Deanna from Wedding Dress Blue, cut out pieces to make a quilt like this one that I made earlier this year. Then she contacted me and suggested we do a quilt along together!
I thought that was a great idea! So today, I’m inviting you all to join in and quilt with us. We will give share each step along the way. You will have 1-2 weeks to complete each step before we move onto the next. We are calling this the Two and Four QAL.
Deanna will be giving out directions for the quilt shown above, and I will share directions for making a very similar quilt. It will be the same basic pattern, but uses larger (and therefore, fewer) pieces.
This will run at a fairly leisurely pace. We plan to have tops finished and ready to share via a linky party by mid October.
Your first assignment is to gather your scraps! You will need half light and half dark. Any color you would like! I’m using red, white, and blue as it will be a Quilt of Valor. Easy peasy! Next Tuesday, I’ll give out cutting directions.
I sure hope you will join us. It’s a great way to clear out those scrap buckets!
Have a great day!
