Join me April 22, 2024- May 22, 2024 for a Saint Paddy sew along, reminiscent of the Emerald Isle. I know, St Patrick’s Day is over, but we can dream and get a jump start for next year. This will be for a paper pieced quilt. You are more than welcome to make all rounds except for the center patchwork style.

Along with the paper pieced templates in each release (except for medallion) I will include cutting dimensions for borders, middle patchwork blocks, and top and bottom checkerboard border.

You will have one week to download the information for each round free. When the new round is published the previous round will no longer be free, but available for purchase. If you don’t want to wait for each round to be available the entire pattern it’s available for purchase here.

There will be a weekly linkup post to share your progress if you like. If you need help linking up, let me know and I will help you.

Quilt Specs

Stop after any round for a wall hanging- 36″, 44″ or 52″.

Lap Quilt- 60″ x 72″.

You will need some paper piecing knowledge, detailed directions not given.
