QCQAL #2 -- Row Quilt Edition

It's here!


We had so much with this last year, we decided to do it again! Instead of having all of the blocks picked out ahead of time by us, the designers/hosts. YOU get to vote for what blocks you want to see in the quilt! Vote for your favorites, and we put together tutorials for the winning blocks, which get made into a finished quilt! It's a fun process and we hope that you join us for our Quilter's Choice Quilt Along -- Round 2!

Click here to go to Craftsy and download the information sheet -- it contains important directions on pre-cutting your background fabric so you don't have to piece your sashing rows!

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.
