Are you ready?
I have been preparing for this day for SO long. Lots of checking and editing and counting. Hopefully, everything is juuuuust right.
Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
Today, we are discussing the I am Enough quilt along. You will find out how much fabric you need and a few other helpful supplies. Please don’t feel pressured to purchase supplies just because I’m using them. In quilting there are always a dozen or so ways to achieve the same goal, so you don’t necessarily need what I’m using. Do it YOUR way (which is exactly the theme of our quilt along).
Some side notes: The quilt along will be taking place on Havel’s Sewing’s Sew Creative Blog. That’s where each week’s PDF pattern will be released and the only place it will be available during the quilt along. I will send you an email each time I release the newest pattern that will direct you to their blog. If you visit my own blog, you will find a bi-weekly post there as well directing you to the Havel’s blog. All prizes will be awarded on Instagram, so be sure you are posting your progress to be eligible.
If you think I’ve missed anything please shoot me an email.
