So many lovely photos in the #crochetsewalong hashtag you guys! If you don’t follow along on Instagram, you really should take a look at all the wonderful quilts in progress over there! Here following are a few great ones in a variety of stages of the quilt… (sorry that I just couldn’t match pic with the author… it would have taken me forever to do that! So if you find your photo here in this post, thank you, thank you!)…
Watching you guys work on these blocks for the last couple of weeks has been so much fun, I can’t even tell you! As I mentioned in the beginning of this Sew Along… I have never organized nor participated in a sew or quilt along before this so I really had no idea what to expect! The latter due to work and deadline constraints and the former, because I never knew how to do it nor how to organize it. But now that I have seen all of your inspiring quilts, I am definitely going to do it again… you guys are just going to have to tell me what pattern you want to do it with. Maybe we could do one this fall with something autumnal feeling?
So for those of you who worked all the way through to a completed quilt… congratulations! Seriously, this quilt was definitely fun to put together but it had lots and lots of pieces and you guys did a fabulous job of staying on task! I am very impressed and proud of you all!
For those of you who are somewhere in the middle of the process of your quilt… don’t despair at all. Keep going, keep checking in with each other and keep using the hashtag… who knows maybe we will do a special prize in August for those that kept on going even though they didn’t finish for the deadline! The hashtag isn’t going away so it can keep inspiring you to finish for a long time to come!
Anyway… just wanted to thank you all for participating. And if you are one of the motivated folks who posted a PHOTO OF YOUR FINISHED QUILT TOP by today’s deadline, please EMAIL ME your mailing info to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a special little goodie in appreciation!
Let me know in comments what helped you the most to keep you motivated and moving through the steps? Getting started? The structure? The photos? The community? The prizes :-)? Anything else??
Speaking of prizes… check out our Instagram tomorrow to see the winner of this weeks photo!
Thanks for joining us friends!
