2010 Quilt Along

Start the New Year with a fabulous new quilt!

We’ll be completing a jelly roll friendly, stash-busting, scrap happy brick quilt. I know for some avid quilters this is well…simple. And you’re right — I was going for simplicity since this will be my first online quilt tutorial. Not to mention, quilting is not my full time job (yet) and I wanted to show others that it’s possible to create a beautiful quilt within 30 days and still fulfill life’s other obligations.

I’ve built a schedule that provides a full week to complete each task. Since, people will be sewing at various speeds, I’ll post the upcoming assignment on the Wednesday prior to its official start day.

A schedule is below and links to posts will be added as they become available.

Dec 15- Jan 1 : Raid stash for 2.5 inch strips. Be sure to check out the fabric requirements and supplies.

Jan 2: Cut fabric

Jan 3: Sew Strips & Cut Blocks

Jan 9: Sew blocks together

Jan 10: Sew rows together

Jan 16: Sew backing fabric and Make a quilt sandwich

Jan 17: Quilting

Jan 23: More Quilting

Jan 24: Binding & More Binding

Jan 30/31: Free weekend to catch up

As you can tell, I’ve included plenty of time for a time constraint, full time working parent. Since, most of the quilt work will not occur until after children are asleep, I’ve tried to chunk this quilt into manageable time frames spread through out a week. Hopefully, this will work out for my fellow quilters. If not, then I’ll try another method :)
