Come join me for a fun Mystery Quilt Along

Come Along - join me for my

FREE Mystery Quilt Along
Play along and have some fun - please join my FREE Mystery Quilt Along

I never really imagined I would host one Quilt Along, let alone two, but since many of you asked for another one I thought why not. 
So many of us are staying at home practicing social distancing.  We can't have classes physically, but we can still come together electronically and do some of the things we love to do. We are all in this together and my hope is that this will keep us connected and pass the time in a meaningful way.

Maybe you just finished my first-ever Quilt Along - Spinning Wheels and have some scrappy 2½" squares left, or you have leftover pre-cuts you can cut into 2½" squares.  

Did you know you can use 2½" pre-cut strips, 5" charms, or 10" squares to make your scrappy little gem squares? - I call them gems - not sure if it is the official word for 2½" squares, but they seem like little gems to me.

Welcome to my Quilt Along - introduction

Welcome to our first Quilt Along!

Join the fun and let me teach you how to make my quilt:  Spinning Wheels.  

See how easy it is to make a curved quilt all while sewing straight seams using Peeled-Back Patchwork.

I designed the Quilt Along so we can work on a different part of the quilt every day.  I have allowed time for everyone to catch up before I post the next step.  

Best of all you can use your scraps.  

The majority of the pieces needed are 2-1/2" squares, which you may have already cut or you can easily cut from pre-cuts;  strips, charms, and even 10" squares.

I will post the cutting instructions tomorrow (19 Mar 2020) at 8:00am EST 

Piecing and sewing instructions for each day will be on my blog at 8:00am EST, starting Monday, March 23 and every morning thereafter until completion.

Join me on Facebook live 10:00am EST tomorrow to give you a short introduction, talk about fabric and supplies and getting ready for the Quilt …
