RIN Quilt Along!

Today is the day we're kicking off our Rin Quilt Along! Hopefully you have your pattern and maybe selected some fabric. You want to be sure you have enough contrast between your appliqué fabric and the background fabric. Once you've taken the time to appliqué, you'll want to your design to really stand out.

Wednesdays will be our official RIN days and every Wednesday, Cheryl and I will be sharing a tip or our own progress on the quilt. Please share your progress on social media using the hashtag #RinAlong.

There are prizes for completing just one appliqué block (no need to have it quilted). To be eligible, simply email Cheryl or I a picture of your block by July 2nd. We'll be sharing all of them on both blogs for the parade on July 5th.

Winners will be randomly selected for one of four prizes!

Carolyn Friedlander is giving a fabric bundle to one winner (US only)

Aurifil Thread - Aurifil is giving away an 80 weight 10 spool thread set in Carolyn Friedlander colors. (US and International, no PO Boxes).

Cheryl is giving away 3 patterns of the winner's choice from her Etsy Shop. (US and International).

Yvonne from Quilting Jet Girl has joined in the Quilt Along and is generously giving away 2 pdf patterns from her Etsy Shop to one winner.

I will be giving away a signed copy of my book Simply Modern Christmas (US only).

If you've been on the fence, those are some pretty great prizes!

I first saw the Rin quilt on Instagram when Alex started hers. I'm happy to say that she shared some pictures with me, just in case you need a bit of inspiration! Thanks Alex!

Cheryl will be back next Wednesday with some tips on getting started - and folding :)

  2. All ready with the pattern and fabric choices also. Eagerly looking forward to next week's tips :)
