Quilt Big Blog Tour - Wrap Up - Part One


It certainly has been an exciting few weeks getting to share with you all the wonderful Designers and Creatives that have been making projects for the Quilt Big Blog Tour.  So many of these wonderful people I have met personally through my quilting journey and it is so exciting getting to showcase the amazing work they do.   Have you been following along the #quiltbigblogtour

Here is a wrap up of the first part of the Quilt Big Blog Tour and the beautiful projects that have been made. I really love how these designers show that you can take the blocks from the book and then make them into any project you desire - not just necessarily what is shown.

End Game Quilt Sew Along - Getting Ready


Back in January I was so excited to release this Quilt pattern - End Game - little did I realise just how much you guys were going to love it too.  So after such an amazing response it was easy to choose this for the next Sew Along.

Starting March 11th we will be kicking off the #endgamequiltsewalong

The End Game Quilt Pattern comes in two sizes - the Full Size at 62.5in x 72.5in (159cm x 184) and the Mini Quilt size 20.5in x 22.5in (52cm x 57cm).  Included in the pattern is a Colouring Page to help you work out your colour placement, as well as Cutting Tags to keep track of your fabrics as you cut them. 

The #endgamequiltsewalong will be held over 6 weeks - this gives you plenty of time to get yourself all organised before hand and has that causal approach to the timing so that it is not overwhelming for anyone.  I will be hosting it over on Instagram using the #endgamequiltsewalong and #endgamequilt hashtags.  There will be prizes from some fantastic sponsors, Newsletters each week with information about each weeks' task, along with tips and tricks to help you make your #endgamequilt

So no matter where in the world you are you can Sew Along with us.
