Lets Build a Quilt Together - Quiltalong.

 Do you remember a few weeks back I shared here
the quilts I had made my little girls..
As promised I am going to share the making of these with you 
so you too can make a little girls quilt or a little boys quilt.
 The boys one will be exciting and it has a sailing ship in the middle.
 I will share the links to the tutorials that I used and the 
patterns I wrote also I will give you as a PDF pattern,
 Each week I will show one step of the process..
Every Wednesday we will do another step of the process...

What you'll need:
 Now get those jelly rolls, charm packs or just stash fabrics ready.
 I used about a 1/4 jelly roll,  two charms of Birdy
and some scraps for the girls ones.
 The only thing I bought was my background 2mtrs
and green  fat quarters for my tree.
 Just raid your stash to make one with me....
I will be using this fabric below for the girls quilt
 and my stash fabrics for the boys one.

This is 'Botany' by Lauren and Jessi Jung
 I have a couple of jelly rolls and
a charm pack ready, I don't think I will use it all though
Maybe I can make two.. good idea? Might do that.
 Please feel free to use this picture below as 
a button for the quilt a-long with the link of this blog.
Spread the word so others can join in and have some fun with us.
 Finished size of Quilt 60in x 77in
(A great size for a single bed with extra hanging over)

When will this start?..
 Next Wednesday 12th September 2012
  until we are finished...about 10 weeks
 I have set up a Flckr page for it too...HERE
Just get those fabrics ready and let's sew a kids quilt.

 Hugs Dawn x x x
