Camden road Quilt Along!


How about Quilt Along to start the new year?  Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs  has a new pattern and I was immediately excited to make the Camden Road. It was my last quilt of 2019 and you can read all about it here.

We decided to join forces and host a Quilt Along to start the year! It's such a fun block based quilt and perfect for a bundle of fat quarters or stash fabrics that you have on hand.


The Camden Road Quilt Along will run from January 28th - March 24th, 2020.  The pattern contains instructions for baby, lap, and twin sizes and you can make any size you would like during the QAL.

Post on social media with #CamdenRoadQAL to share your progress with the other quilters.

How many blocks you should aim to complete each week depends on the quilt size you are making. We will have 5 weeks of block making, followed by 3 weeks to catch up on blocks and sew the quilt top together.

You do not have to follow the number of blocks per week, if you prefer you could make all of the flying geese one week, the corner units another week, etc.  The only link-up for prizes will be at the end of the quilt along with the quilt top and/or finished quilt 


Baby size - 9 blocks - aim for 2 blocks/week
Lap size - 20 blocks - aim for 4 blocks/week
Twin size - 30 blocks - aim for 6 blocks/week

Pattern

The Camden Road pattern is available in the Meadow Mist Designs pattern shop for 25% through January 28th using the code CAMDENROAD.  The code will only work on the Camden Road pattern and only in the shop (not on Etsy).
