Wildflower Meadow - The sew along!!

Wildflower Meadow Sew along!

Need some more beautiful flowers in your life? Need more sewing in your life?

Well, this sew along is for you!

I’m soo excited to be running the Wildflower Meadow quilt pattern as my third sew along event!

I’d love it if you’d join me!

 

This is the main information post about the sew along.

I’ll be listing everything you need to know about the sew along here, so if you are interested, read on!

 

What?

A sew along (SAL) is a virtual get together where we all sew the same pattern.

With this SAL, it’s my Wildflower Meadow pattern

You choose your own fabrics and share your progress as the sew along develops.

We can see what each person is making during the sew along by using the #wildflowermeadowquilt (general pattern #) and #wildflowermeadowsal (Sew along #)

It’s a great way to meet new quilters, share your makes and get inspired by the online quilting community.

Also, there’s prizes!

 

When?

The sew along will begin on Monday 23rd March 2020

Sew along will run for 8 weeks from 23rd March – 17th May

 

Where?

The sew along will take place on Instagram, hosted by me, @louorthdesigns and using the hashtag #wildflowermeadowsal

 

Schedule:

Week one - Fabric pull and cut fabric

Week two - Make 4 blocks

Week three – Make 4 blocks

Week four - Make 4 blocks

Week five - Make 4 blocks

Week six - Make 4 blocks

Week seven - Make 4 blocks

Week eight - Finalise your layout and piece your top.

 

You can sew ahead of schedule but to be in with a chance of winning the prizes each week, you will need to follow the weekly schedule when it comes to sharing your progress on Instagram.

 

What do I need to do to join?

You will need a copy of the Wildflower Meadow pattern – This is available via my shop.

There is no official sign up but I do recommend you follow me (@louorthdesigns) and the #wildflowermeadowssal on Instagram. 

I missed the start - can I still join in? Yes, you can join in and catch up at any time!
