Prairie Sew Along - Week One!!

Welcome to week one of the 
Sew Along!
Join me here each week 
when I will be doing tutorials
 on the blocks for the quilt.

Of course because we are all sewing 
from all around the world  
we all have different time zones...
But I will be posting each Monday 
right here on my blog 
and you can follow my tutorials 
any time each week that 
 is convenient for you.

We are making the 
Prairie Meadow Quilt
68" x 85"
I've been sew excited to begin...
This is going to be fun!!

The quilt is made with my newest fabric
 collection called Prairie...

I hope that you all have all 
received your 
fabric kits by now...
 and that we are all ready to begin!!

If you still need one ...
just do a quick google search for 
"Prairie Meadow Quilt Kit"
to find shops who still have some left.

We are also using the
Prairie Meadow
Sew Simple Shapes

I have already posted the
 post which details all of the supplies
 for the sew along and how it works.
I have also given the link there 
for the free PDF Download 
of the Sew Along Guide

to download the sew along guide.

As per the sew along guide 
cutting instructions
 you should have everything for your
  Block One 
 all cut and ready to go!

As per usual for week one in my 
Sew Simple Shape Sew Alongs

I'm so excited to get started with this sew along! I love the fabrics and the block designs for this quilt. Needle turn applique has always been my favorite, but I'm trying your technique for this quilt. I think I'm going to enjoy it immensely.
Thank you for the wonderful designs!
