I’m excited to announce that I will be hosting my first Quilt Along! I’m finishing up the pattern, and taking lots of photos to help you along the way. The pattern, “Just Buzzing Through”, includes instructions for both a throw-size quilt and a baby quilt, so, if this is your first time joining a Quilt Along, it’s a very doable project. The PDF pattern will be available for purchase, on my website, this Friday, May 3rd. The Quilt Along is free and will begin on the following Friday, May 10th.

A two-color quilt doesn’t have to be only two fabrics. This pattern is perfect for fat quarters, or as a scrap buster. Here are some other color placement options.
Using fat quarters or scraps can really add pizazz to you quilt!
Today is a good day to consider joining a Quilt Along!
