The Sew Intertwined Quilt Along has been created by Jen Excell of SewHappyGeek and Melissa of SewBitterSweet Designs. We collaborated on the design of the quilt, and we really hope you like it as much as we do. We'll be adding images of the quilt that have been tweaked here and there to the Sew Intertwined Flickr group.
Most of the blocks in the quilt are fairly straightforward. However, the woven blocks can be a bit tricky, and we'll be sharing two different techniques (paper piecing and traditional piecing) to make them so you can decide which technique works for you.
How to join: All you have to do is join the Flickr group and get started! The schedule is below – we’re doing this QAL at a more relaxed pace, and you’ll have until 6 Sept to post pics of your completed quilt top in the Flickr group pool. On average there are 10 days between tutorials to give you plenty of time to piece each section of the quilt.
