Summer is right around the corner and what better way to kick off the new season than with the gorgeous Summer Moon Quilt from the Summer Moon Block of the Month Book! Carrie Nelson, beloved quiltmaker, designer and writer, has created a sampler quilt unlike any other. The Summer Moon quilt is for her fellow quilters who love samplers, but also crave a touch of whimsy!
This quilt along will go along the schedule of the Summer Moon Block of the Month. We’re sold out of both the vintage and modern block of the months. However, using the fabric requirement below, you can make your own version, or follow along with our three quilters who are using other collections for this quilt along. We cannot wait to get started!

All you’ll need to get started is the Summer Moon Block of the Month Book and your choice of fabrics! Here are the general fabric requirements to make your version of the Summer Moon Quilt:
