Ray Quilt Along #2: Cut It Out.

This week, let’s cut everything out! Grab your fabrics and cutting guide, and let’s have some fun.

How about that? I’m pretty excited about where mine ended up, and I can’t wait to sew it together in the next video.

Ray Quilt Along: Announcement and Schedule.

Ray Quilt Along: Announcement and Schedule.

Are you ready for a quilt along?

This year has been a wild ride to say the least, and I can’t think of a better reason to come together to finish it out in a creative way. (Side note: If a Quilt Along is too much for you right now, that is 100% OK. I understand and invite you to bookmark the content to come. You can revisit it when you are ready.)

Here is what you need to know:

WHO:

You and me!

WHAT:

Quilt Along with my new Ray pattern (download the pattern here), which I’m choosing for a few reasons.

  1. The pattern is free. I’m grateful for your support and happy to share this design with you.
  2. Ray sews up fairly quickly and easily. While you can spend as much time on this project as you’d like to spend, I don’t want time to be the limiting factor.
  3. It’s a versatile project, and I can’t wait to see where you take it! The fact that I worked my way through 3 versions so quickly should tell you that a) a lot can happen in a short period of time, and b) this project is creatively addictive. Each version inspired new ideas for the next, and I’d be lying if part of my motivation for this Quilt Along isn’t that I have another idea in mind…

WHERE:

You can stay tuned right here on the blog. I’ll make sure to post weekly content here, but you can also subscribe to my YouTube channel since that’s where I’ll be posting the videos.

Also – make sure to post your own projects on Instagram using the hashtag #cfRAYqal so we can all see it!

WHEN:

Here’s the schedule. Like I said, the project itself can be cut and sewn together quickly, but I’m building in plenty of time so you can separate it out.

+ Nov. 20: Announcement

+ Nov. 27: Make A Plan

+ Dec. 4: Cut It Out

+ Dec. 11: Sew It Together

+ Dec. 17: Baste + Quilt

+ Dec. 31: Bind + Finish

WHY:

After a stressful and challenging year, let’s end on a good note. Also, I love and appreciate you.
