Texas Teardrops Quilt Along

It’s with great excitement that I’m announcing our very first Quilt Along! I hope you will join us beginning in April. This Quilt Along will feature my original quilt pattern, Texas Teardrops.

As a reminder…you do NOT need to have a blog to participate. Everyone is welcome! Make sure you join the Flickr group and upload pictures throughout your journey. The Flickr group is also a great place to ask questions if you run into any trouble. I have started a discussion so we can introduce ourselves. Don’t be shy…go say hello!

The Texas Teardrops pattern is now available in my Craftsy store. There is a $5.00 charge for the pattern which will increase to $10.00 after the quilt along. Please let me know if you have any issues purchasing and downloading the pattern.

The schedule for the quilt along is as follows:

1 April: Discuss fabrics and notions needed for the quilt. This will be the time to gather your supplies and get ready to have some fun.

8 April: Preparing the templates and fusible web

11 April: Cutting the teardrops

22 April: Adhering the teardrops to blocks

24 April: Appliqueing the teardrops

6 May: Squaring up your blocks

14 May: Constructing the quilt top

21 May: Adding borders

27 May ~ 10 June: Add pictures of your final quilt to the Flickr group and be eligible for lots of awesome prizes.

I would like everyone to know that the schedule is subject to change at my discretion. This is my first quilt along so I may need to adjust some of the dates if it appears I didn’t allow enough time for the different steps. My main goal is for everyone to be successful.

There have been a couple requests to make smaller projects. I am completely ok with that. In fact, if you want to make a smaller version and need a little help with the math, just let me know.
