It’s finally here! On Monday, March 10, we are starting the Trinket Quilt sew along with Alison Glass. If you haven’t signed up yet, this is one you won’t want to miss. Alison has organized ten weeks of sewing: a block per day (weekdays only) for eight weeks, then two weeks to sew it all together. There are tons of weekly prizes, sponsor shop specials…even a “finisher” prize for EVERYONE who completes their top! Let’s talk details, schedule **fabric SALE & GIVEAWAYS!** and joining in the fun…
The Trinket pattern is an easy modern sampler quilt consisting of 40 paper foundation pieced blocks set with alternating squares of solid fabric. For the design of my quilt, I chose a rainbow of colors in solids and prints for the pieced blocks and a pretty butterfly print from Art Gallery Fabrics for the setting squares. <<click here to buy kit>>
Alison has also shared some inspiring options on instagram…this design is perfect for adding your own creative spin to the layout, setting squares, and size/shape of the quilt. <<click here to buy just the pattern>>
Now you have your pattern and fabric ready, you’ve checked out the “how to” of foundation paper piecing, we are ready to sew! Be sure and sign up for the Sew Along on Alison’s website. This makes you eligible for weekly prizes as well as an enamel pin that everyone who completes a quilt top will receive at the end. Wahoo! that’s a prize for EVERYONE! <<click here to sign up>>
This is an instagram centered sew along. You’ll post pictures of your progress and daily block on IG for chances to win fabulous giveaways. Did I mention I’m a sponsor? you might win a $50 shopping spree here in my shop! Be sure and follow me, @colorgirlquilts and Alison, @alisonglass to keep up. When you share your blocks, add #trinketsal to your captions. This way, we can all find our fellow Trinket sewists and cheer each other on.
I am so happy you are here! Thanks for joining me in making this cute quilt…I can’t wait to see yours.
