Handmade with Love | Sew Along

It’s time to do something different on Sewing with Scraps, a sew along! Since the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye we thought it would be fun to stitch something special, together. Say Hello to the Handmade with Love Quilt Along.

The holidays are coming and we want to plan ahead. That's why we're so excited to start our Handmade with Love Quilt Along. Come join the fun and finish with plenty of snuggle time.

Handmade with Love Sew Along Details

Start Date: September 1, 2020

Finish Date: November 24, 2020

Where to Buy the Pattern: The Handmade with Love pattern is available in both an instant download and printed copy at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Fabric Options: We encourage you to pull fabrics from your stash but also understand the need to pick up a few pretties. Here are a few of our favorite Fat Quarter Bundles. (from top left to right- Joy, New Forest Winter, Fa La La, Swell & Sweet Christmas.)

We are getting ready for the holidays by making a Handmade with Love Quilt. Join us for the free quilt along.

Block Order: To grow our skills, we will start stitching the simplest blocks first and building up to the most complicated. However, you can sew them in whatever order you like.

How Fast Will It Be?: We will be sharing a new block every other week. Depending on the block, you will need to stitch a few blocks each week to complete your quilt top. This is an easy-going pace that will keep the season stress free.

Sew Along Days: Our blocks and helpful tips will be released on Tuesday’s at SewingwithScraps.com (you are here). Reminders will also be shared on the Sewing With Scraps Facebook page and in the newsletter. (Click here to join.)

So go ahead, order your pattern, look through your stash and gather your supplies because in just a few short weeks, the fun begins!
