Join us for the Vintage Kite Quilt Along!

Let’s go piece some kites and send them soaring! We recently released a new and easy way to make the classic Vintage Kite quilt block using foundation paper to get perfect points and master the intricate piecing. Join us this April for the Vintage Kite Quilt Along with Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet Co. and read on for the details to join us in having some good old-fashioned fun!

The Vintage Kite Quilt Along supplies are listed below, and you can find them all on the Vintage Kite Quilt Along supplies page.

Quilt Along Supplies

The paper pad includes a guide with various quilt sizes that you can use to customize the size of your Vintage Kite Quilt. Make your quilt your own by choosing a layout that fits what you have time for!

For those daunted by the design of these quilt blocks, look no further than our Vintage Kite Foundation Paper and Vintage Kite Block Tutorial. Our video tutorial will guide you through everything you need to know, and you can follow along with Kimberly in the video as you work.

Quilt Along Dates & Details

The Vintage Kite Quilt finishes at 64.5″ x 76.5,” and Kimberly is making hers using the Bee Cross Stitch White Alpine Background and Bee Vintage collections by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.

We’ll put the 6″ Vintage Kite Quilt Block on repeat for a classic quilt that will take your sewing to new heights! Starting Wednesday, April 12, 2023, we will sew these scrappy blocks into a beautiful quilt.

For the duration of the Vintage Kite Quilt Along, we will sew one row each week, leaving one week to assemble all the rows to create the center and one week for borders and finishing.

Come back to the blog on Tuesday, April 11, for the Vintage Kite Quilt Along Kick-off and full pattern release!

  1. Oh yes! I made to Kite Table Runner from the Jan 2023 Sew Sampler Box. It was so much fun and knew I wanted to go for at least a Throw Size quilt. I’ll be traveling a bit but by using the Kite Foundation Paper it’s a snap. Excited!

  2. I am just getting started on the Vintage Kite Blocks. I hope I’m not too late to join in.
