For Block Instructions
What is a Sew-Along?
A sew-along means that we all sew 'along' together in the comfort of our own homes or your quilt shop or with your favourite quilting friends. It is all about sewing together - an excuse to get together, sew and share. As if we NEED an excuse!
What are we sewing?
On July 1st, you can download the 'Friendship 2' block pattern instructions FREE (the Quick Link is at the right hand side of this page). Please note that there is only one block. We will be making this block with different fabrics each week. Our goal will be to make 2 or 4 blocks a week (depending on the size of quilt that you wish to make) for 21 weeks. We can share your progress by joining our group on Facebook and Instagram using #letsbefriendssal. I have designed a quilt project for us to work on together. This year there are two sizes: Double 72" x 82" or Queen 102" x 102". If you wish to make a different size you are welcome to, but instructions and fabric requirements will be for these sizes only. At the end of the 21 weeks you can download the setting instructions for both sizes of quilts...and yes, that is free too! You do NOT have to use your blocks in my design! You can choose to do your own setting. This is going to be so much fun!
Please Note: The given fabric requirements are calculated based on the techniques that I have used when constructing the block. If you plan to use a different technique, consider this when deciding how much fabric you require.
