Introducing the Friendship Quilt Along

“One of my favorite things about the quilting industry has been all of the friends I have made.”

We are sew happy to be a part of Amanda Herring’s newest quilt along, the Friendship Quilt Along! This 8-week Quilt Along will take place on Amanda Herring’s blog, where she will be posting the block patterns every Friday, and we will be posting the video tutorials we made with her on our blog. You can get the entire pattern set for the Friendship Quilt Along HERE. We also have the Friendship Quilt Kit, Friendship Templates and Friendship Quilt Along Button Pack to help you make the complete quilt!

Amanda used her newest collection, Hello, Lovely for Riley Blake Fabrics, to make this quilt (check out the video of the collection HERE). The Friendship Quilt is perfect for quilters of all levels, from beginning to advanced, and mixes applique and piecing. Using our Friendship Templates will help you make the petals and leaves for the quilt with ease.

And the Friendship Quilt Button Pack bring accents to the quilt! Whether you make the entire quilt or use the blocks as stand alone pieces, you’ll be left with an amazing end product!

And finally, we have an Aurifil Thread Box specially made to go along with Amanda’s Hello Lovely collection! Check out the full video showcasing the Hello Lovely Small Aurifil Thread Box HERE!

The Friendship Quilt Along begins June 1, 2018 and will end August 31 so be sure to grab your Quilt Kits, Templates and Button Packs, watch Amanda’s video explaining the Quilt Along and head over to Amanda’s blog to follow along with the Friendship Quilt Along! Amanda will also be having bloggers make each block so be sure to take a look at those for quilt-spiration!
