using the #auroraquiltsewalong and #auroraquilt hash tags.  There will be prizes from some fantastic sponsors, newsletters with information about each week along with tips and helpful tricks to make your #auroraquilt.
