Be sure you have the American Patchwork & Quilting February 2024 issue, as you will need that for all the pattern instructions and fabric requirements. You can pick up your copy at your local quilt shop, at major newsstands, or digitally from the American Patchwork & Quilting website. You can get your copy from them HERE, or just the article itself HERE , -OR- (hint, hint) you may want to look into an annual subscription when you consider the price of one issue – take a look at their site!
Then, decide on your fabrics. Most importantly, your main color. The log cabin block lends itself to any color palette quite beautifully.
We do still have a few kits available from our partner shops. Grab them while you can!
Once you settle on your main color, you’ll need to choose a complimentary color for your block centers, and then choose your low volume/solid background fabric…
If you’d like to see the full quilt layout in the various colorways we mocked up, be sure to visit our previous blog post HERE. This is also a great one for your overflowing scrap bins! Just use our tips above to assist you in your pull.
Below, we are sharing some “real life” progress pictures from our Fig Tree ladies. SWOON!
There are many ways to organize yourself for sew alongs, or for any quilt project in general. There’s really only one rule: do what works best for you!
What other ideas do you have to help you stay organized while working on quilt projects?
Don’t forget to join us over in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We will be doing a few giveaways, sharing our fabric pulls and block progress, and featuring a few “BFFs” [BEST FIGGY FRIENDS], like we did with our FRUIT SALAD SEW ALONG if you happened to join us for that one.
This coming up week, starting December 18th, is a BREAK WEEK as we all gear up for the holiday festivities. This also allows you some extra time to decide on your fabrics, allow your kit to arrive, and get prepared. We’ll see you on Tuesday, December 26th, for our next sew along update where we will begin working on our first 20 blocks and share a few alternate layout options!
Let the preparation begin!
