This year our sew-along features a fun, bright and cheerful, "under the sea" themed 43" x 57" lap-quilt. It consists of nine blocks that range in skill, but is still accessible to an eager beginner. The blocks range in size from approximately 7" x 12" to 15" x 28".
Beginning in September the pattern/instructions for a new block will be released on the 1st of every month. The patterns include comprehensive cutting guides, tips & tricks and step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the blocks.
How It Works
Once registered, you are able to access the patterns/instructions one of two ways:
1-Digitally through this website in the a members-only access SEW-ALONG section*
2-You may choose instead to have the block patterns mailed to you monthly.
Block 1 (September) - the OCTOPUS
Block 2 (October) - the DIVER
Block 3 (November) - the TURTLE
Block 4 (December) - the CRABS
Block 5 (January) - the SEAL
Block 6 (February) - the JELLYFISH
Block 7 (March) - the HAMMERHEAD SHARK
Block 8 (April) - the FISH
Block 9 (May) - MESSAGE in a BOTTLE
A kit is also available for purchase and includes:
