Oh! Sweet lovelies! It’s time to start choosing fabrics. I’m releasing two PDFs today for the Little Miss Sawtooth Star Quilt Along. If you aren’t signed up for this quilt along yet, you can do so in this post.
Let’s get all on the same page real quick, shall we? This is a free quilt along. It will release slowly. Today I’m releasing the Introduction PDF and the Coloring Sheet (page 1 and 2). The quilt along doesn’t actually begin until September 6. Starting on that soon to come day I’ll be releasing two patterns every other week for us to work on.
I know there are some of you who just really feel the need to have a paper copy of a pattern in your hand, I’ve taken care of you. You can get a paper pattern here (available as a pre-order for now). It’s not free. Naturally, if you purchase the paper pattern, you do end up with the whole pattern in your hands all at once and can work on it at will while the rest of us work at the bi-weekly pace.
Get a personalized Little Miss Sawtooth Star quilt along label for your quilt.
So here you go. Download the PDFs by clicking the links below. The “Introduction” is just a bit about the quilt along, and includes your fabric requirements and supplies (a ruler or two you’ll see me use).
Remember that Havel’s is sponsoring this quilt along and because of them, it’s free for you. Let’s show them some love if we can. You can use my coupon code “SouthernCharm7” at Havel’s Sewing and receive $7 off any purchase of $25 or more.
I don’t know about you, but after I’ve decided on the pattern of quilt I’m going to make, it’s ALL ABOUT THE FABRIC. You just have to be as obsessed as me, aren’t you?
This Wednesday, we will be digging in deep talking about fabrics for this quilt. I’m talking what fabrics look best, backgrounds vs. prints, what’s going where and how I’ve got the fabric requirements divided up. We will be discussing all of this on Wednesday. Plus, I’ll be showing you all the blocks that we will be making in this quilt!
Today, however, I’m showing you the fabrics I’ve chosen to sale over at Meander + Make curated especially for this quilt along. I’ve made two bundles for you to choose from (if you want them). Let’s gush!
Our first bundle is called Autumn Joy. These are the fabrics I will be using in my own quilt that I make with you. I may add in a fussy cut or two if the mood strikes. Fabrics in this bundle are listed below, but if you are interested in the whole bundle, you’ll find it here. There is lots of peach and blush, brown, gold and a toasty camel color too that I’m absolutely in love with.
The second bundle I’ve curated is called Spellbound. This bundle is extra luscious. These are what I always call moody colors. There’s rich maroon or wine, purples, a bit of gold, violets and bluesy shades including aqua and teal.
Please keep in mind that the bundles above are for the prints or colored part of the quilt (the star inside and the star points). It does NOT include the background for your quilt. I have however created special listings for scrappy low volume background bundles as well that will include enough background fabric for the whole quilt, just in case you want.
If you are signed up for the Little Miss Sawtooth Star quilt along newsletter, you’ll receive an email this Wednesday that will direct you to that post with the deep talk about the quilt. Look for that if you are curious or want further details.
Please don’t feel any pressure to purchase one of the fabric bundles from me. This is a great quilt for scraps (except the background), so you may want to shop your own stash. If you do end up purchasing a bundle of fabric, I just want to give you a big hug and say thank you. I really appreciate your support with the fabric shop. It’s so scary to buy that much fabric at once when I’m leaning towards growing slowly, but with the last quilt along we did you made me sell out of bundles on the first day. I was so unbelievably grateful. Fingers crossed you love these bundles as much as you did those.
Thanks again, sweet friends! It’s so nice to have a community of such loving makers.
