I've made this block twice now a 24" version for a Schnitzel & Boo mini quilt swap and a 16" version as a starter block for our Round Robin but lately I've been thinking of making a giant block version as a lap quilt. Plus I have two baby quilts to make this might be a fun present for a family with a newborn!
National Quilting week in Ireland starts the 1st June so we will be launching our Rainbow Rose QAL to coincide with that this Wednesday.
The Quilt-A-Long will guide you through 2 sizes of quilts:
- A baby quilt using 5" squares so perfect for those Charm Squares you may have been collecting. 40" x 40"
- A larger lap/bed quilt using 10" squares so perfect for Layer Cakes! 80" x 80"
The schedule is:
June 1st: Fabric Selection
June 8th: Piecing the middles
June 15th: Piecing the corners
June 22nd: Piecing the centre star
June 29th: Assembly
July 20th: Link up party for assembled and completed quilts
We have sponsors who have very generously offered a fat quarter bundle to the value of €20 as prizes every week with 3 prizes at the end for the final linkup.
Modern Irish Quilters on June 1st!
