Hi Everyone! I'm posting on behalf of The Quilting Gallery....
This summer, join the fun in the Aiming for Accuracy quilt-along. This quilt is an original design by, Michele Foster. The quilt finishes at 58″ x 82″ and contains 30 blocks and a few single units. However, no need to be overwhelmed, as the most complicated units are the quarter square triangles. The entire quilt is pieced, no paper piecing, no y-seams and no partial seams.
This is an advanced-beginner quilt. Skills needed include the ability to accurately sew a 1/4″ seam allowance and accurate cutting, so that the puzzle-like design will fit together correctly. Michelle will be providing step-by-step photo instructions for each lesson and tips along the way too.
The first official lesson will be June 27th, with two other posts planned as indicated in the schedule, below. You’ll need these two pre-lessons too. Ideally, you should have your fabric ready to go for June 20th.
You can join the quilt-along at any time. The lessons will remain available on this site, for free, until the end of October 2013. A booklet in PDF format containing the tips and lessons will be available at the end of the quilt-along for purchase for a small fee.
The fabric is from Pat Sloan’s upcoming line Bobbins & Bits. I'm in love with the batiks for this line. Pat’s also quilting along with you and she’ll be using the cotton prints from the same line. The fabric will be available later this summer, be sure to ask your favourite local retailer to order it now. See the Fabric Requirements post for photos.
