Loverly Quilt-a-Long!

Welcome to the Loverly Quilt-a-Long! I am so excited to start this project! For the next month, I’ll be walking you through this design from my book, Adventures in Hexagons, and sharing all kinds of tips and tricks to help you make it.  Best part is, we’ll be finished before the holidays, so you’ll already have a jump start on your handmade decorating or gift giving!

 

 

 

Supplies you will need to participate:

Your own copy of Adventures in Hexagons- I will not be providing fabric requirements or patch sizes in this quilt-a-long. You can get a copy of my book from my online shop, Amazon, or C&T Publishing.  (Digital and print versions available from Amazon and C&T, autographed copies available from my shop!)

Fabric- see below for the color options I’m playing with.  Basically, you will need a main (or background) color, and three accent colors

Templates of your choosing- I recommend From Marti Mitchell Shape Set G for hand or machine piecing, and Paper Pieces’ Loverly Paper Pack for English Paper Piecing.

Fabric choices:

I will be making two versions of Loverly for this quilt-a-long, one patriotic:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and one with an autumn theme:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both will be Christmas gifts for family members, double score! Aren’t we going to be smug and hard to live with when we have handmade gifts finished before November?!
