Join me for my first quilt along!

Flower Patch Quilt Along 1 
Hi everyone!  As you can see I am keeping busy!  I just finished one of my personal quilts and sadly I won't be sharing the finished quilt for a while, but in the mean time I have been wanting to make one of my patterns again.  Flower Patch is still one of my favorite patterns, it is so fun to piece!  So, I figured it would be fun to get a group going to see all the fun blocks and quilts that come together.  I have most of my blocks cut out, but since I have to be creative with the time I have to piece - I will take my time putting this quilt together.

Since it is summer, I don't expect that we will make this quilt really fast, but if we can get 1 or 2 blocks done in a week we should be able to get the quilt finished by the end of summer.  This is really a lofty goal for me, but I really want this to be something that I enjoy and set aside enough time to make happen.

This quilt is obviously the original and quilted with an all over quilting pattern.  What I want to do is get through the piecing with you, then I will walk you through several ways to quilt this up. I will be showing this all to you in a tutorial form (the quilting part) - but that will be several weeks from now giving us time to put the quilt together.

This picture just doesn't give the quilt justice, but it really is so cute!  So - are you in?  I have discounted both the paper and pdf pattern to only $4.95 - a great deal. You can use the scraps from your stash to make this quilt or you can use a layer cake and jelly roll with some additional background fabric.

I'm using Flats by Angela Yosten for Moda Fabrics.  This fabric is adorable!  If you decide you need a layer cake and jelly roll to join in the fun - enter the code word  "quiltalong" to receive $5 off our already discounted sale price.  The code will only work for the combination of the two precuts ;-)

To all of you who want to share, but aren't comfortable with Flickr or Instagram, send me your pictures to my email  judi (at) greenfairyquilts (dot) com and I will upload them for you!

Should be fun! Please help my first quilt along be a success and tell your quilting friends.  There will be giveaways along the way!
