Join the Summer Block Party QAL!

Who's ready for a fun summer of sewing?

Join me and seven of my designer friends as we host a free summer quilt-along featuring the cutest summer-inspired blocks! The participants will receive 8 block patterns, the quilt setting and finishing instructions, and special bonus projects for each designer (in case you want to use your blocks in different ways!)

The fun starts on June 17. Each day, we'll release a brand-new block. These blocks are easy and go together quickly, so you can spend about an hour of sewing each day and finish the quilt by the end of the month.


The fun continues throughout the month of July! Each Friday in July, we'll release two free bonus projects for you to make using the Summer Block Party blocks.

That's SO many free patterns! It's going to be a blast!


How To Get the Blocks and Patterns

The blocks and patterns will only be available through email, so make sure you sign up for the Summer Block Party newsletter!

Each day, you'll receive an email with the block pattern to download as a PDF. As a special treat, I'll also be including a special "deal of the day" discount on my most popular and new patterns! You won't want to miss it!

Fabric Requirements

The quilt uses a modern red, white, and blue color palette. When you sign up for the newsletter, the welcome email contains the list of fabric requirements and the fabric names (the ones shown are from the Confetti Cottons and Seasonal Basics Stars from Riley Blake Designs). But you can use any fabric you'd like -- or even pull from your stash!

The quilt finishes at 44 1/2" x 58 1/2", making it a great picnic quilt or small lap quilt!

Here's a special sneak peek at my block. I can't wait to share more!


Participating Designers

There are eight designers as part of this quilt along, but you only need to sign up once with one designer, to get the blocks. Signing up will subscribe you to all of the designers newsletters, which are free - you can unsubscribe easily anytime.

But please give the other designs a follow on social media or check out their blogs! It's going to be so fun to follow along with everyone's blocks!

And if you're posting a social media, use the hashtag #SummerBlockPartyQAL, so I can cheer you on!
