It's coming...QCQAL 2

Back by popular demand, we are hosting another Quilter's Choice Quilt Along (QCQAL) and this time the quilt will be a row quilt!


Good row quilts have a mixture of block sizes so I have designed the throw sized quilt to have 8 rows: two rows each in four different sizes: 12", 8", 6", and 4". All of the rows will be 48" long.

For the twin sized quilt, the rows will be 72" long and some of your rows will be repeated (or you can choose another block in the same size to make your additional row. The twin sized quilt will have three 12" rows, three 8" rows, two 6" rows, and three 4" rows.

Approximate Fabric Requirements:

For throw sized quilt: 2 yards background, 2 yards focus fabrics
For large twin sized quilt: 4 yards background, 4 yards focus fabrics

New rows will be posted on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month.
