Hunt Quilt Along: Let’s Get Started.

Hunt Quilt Along: Let’s Get Started.

Hunt Quilt Along . Carolyn Friedlander

Are you ready for another Quilt Along? I am.

The format of this Quilt Along will be a little different from some of the Quilt Alongs I’ve hosted before. I’m always a fan of finding the right solution for the task at hand, and with Hunt, I thought I’d shape things a little bit differently. Instead of a weekly adventure for a set number of weeks, I’m breaking this Quilt Along down in to 2 parts. First will be a 4-week series that’ll highlight the project in a few different ways. After that, we’ll adventure on to the second part which will be a series of monthly check-ins over the next year.

I know, speaking of the next year sounds a little crazy, but I’m thinking this timeframe can be really good. I’m sure you have many other things on your plate, and rather than feel like we’re adding one big thing to it, I want this to feel like something fun and low-pressure that will carry you through and make you feel good. Taking things one month at a time feels like a good pace to me, whether you’re striving for a big project at the end or something much smaller. This schedule will help support that adjustability, while also giving us something to stay inspired with and excited about. In this first 4 weeks I’ll talk about different ways to break up your project and how to set monthly goals. I even have a special planner to help you get there…because I’m a nerd and like that kind of stuff.

Sound good?

Let me know what you think!

Next week, we’ll dive a bit deeper into the project. In the meantime you can read up about some of my Hunt projects here, here and here, as well as grab a copy of the pattern (here or at your favorite quilt shop) and the templates (if you’d like).

Thanks for reading along, and I’m excited to have you join in!

    A year time frame is fantastic! I think I’m going to make the throw size.

    So glad this is a year long project! Thank you! I have plans to make the throw size but I was worried about losing steam, this quilt along will keep me motivated.

    Is there a link to register Carolyn?

    Because you know I am in right? I love the proportions of the baby quilt, but I also like the idea of more opportunities for fabric play in the throw quilt Decisions, decisions…

    • carolyn friedlander May 3, 2019 at 1:00 pm #

      Glad you’re in, Wendy! Yeah, I hear you! It’s hard to decide. I’ll go over my thoughts and some project ideas in the posts in the coming weeks. 🙂

    Hmmmm interesting …. is there a link to register?

    • carolyn friedlander May 3, 2019 at 12:58 pm #

      Thanks, Kerry! I’ll be posting everything on the blog, so you can stay tuned here.

    Intriguing! I’ve never done appliqué. Will the QAL provide instruction on appliqué techniques or should I try another project or two first to gain some appliqué experience?

    • carolyn friedlander May 3, 2019 at 12:57 pm #

      That’s a great question, Stephanie! You’re welcome to join in. If you want something to practice on you can always watch one of my Creative Bug videos (there’s a link on the side bar). I’ll recommend some in the first post!

      • Stephanie Adams May 3, 2019 at 5:59 pm #

        Thank you! I’m so in love with Harriot and dying to try appliqué.

    I love the idea of this longer quilt along for a handwork project, this is a great project for my train commute to work!

    • carolyn friedlander May 9, 2019 at 1:37 pm #

      Great, Claire! I can’t wait to see what you make!

  10. Carissa May 7, 2019 at 4:20 pm #
