Sew Out Loud! Quilt Along

Wersję polską zamieszczę jak tylko wrócę z urlopu:) Przepraszam z góry za jej brak!
EDIT: u Kirie jest polska wersja postu.

Hello everybody! Me and Kirie (Joanna) from Shape Moth wanted to organize together some blog event. After long planning, finding talented designers and wonderful sponsors we can present you Sew Out Loud Quilt Along:


Eleven bloggers will create a unique 12" block (12.5" unfinished).
For the 12th block we will make a contest, so you will be our 12th designer!
There will be fabulous prizes to win in the contest and to spice up the competition, the incredibly talented judge will choose the grand winner - stay tuned for the details!

The theme of the QAL is Sew Out Loud {quilters' wordplay}.
Each of the quilt blocks presented by the designers will be related to sewing and words (egg. objects/scene connected with sewing, blocks sewn with wordy fabrics, pieced words connected with sewing, etc.). Fat Quarter Shop generously offered to sponsor fabrics for making tutorials during QAL!

Each week you'll find the block instructions available on designer's blog. Within 2,5 month you will be able to complete the whole quilt top.

Here is the schedule for Sew Out Loud QAL. On the respective date, you will be able to find the block tutorial on the specified blog. You can also check back here anytime, to find links to the tutorials!
