Everytime I have a giveaway (see previous post, if you haven’t already), I feel guilty. After all, there is one giveaway gift and 500+ of you. And each of you is important. How is that fair? So, each time I have a giveaway I try to share a tutorial also to even it out a little and make sure there is something for everyone.
This time I thought I would do a sort of quiltalong. Does that sound fun?
Remember when I shared this?
I am turning it into a quilt called Super Stars.
If you want to participate you need either:
1. layer cake–42 10″ squares, or
2. four coordinating 5″ charm packs (it really helps if they are in pairs–so you have two of each charm), or
3. 160 scrap cut 5″ squares. Again, it really helps if they are in pairs, at least two of each type of fabric. So, cut or raid your scrap box for 2 5″ squares of 80 different fabrics. This will give the coolest, genuine scrappy look. As soon as the quiltalong is over, I am making one of these.
You will also need background fabric, about 5-3/4 yards.
I will post the first set of directions on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Once the quiltalong finishes, the entire quilt will be posted as a tutorial.
We are making a full size quilt, approximately 78″x96″ finished. Not hard. Large pieces. Reasonable pace. Oh, come on and jump in!
