Announcing the Summer Block Party Quilt Along

Who is ready for a fun and low-stress Summer project? Announcing the Summer Block Party quilt along!

WHAT: Join us in creating a breezy Summer quilt with blocks designed by some of your favorite designers! This will be a mystery quilt of sorts, with the blocks and the final layout being revealed along the way. 

WHEN: Starting Monday June 17 (sign ups are open NOW)

  • Each day for 9 days we will email you a PDF pattern for a free 12" Summer quilt block.
  • On June 26th we will send you finishing instructions to turn your blocks into a 44" x 58" quilt.
  • The fun doesn't stop there! Each Friday in July we will send you free BONUS projects to make with your 12" blocks.
  • Sew at your own pace through the Summer!

HOW TO JOIN: It's free to join! Sign up here to receive the daily email with the PDF patterns...AND the bonus projects. 

  • You only need to sign up once with one designer to get the blocks (All designers will be sending out the same patterns each day).
  • Following the completion of the Summer Block Party, you will be subscribed to each of the participating designers' newsletters which are free - and you can easily unsubscribe anytime.
