Quilt Along Supplies

Don't forget your simply half yards book graphic button

The most important supply to get your hands on is Simply Half Yards by It’s Sew Emma, our love letter to half yard cuts. The quilts found in this book include patterns in sizes from Lap to Queen and everything in between! The sew along is inspired by the 16 quilt designs in Simply Half Yards. From simple to complex and traditional to modern quilt ideas, there is something for everyone, and the possibilities are endless.

  1. Have plans changed? Did not see anything on the Simply Starts QAL on the livestream. Blog says “Be sure to subscribe to our Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel and check out our Friday Livestreams to stay up to date on Kimberly’s Simply Stars quilting.” Maybe because this Friday was pre-recorded??

    1. Hi Jocelyn!

      As of right now, there won’t be a dedicated Simply Stars livestream. What was meant in the blog is in livestreams where she updated on her quilting and WIPs you can see her progress.

      Hope this helps!
