My Hints and Suggestions for Making the Block
Enjoy Your Block!
Where Can I Find Other Versions of This Block?
We have eight hosts for Segment One, and we all made our very own versions of the blocks. Be sure to visit us all! We all have tips and inspiration. We would love to see comments from you as well!
What are the Giveaways for Segment 2?
We will have a prize package at the end of each segment. As well as a Grand Prize at the end of the Quilt Along. The prizes are open to all participants that are at least 18 years old. If you don't remember what I mean by segment, check out the Introductory Post. You will find additional information of interest there as well as a schedule.
How to Enter
To be eligible to win a segment prize, you need to make all of the blocks from that segment. Share a photo or photos of your blocks (in a single post) to be entered.
For Segment 2, entries will be open from 12:00 am July 2 to 11:59 pm July 16, 2019 (Eastern time). There are three places you can share your blocks to be entered in the drawing:
Segment 2 Prize Package
A Warm 100 queen size batting from the Warm Company.
A fat quarter selection from Dear Stella, “Can You Dig It?” collection.
Three printed table runner patterns from Shabby Fabrics, the Vintage Series.
A free pattern of your choice from from each of these Partners in Design:

Sherry Shish @ Powered by Quilting *up to $10
To be eligible to win the grand prize, you need to make all 13 blocks from the whole quilt along and turn them into a quilt or other project(s). Quilt tops don’t need to be quilted, but projects do need to be finished. Share a single post that shows all of the blocks in a quilt top or project. It doesn’t matter how many projects or what projects you make, or how many blocks you use in each project as long as you show that you’ve used all 13 blocks in a finished quilt top, project, or projects.
To keep the contest portion of the quilt along fair and fun for everyone, only quilters that use all of the designers' blocks [in a quilt top or project(s)] will be eligible for the grand prize. Likewise, our segment prizes will only be open to those that make all of the designers’ blocks for that segment.
We are really lucky to have some amazing sponsors on board for this quilt along! Please check them out as thanks for supporting us. Bluprint, Dear Stella, Everything Mary, Island Batik, Prym, Shabby Fabrics, Timeless Treasures, Warm Company and Paintbrush Studio. Additionally, many of the block designers are donating their quilt patterns.
I am a quilter who is starting a new adventure. After retiring in May 2016, I became a certified Quilt in a Day Instructor. I am certified to teach workshops using Quilt in a Day patterns and techniques. In addition, I am designing my own quilt patterns.
