Blocks 2 Quilt | Sew Along Series

All posts may contain affiliate links.

You might have noticed but over the last few years I have gotten pretty comfortable with quilting. From my calendar quilt with Inspiring Stitches to my standard block of the month patterns, I’ve been stretching my wings. Now it’s time to take my skills to the next level. To make that happen, I’ve designed a new program called Blocks 2 Quilt.

Looking to improve your quilting skills? Join the Blocks 2 Quilt sew along. Each week a new block will be shared with complete instructions for easy sewing.

Starting in January, I will release a new quilt block each week to help hone your skills. The block designs will be shared in an easy to download format that include 2 sizes and for a limited time, will be available for free in the shop.

The blocks are part of a collection that I’ve been working on throughout the year in my spare time. Seriously, designing has become an obsession.

Here are 10 tips for designing quilts at home. From sketch to stitch, every detail is important and it is easier than you think.

From drawing on graph paper to design software for your computer, designing quilt blocks can be done in a variety of ways. While I love drawing by hand, I want to continue to expand my skills so, I’ve been working in EQ8. Also known as Electric Quilt 8.

You can purchase the software at your local quilt shop or here on line. The best part is that it is available for both PC and Mac. I have mine loaded up on my laptop so that I can use it whenever a free minute pops up!

Blocks 2 Quilt Details

  • new quilt block released each week
  • blocks available in 2 sizes: 12″ & 6″ finished
  • cutting instructions & diagrams included
  • each block is free for a limited time

If you follow along, at the end of the year you will have 52 new designs to add to your block library. Each block will be a simple pieced patchwork construction and have step by step instructions.

So be sure to stay tuned because the countdown to new blocks 2 quilt is on!

    Please disregard the e-mail I just sent with regards to the mitten pattern. Not sure what I did, but I was able to download the pattern. Thanks for a great free pattern.
