Feels Like Home Quilt-Along

Wednesday, June 5, 2024

 Good morning!  I have some exciting news!  Later this summer, I will be hosting a quilt-along 
for this pattern, Feels Like Home and I'd love for you to join the fun!

Dates: August 7th - October 16th (11 weeks)

The quilt finishes at 92-1/2" x 92-1/2".  It's big but oh so cozy!

You can use your stash and scraps for a great scrap-buster quilt!

OR, you can get a kit for the exact quilt shown in the pattern from The Quilter's Crossing, HERE.
The kits are on pre-order right now.  Limited quantities will be available.  The fabrics in the kit are from my new collection with Riley Blake Designs called Feels Like Home (which is what I'm using for my quilt).

There is a little bit of paper piecing for the roof units but everything else is traditionally pieced.
If you haven't paper pieced before, don't be intimidated!  There are only 13 roof units with only 5 pieces in each unit.  I have a really awesome video coming out with Riley Blake Designs at the end of the month that will show you exactly how to do it!  This is a great time to learn and master the art of paper piecing.  You can do it!

The materials/supplies needed are: 

1 yard of light leaf print fabric for blocks & inner border
½ yard each of 9 light print fabrics for blocks
1¾ yards of pink floral fabric for blocks & outer border
1 yard of navy floral stripe for blocks & binding
1⅜ yards of brown print fabric for blocks & roofs
½ yard of yellow floral fabric for blocks & chimneys
⅜ yard each of 10 dark print fabrics for blocks
100” x 100” piece of batting
8⅜ yards of backing fabric
7 copies of roof foundation paper pattern (14 roofs total, one is extra)
Elmer’s Washable Glue Stick

The schedule is as follows:

Aug. 7th: Get fabric & make copies of roof unit FPP pattern
Aug. 14th: Do all the cutting
Aug. 21st: Make 13 Roof units
Aug. 28th: Make 25 Heart units
