We are sew excited to kick off the Two Color Quilt Sew Along with the first block: the Holly & Ivy Block! The Two Color Quilt Sew Along is a spin-off of the Vintage Christmas Sew Along we did with Lori Holt (of Bee in my Bonnet) on the blocks in her Vintage Christmas Book to make the Vintage Christmas Sampler Quilt. However, we were clamoring to do more with the Two Color Quilts she showed in the same book! So this year, we created a sampler quilt with Lori’s block to make the Two Color Quilt, hence the Two Color Quilt Sew Along! You won’t believe how much fun you can pack into a monochromatic fabric set!
Kimberly made her version of the Holly & Ivy block in denim and we even have a Denim Two Color Sew Along Quilt Kit and matching Backing Set to make your own denim quilt. The Two Color Quilt can also be made in other colorways, such as aqua, pink, sea glass, green, red, nutmeg, yellow, or any other color.
All you’ll need to get started is the Vintage Christmas Quilt Book and your choice of fabrics (get fabric requirements here)! We are making our version of the Two Color Quilts using the Confetti Cotton Solids by Riley Blake Designs and Pin Dots and Bake Sale 2 by Lori Holt.
Here are the cutting instructions for the Holly & Ivy Block:
Who’s Sewing Along?
This quilt along will take place every Thursday from April 4 to June 13. Each week, we will be featuring a different block from the Two Color Sampler Quilt featured in denim and different colorways. We will be featuring these blocks on the livestreams on our YouTube Channel on April 5, April 26, May 17 and June 7 at 9 AM CST.
Here are all of the Holly & Ivy Blocks made in different colorways by our wonderful FQS staffers. Click on the photo to enlarge the image and get tips and tricks from our sample makers on making the first block:
