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.

  • My view for the week. #summersampler2018 #moderntraditionalism #sampler #quiltalong #quilt
  • We are traveling to Norway for our final block of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! Designer @warmfolk was inspired by a nomadic art project by architect Sami Rintala called “SALT.” The installation is modeled after the fish racks along the coast where, traditionally, fish were dried in the harsh winds before winter.

  • Worked all week on this (sideways...need a taller design wall) quilt! Gifting it today!
  • Inspired by Art Deco in NYC, @the_tattooed_quilter designed the Chrysler Building block! (Third photo source: “Chrysler Building” by Supermac1961 (CC BY 2.0)) #summersampler2018
