We are sewwww excited to be announcing our 3rd annual Let's Be Friends Sew Along!
I can't wait to unveil the new project....yes, it is kind of a mystery.
Sew Along Fabric Kits
For Block Instructions
(This will be available on July 19th, 2020
as 12:01am EST)
(This will be available after Week 12)
What is a Sew-Along?
A sew-along means that we all sew 'along' together in the comfort of our own homes or with your favourite quilting friends - all while respecting our new 'social distancing' practices! It is all about sewing together yet we can do this virtually! It is fun to sew and share our progress with each other - helps to keep us all on track (including me, who truthfully gets historically behind).
What are we sewing?
On July 19th, 2020, you can download the 'Friendship 3' block pattern instructions FREE
(the Quick Link is at the right hand side of this page).
Please note that there will be only one block (not a different one each week). We will be making this block with different fabrics. Our goal will be to make 1 or 2 blocks a week (depending on the size of quilt that you wish to make) for 12 weeks.
You can share your progress by joining our group on Facebook and Instagram using #letsbefriendssal.
What are the quilt sizes?
This year there are two sizes: Large Lap/Single 67" x 85" or Queen 103" x 103".
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 12 weeks the finishing instructions will be provided. Of course you are welcome to finish your blocks any way you wish - that will be up to you. The setting instructions for both sizes of quilts will be free too! This is going to be so much fun!
Sewing Experience Level?
I recommend 'experienced beginner' and up. This means you have accomplished a 1/4" seam, are comfortable with cutting, measuring and have completed all the steps to finishing a quilt. This block is not complicated and written instructions with diagrams are provided.
Fabric Kits...did I say Fabric Kits!! You bet I did, yes we absolutely will have Fabric Kits and we expect them to ship in June so you will have time to admire them. I am so excited about the fabrics I have chosen for this years SAL and I can't wait to get them here to share with all of you! Fabric deliveries have experienced a slow down due to the Covid restrictions, so photos of the kits will be available as soon as they arrive! You won't be disappointed! We will continue to update this section so make sure you come back often.
We have one request and that is get your orders in for your fabric kits asap. We are working hard but are missing our BCS Team....A LOT! Crossing our fingers that all will be lifted soon and the BCS Team will be together once again, well rested and ready to go. But just in case and to make sure no one is disappointed, we would love your support by putting your orders in as soon as possible.
