I am thrilled with the completion of this quilt. Making a quilt with such a large group is an amazing way to get your quilting on.
This is my Anthologie quilt that I made from October 2018 to the end of March 2018. It was part of the #BariJQuiltAlong and took place on Bari’s blog here.
During the quilt along I felt supported, encouraged, and excited throughout.
If you find that you often stall in your quilt making, having a group or QAL to hold you accountable might keep you on pace a bit more.
Also if you are new to quilt making, I feel like sampler quilts are a great way to learn many different skills and techniques within the same project.

The majority of the fabrics that went into my quilt is the Wild Bloom collection by Bari J.
Intentions of Anthologie
By making this quilt, which is my very first sampler design (oh, there will be more), I wanted to explore the style “bohemian”.
I hear that everywhere now! I’m drawn to that style a bit, I think.
I also wanted to add other crafts/skills into this quilt, such as: embroidery, tassels, crochet lace binding, and crochet.
I wanted to step up my hand quilting game too. And after all the hand quilting I put into this quilt, I really feel quite comfortable with that skill now. I’m also in love and want to add it to everything.
The Dura Snips
The Dura Snips on a Neck Strap have extra sharp and durable high carbon forged steel blades. Easy squeeze action and unbeatable long-lasting sharpness for precise thread snipping. Fits into a safety storage cap on a convenient neck strap. Fun to use; fun to wear. Keep your thread snips close at hand.
The above descriptions is from the Havel’s Sewing website. When I got the snips I was thinking that it would be great to wear them on my neck and always have scissors when I need them. They quickly became so much more than that. They are THE. PERFECT. THREAD. CUTTERS. It’s like they were made for chain piecing. See a demonstration video here. I’ll never chain piece without them again.

I have found that I very much enjoy hosting quilt alongs. I think they are my thing.
I’ve had to learn to make videos and I REALLY struggled with that in the beginning, but I think I learned a bit there and am certain if I keep trying that will improve.
I would like to get some feedback from YOU. If you participated in this quilt along and have time to let me know your thoughts (good and constructive) I’d love to hear them. Visit this page and leave them for me there.
If you are wanting another quilt along or have any ideas moving forward, or even want something specific, you can include that info.
I feel very strongly about community and I want this place to be somewhere you want to come and be yourself. I also really love hearing from you.
AGF Color Master fat Quarter Bundle includes 10 fat quarters.
Every box is unique and includes randomly selected fat quarter cuts from a mix of Art Gallery collections in a printed designer box.
Can I still make this quilt?
Yes, absolutely. All the posts and pictures can be found on Bari’s website here. If you just want the patterns, you can find them below.
When’s the next quilt along
Well, I’m not quite sure, but I do have something in the works. I’m waiting on approval now and should know if all things are a go in a few weeks.
If approved, the QAL will begin at the end of summer and be focused more on color and choosing and mixing fabrics (something I get asked about all the time). I’ve even got a theme picked out, but I need to shhhh, because I’ve got no okays as of yet.
If you need a quilt along right now, the Morning Sun quilt along is still happening by email and on IG here. We are about half way thru, but there’s plenty of time to catch up.
Thank you for being so sweet and kind and supportive. It doesn’t go unnoticed and I am always grateful.
