Announcing the Lighthouse Quilt Along

 

Lighthouse Quilt Along by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

As promised, at the end of this month I’m going to begin hosting a quilt along for my Lighthouse quilt pattern. This is a fun pattern and we will spend some time talking about quilt design, fabric estimation and paper piecing. If you have never paper pieced before, please don’t be scared away. I’ve done several quilt alongs and each one has successfully created new paper piecing experts! You can do it!

Lighthouse Quilt Along Schedule

October 30 ~ Lighthouse Quilt Top Design
Explore various color ideas and quilt top sizes.

November 6 ~ Lighthouse Test Block Assembly
Make a test block to be sure you are comfortable with the amounts of fabrics used for paper piecing. This is important to do before you buy and cut your fabric for the entire quilt top.

November 13 ~ Lighthouse Block Assembly
Cut your fabric, assemble your blocks.

November 20 ~ Lighthouse Quilt Top Assembly
Put those blocks together to finish your quilt top.

If you are not able to participate at the same time I’m posting or want to work at a slower pace, no worries. The quilt along will be available on my blog as long as my blog exists. For all links and details, including badges for your blogs, click on the Lighthouse QAL tab at the top of page.

    I think I’m going to have to join this quilt along. This will be my first online group social outing. Yay! Love the quilt and this will push me to paper piece, as it’s been a while since I’ve done any. Can’t wait and thank you!

    Not only will this be my first time at paper piercing, it will be my first time at an online quilt along, and my first time blogging…..I guess that’s what this is called. But I look forward to all of it.
