Summer Moon Quilt Along – Months 5-8

We are over halfway through our beautiful Summer Moon Quilt from the Summer Moon Block of the Month Book! Quilters from every corner of the world are sewing this whimsical sampler quilt designed by Carrie Nelson. Now that Month Eight of our 10-month Block of the Month club is behind us, let’s check in and see where we’re at!

Each month since May, Carrie Nelson has been giving tips for making the blocks in these short videos. We release three new videos each month on our YouTube channel. Bookmark the Summer Moon video playlist and subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss one.
