Are you ready to make memories with this new quilt along? Join us for the Summer Memories Quilt Along in May, where we’re sewing the beautiful Summer Picnic quilt from Susan Ache’s new book Summer Memories. Keep reading for details about the quilt along!
To join the Summer Memories Quilt Along, gather your supplies and grab your copy of the book so you’re ready to start May 1. For the Summer Memories Quilt Along, we will be sewing two blocks a week, and spend a week on finishing. The nine-week quilt along goes from May 1 – June 26.
The Summer Picnic Quilt is 70″ square when finished and includes five cute, classic basket block designs. If you love a scrappy quilt, this is the time to start organizing your fabrics. You’ll need the book for the pattern, and some optional supplies are listed below. The pattern is written for traditional piecing, but you can use triangle paper for all those little HST’s too.
- Summer Memories Quilt & Cross Stitch Book by Susan Ache
- 1.5″ Half Square Triangle Paper
