Positive Vibes Quilt-Along

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Get ready for some fun because it's time for another quilt-along!

The Positive Vibes Quilt-Along is for one of my newest patterns,
Positive Vibes.  I designed it for my new fabric line,
Treasured Threads with Poppie Cotton, which is in stores now.

Positive Vibes comes with instructions
for 2 size options - baby and throw.
For the quilt along, we'll be making
the throw-size quilt that finishes at 71-1/4" x 85-1/2".

You can get the paper pattern HERE.
Or the PDF pattern HERE.

Positive Vibes is a fat quarter-friendly pattern,
perfect for a Treasured Threads fat quarter bundle!

You are welcome to use whatever
fat quarters you'd like, of course, but if you would like
to make the same quilt version that I'm making, there are
3 awesome quilt shops that are offering kits!

[This Positive Vibes block features Bloom True fabric by Terri Conrad for Poppie Cotton.]

The fabric requirements for the throw-size quilt are:
Bright Print Fat Quarters (Includes Scrappy Binding) - 20
Good Measure Natural Background Fabric - 6¼ yards
Optional Non-Scrappy Binding - 2/3 yard
Backing - 5¼ yards
Batting - 80” x 94”

The quilt-along will start on Wednesday, March 1st, 2023
and last for 12 weeks.  The weekly assignments
will be posted on Instagram every Wednesday.

  1. Hi Amber, I Love, Love, Love your fabric collection. I was searching many of the on line fabric stores that I usually go to this morning and could not find your fabric! I then stumbled upon this list you have and just ordered a fat quarter bundle. Thanks so much for helping us out in finding your fabric!

    1. Oh that's great to hear, that you found it. And it makes me happy that you WANTED it! Thank you!
