Crazy Acres {A Quilt Along}

Hi there! I am really excited to announce a new Quilt Along that we are hosting here at Fort Worth Fabric Studio.  If you haven't heard of a Quilt Along or have been hesitant to do one, this is your chance to try your hand at it!

Each week we will go through the process of making this quilt.  Today we will start with the fabric requirements, and we will end with a fun little show and tell party! 


March 11: Fabric Requirements
March 20: Cutting 
March 27: Block Construction
April 10: Top Assembly
April 17: Basting
April 24: Quilting
May 1: Binding
May 15: Show and Tell

I have had a lot of fun designing this quilt, and am really happy with how the final quilt turned out.  It is such a fun, yet modern design.  The design may look complex, but this quilt is made from one block and it is all pieced using basic piecing techniques.  


Quilt size is approximately 48" x 64" Finished 



I, personally have found that coordinating fabrics can be a difficult process when starting a quilt, but here at Fort Worth Fabric Studio--we have taken the work out of it for you.  We have put together two delectable bundles in two different color schemes.  All fabrics coordinate beautifully with each other and are from various different designers.  

The first bundle, Raspberry Crush is a fruity blend of orange, raspberry and lemon. It includes 14 fat quarters and all of them are seriously delicious! :)  This is the bundle I am using for my quilt, and the colors are so vibrant!





To purchase this bundle click here.
Limited quantities available.


The second bundle, Bejeweled is a fun take on a jewel-tone color scheme!  Deep navy and teal paired with some lovely deep purple and splashes of cerise.  I am LOVING this color scheme! It is so rich and will really make a bold statement in your quilt!

Limited quantities available. 

Here is the same design but using the Bejeweled bundle:





Dates and Fabric Requirements:



Fabric Requirements:
The fabric requirements will mostly be the same for each color scheme.  The background fabrics, and backing fabrics are the same.  However, the binding will be a different color for each color scheme. 

Here is the Bejeweled bundle with the coordinating fabrics.  The bundle and coordinating fabrics are sold separately.

Here is the Raspberry Crush bundle with coordinating fabrics. The bundle and coordinating fabrics are sold separately.


Here is a little sneak peek of how my quilt turned out! I will do the full reveal at the show and tell in May! :)

I am so excited for you and the things you are doing this year!! I'm not sure I can take on a project right now... but then you showed the bejeweled colorway!! Serious consideration now. So pretty!!

Lindsey said...

Hi Julie! I am glad you like it. The finished quilt (after quilting) is 48" x 64" approximately. You could definitely make it smaller or larger with more blocks or less blocks!

Would love for you to join!

Warmly,

Lindsey

Rita McCart said...

Do I have to use these fabric selections for my quilt?

Fort Worth Fabric Studio said...

Hi Rita! No you don't have to use the fabrics that we show here, you are more than welcome to make the quilt with whatever fabrics you'd like! Would love to have you join in! Thanks for stopping by!

Warmly,

Lindsey

KathleenD said...

How do I join you without having my own blog to which one is supposed to attach your "button"?

Fort Worth Fabric Studio said...

Hi Kathleen, You don't have to have a blog to join the quilt along - for those that do have a blog, it's fun to add a button to show their readers what projects & quilt alongs they are working on! But if you don't have a blog, don't worry about that at all - just keep checking back here for updates! We will be posting step by step instructions and give you time in between the posts to complete the steps! :)
