Schedule and Progress:

To make this sew along accessible for everyone, we've designed it to be achievable on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Sewing on average 6.2 squares per day over the next 365 days, or the equivalent per week or month, ensures that you can pace yourself according to your schedule and preference.

Three Ways to Sew:

Choose your own adventure! This sew along offers flexibility to cater to different skill levels and preferences:

  1. Beginner's Bliss: Using Quilters Grid
    • The easiest method, thanks to the quilters grid, which simplifies the process for you.
    • No need to worry about intricate details; the grid does the heavy lifting.
    • Monthly 'live' video check-ins will guide you through the process.
  2. Advanced Challenge: Traditional Sewing
    • Dive into the challenge of sewing squares together with a quarter-inch seam as usual.
    • Ideal for those seeking a more intricate and hands-on experience.
  3. Try Something New: Hand Sewing with EPP
    • Experience the traditional charm of hand-sewn quilts using English Paper Piecing (EPP).
    • Perfect for those who enjoy crafting on the move or in front of the TV.
