Lighthouse Quilt Along

 

Join me October 30 – November 20!

Fabric Requirements: We will be estimating fabric requirements based on the size quilt you create. See the first blog post for details, on October 30th.

Quilting Basics: There are many helpful online tutorials for beginning quilters–Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson! has a great series here: Quilt Making Basics.

Advanced Techniques: The Lighthouse Quilt Blocks are paper pieced. I will provide instructions in the tutorials, but if you’d like to get a jump start on learning this new skill, you can find a tutorial on my blog here.

Fresh Lemons Quilts Flickr Group: I’d love to see your fabric selections, process shots, and finished quilt through the Fresh Lemons Quilts Flickr group.
