A Free Beginner's Quilt Along

Saturday, January 20, 2018
Hey Everyone,

Since I am working alone I have decided not to do a BOM this year. It is just too  hard to build the kits and get them shipped all alone. Instead I am going to do two Quilt Alongs. They will be free but I am hoping you will support me by buying some fabric to make them. Both quilts are designed in LemonTree by Tilda.

LemonTree arrives in February and I will have some kits up then for both of the quilt alongs.

This Quilt along is all about beginners. I am writing tutorials to make blocks that I made my first year of quilting (25 yrs ago). That is where the name came from my beginnings. I drafted the blocks that are not traditional blocks (the farm blocks) and as far as I know they are my own. I made a farm quilt my first year of quilting and a cat quilt but those patterns are long lost to time. So I made them somewhat how I remember them, but they are my own.

A Free Quilt Along for Beginning Quilters
 It has long been on my list to do a quilt along for beginners because I want to teach things you don't hear often anymore. A lot people teach themselves with YouTube or Google, and that is great, but sometimes you miss something when you don't learn from experience. I am here to help with that. We will get started this week and I hope you will join along with me.

The Beginnings Quilt Along - A Free Quilt Along for Beginning Quilters
This quilt is baby size 40" by 48" and would be totally appropriate for a girl or a boy (just change the fabrics).

The other quilt will be an intermediate quilt and I will show you a preview of that this week. It will be a large lap size.

Since I am doing this for free I do reserve the right to make minor changes to blocks or fabrics if I feel I need to.

Stay tuned for more info coming this week.
