Sweet Kisses Quilt Along

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

 Good morning!  I wanted to take a second to let you know about a very informal 
quilt-along that I am hosting on Instagram starting next week!

I wanted to host a quilt-along and had my friends on IG vote on which of my patterns they wanted to do.  Sweet Kisses won and I am excited to start next Monday, April 5th.

As I said, this is going to be very informal.  There won't be any sign-ups, weekly blog posts or weekly emails.  Just follow along with me on Instagram @gigis_thimble.  I'll be posting there on my feed and in stories every Monday morning.  Use the hashtag #sweetkissesqal to post your progress!  

My friend Denise Hone from @happyvalleyquilting has offered to give one winner FREE EDGE-TO-EDGE QUILTING (up to a throw size) + return shipping!  She is a fabulous quilter and I'm thankful to her for offering such a generous prize.  I will pick a winner at the end of the QAL so be sure to stay caught up with me and post pictures because I'll be picking the winner from the hashtag pool of finished Sweet Kisses quilts!

Sweet Kisses is beginner-friendly and comes with 2 size options.  Click HERE to visit my Etsy shop to purchase your copy.

I've had questions about other sizes.  While the pattern only includes instructions for baby and throw sizes,  I have created coloring sheets of all the sizes (baby - king) to help you determine how many blocks to make.  The (approximate) finished quilt sizes are not listed on the coloring sheets unfortunately so take note of them here (click on each one for the printable coloring sheet):

This is a great scrap buster quilt and the pluses are 5" square friendly. There is A LOT of cutting in this pattern so I thought most people might want to cut as-they-go so I did not schedule cutting into the QAL timeline. If you prefer to do all the cutting upfront you can cut on your own this week or next.

Hopefully, I covered everything!  Let me know if you have any questions in the comment section below.
Happy quilting!


  1. This is a realllly cute quilt. I have a lot of scraps and I want to make a quilt like this❤️🌸💠🔶🐰 It looks fun, stress free and easy!! Thank you Amber for the inspiration

  2. This is great to hear! I'm currently working on my sweet kisses blocks and will look forward to the additional motivation of a qal on instagram.

  3. Love this quilt and I would love to get that same quilting pattern for my long arm. Do you know the name or did Denise quilt it for you?

    1. Hi there! Sorry, just saw your message! The finish quilt shown at the beginning of this post is quilted with the interlocking orange peel by Karlee Porter. One of my favorite pantos! That was my original Sweet Kisses quilt. Denise Hone quilted the one I made for the quilt along. She used the Modern Loops panto.


I ♥ to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment. I read each one and try to respond as often as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by! ~Amber
