BIG BLOCKS QUILT ALONG

If you’ve landed on this page it should mean that you’ve signed up for the Free Big Blocks Quilt Along.

This is where you will find all the info you need to make your Big Blocks Quilt!

The Big Blocks Quilt is made up of 3 different easy 20″ Quilt Blocks.

We’ll be making a total of 9 blocks which makes a small lap-sized quilt (roughly 59.5″ x 59.5″) or a larger lap quilt if you add sashing and/or borders.

If you haven’t already signed up for the quilt along you can do so using the link below. Once you’ve entered your email you will get an email with a link to a private video that shows you what the layout for the quilt along quilt will look like and gives you a bit more info to start with.

Putting your Quilt Top Together

The final video in the quilt along series can be found on YouTube here: Big Blocks Quilt Along Finish Video.

This final video shows you how to put your Big Blocks Quilt together and gives you options for making your quilt bigger using sashing and/or borders.

Below are some of the options I talked about in the video for different-sized sashing and borders. Don’t forget to add your 1/4″ seam allowances when calculating the size of strips you will need for your desired size of border or sashing.
