Announcing the Sugar Bear Quilt Along


Very excited to announce today that we are going to have a quilt along! For Sugar Bear!

Signing up will put you on the quilt along newsletter and you’ll receive a notification of any posts to do with Sugar Bear and other details.  You’ll receive an email after signing up for you to confirm subscription, after that you’ll receive a welcome email.  If you receive no emails, check your spam folder, it’s probably in there.


Sugar Bear is a sampler quilt using a modern version of a bear claw block. The quilt measures 70″ square. As always with my patterns, video tutorials are included to help you if you get stuck.

The paper version is available for preorder. PLEASE don’t purchase in addition to fabric or notions as a pre-order or you’ll be waiting for your whole order until March.  Purchase separately until it releases unless you are okay with waiting.


We begin on March 17.  I’m announcing now so you can plan and prepare.  Pattern should release March 8 barring any unforeseeable events.


Havel’s Sewing is hosting this quilt along for me and all the posts will be on their blog here.



More Details

I’ve written this pattern to be built for quilt alongs. Within the pattern is a self guided quilt along, including posts for each section. The purpose of this is so you can go at your own pace and jump in at a later date long after our group quilt along is over. There’s also a video of me making each section as well, not a tutorial, but more of sewing together style video.  These will all release on the blog in the days leading up to the pattern release.


I will be making up bundles over at Meander + Make as I always do as we get closer to the release, you’ll be able to find those here.

Other supplies (optional):



What’s happening now

The quilt is currently being tested by a group of my testers. You can see more of this quilt at #sugarbearquilt.

  1. Hello Melanie, I loved doing the Little Miss Sawtooth Quilt Along with you. I finished it and I’m well ahead with my second one now. I’ve signed up to do the Sugar Bear QA. Do I need to purchase the pattern seperate to the QA or does the pattern come with the QA?
    Many thanks,
    June Yam
