Fat Quarter Quilt Along Series

As promised February begins my bi-monthly quilt alongs.

I am challenging myself to create 6 quilt designs that can be made with a pack of 12 fat quarters (I get my packs from The Fat Quarter Shop) and some coordinating solid.  This months is the easiest and quickest! (my favorite combo)  It will be a lap sized quilt and hand tied.  Here is the schedule I plan to adhere to for each of the "quilt alongs"

Week 1 = Gathering of Materials
Week 2 = Cutting of Materials
Week 3 = Assembly of Quilt tops
Week 4 = Quilting & Binding

As the months progress the skill level will increase as well.  So on some months there might need to be a quilt top &  backing to assemble.  They will be presented in two weeks instead of one.  Also for most quilts the quilting does take some time (with the exception of this first quilt).  So, because of this quilting & binding might need to take up two weeks.  Remember though, that I am going to introduce one quilt every two months.  So the next one will be in April, which should give everyone a chance to finish up this first one :)

Here is a picture of what a finished quilt #1 will look like.... yeah, I know... not the greatest pic :( but I promise that you will LOVE it!

Tomorrow the list of materials will be posted.  
Hope to see you around here for the quilt alongs!

Take care mucho,

  1. I happen to come across your blog, great quilt!

    I was wondering where did you get that pattern? I am looking for something simple like the quilt above. This will be my first quilt so I want something easy to follow. Thank you so much.
