You know me — I love quilt alongs! So, I couldn’t say “no” to the Quilts & More‘s quilt along. It’s called Color Outside the Lines by designers Linda and Carl Sullivan from Colourwerx, and the pattern appears in the Summer 2019 issue of Quilts & More, on newsstands now. (You can also buy the pattern online here.) Here’s a picture of the quilt.
I’m making this quilt for my mom — the first larger quilt I’ve ever made her. It’s being made to match her living room, so the two of us spent a lot of time picking out fabrics that will perfectly match the space. It’s going to look a lot different than the original bright rainbow quilt. I’ll be doing a random block placement and using a mix of prints and solids. The fabrics are mostly from my stash, but I’ll be doing a little shopping to fill in some holes (I definitely need a darker brown).
The quilt along officially starts on May 6, so make sure you grab the Summer issue before then! You can find the complete quilt along schedule and a link to the exclusive Facebook group here. I hope you join in — I’m excited to get started and can’t wait to see everyone’s progress.
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour”,
P.S. I’ll be sharing my progress on my Instagram account and using the hashtag #QAMQuiltalong, so let’s connect there if you’re interested!
