Quick as a Fox Beginner Block of the Month Quilt Along

I was totally excited when Heather asked me to design a quilt that taught a few different techniques and was for a beginner quilter. This is a great way to get started and begin your quilt addiction…i mean, journey.

Each block that you sew will represent a different method or technique for sewing quilts.  We will focus on the basics of quilt construction making this an easy sew along.  One that you can try out a few new techniques {dipping your toe in so to speak} without a major commitment to a whole monster sized quilt.  

Some of the techniques and quilt blocks we will cover during the block of the month are: raw edge applique, keeping our seams ¼”, paper piecing, sewing with points, flying geese, log cabin, dresden plate, curved piecing and more!  I have also included one block which has been sewn ‘cranky’ style. This is a style that I have come up with to release you from the guilt of perfect sewing! This method allows you to purposefully cutting off points, edges… or whatever else comes along in our way.  We will also be making our own applique pattern from a coloring page!

The blocks are 12 1/2″ square and there will be 9 of them.  Together they make the perfect size of quilt for a baby or a snuggle quilt.

This is a free block of the month and is open for all who want to join.  Let's Sew Together!

Hop on over to The Sewing Loft next Tuesday!  This is going to be so much fun!

    I’d love to have a go – it will be my first quilt! Is there a materials list so I could make sure I have what I need ready for the sew along to start?

    I’d love to get my daughter set up on a block of the month club, and the quilt you have pictured above would be perfect for her, as she is a beginner. How do we get set up with this?
