Hemisphere Quilt Along


I'm pleased to announce Megan of City Stitches is releasing her first pattern!!! As a young quilter, it's nice to see a fellow young quilter taking the dive. Megan has hosted quilt alongs before but this one is especially exciting as it is her own pattern!

The pattern is available for purchase as a PDF on Aria Lane, and in order to participate, you will need to buy a copy since we will not be providing templates or specific details of the pattern in the Quilt Along posts.

Prizes

Tammy of Marmalade Fabrics is our wonderful Quilt Along Sponsor and will be providing the Grand Prize, as well as two other prizes for me to give away on a whim during the course of the Quilt Along.
