Welcome to week 2 of the barn door quilt-a-long!
Confession time: it occurred to me last week that there is no reason in the world to write “quilt-a-long” rather than quilt along. So if you see that change soon you’ll know why. (English major fail.)
This week we’re going to sew the top rows (1-8). Don’t worry if you’re behind! If you’re able to focus a few good hours on this project you’ll have no trouble catching up. You may have seen hints on Instagram (@sarahschraw / #barndoorqal) that I am actually almost done with my quilt top. Once you get rolling it truly does come together fast. And good news: all the math is working perfectly!
There’s not a lot of new information this week. Last week’s assembly chart is all you need for the first 3 weeks of the quilt along. (You can reference the week 1 post here). Here is how your quilt will look at the end of week 2:
After some good email discussions with a couple of you I decided a little more instruction on the pinning step might be helpful! I’m going to do that under a separate post later this morning (Lord willing and the creek don’t rise).
Now, the link up. I’d love to see your progress, even if it’s still just a pile of fabric!
Link up by clicking below. I’ll leave the link open one week (until January 20).
