Wainwright Quilt Along Announcement.

Hi, hi! Are you in the mood for some handwork? I am, or maybe it’s safe to say that I pretty much am always in the mood. It’s relaxing…and fun…and portable.

While I love handwork, I know that many of you love handwork too. I also know that many of you are curious about handwork, and so I’ve been thinking that a Wainwright Quilt Along could help get us all going. After doing the Eads QAL last year, I knew that I wanted to plan more QAL adventures for this year. I’m happy to announce that the Wainwright Quilt Along will be up first!

My new pattern Wainwright was a lot of fun to put together. It’s about playing with color, shape and all kinds of possibilities. Each of the appliquΓ© shapes can be shared and mixed between blocks. Plus, there are two different block sizes, which means you can pick one or the other (big or small) OR you can mix and match them both, because I deliberately sized them to work together. I always think that the more possibilities in a project, the better. No worries if any of that sounds daunting! We’ll cover it in the coming weeks, for sure.

Next week (February 15) will be the start of the Wainwright Quilt Along, and I have 6 weeks planned, with a wrap up on March 22. My plan isn’t necessarily to have a finished top by the end of 6 weeks–although that could totally be your goal!–but instead, I’m thinking of using 6 weeks to get some blocks rolling, talk about handwork, and just generally participate with you in some hand sewing. Whether you’re in the midst of winter (my fellow Northern Hemisphere folks!) and trapped indoors, or if summer is upon you (hi, Southern Hemisphere-ies!) and you’re looking for projects to travel around with, handwork is always handy, and I hope that this will be a delight to add into your schedule.

You can grab a copy of the pattern here, or at storesΒ (that’s just a link to a google search, but you could also ask your local shop!).

You in?

    Yes– A small group of us from Central VA Modern Quilt Guild are going keep each other on track (that is the only way I was able to finish The Collection, BTW).

    Hi Carolyn! I am going to do the QAL and just bought the Wainright pattern. I’m very confused about what pieces is/are the templates…I see 3 cut lines. Are there one or two templates? Hopefully this QAL will help clear that up!
    I was at QUILTCON yesterday and your exhibit was AMAZING!!

    • carolyn friedlander March 2, 2018 at 9:02 am #

      Thanks, Lisa! There is just 1 set of template pieces–but with 3 different cutting lines. Once cutting your piece along the lines, you can mix and match the pieces. Hope that helps, and thanks so much for participating!
