Through The Woods QAL: Week 1

Welcome to the Through The Woods Quilt-Along! I'm so happy you're joining me in sewing this quilt made from my To Grandmothers House fabric! This pattern begins on the bottom right corner with Little Red walking through the forest and encountering familiar faces. Her path ends in an expected place: with Grandma's famous apple pie crumb muffins and our favorite characters spending time together. Let's journey together, Through The Woods.


Week 1: Get Prepared

Week 1 is all about getting prepared! This week we are talking through the pattern, fabric selection, ideas to inspire you, and so much more! Watch the video, below, to learn what to expect from this quilt-along and for my best tips in preparing for this project!
