Grace in the Meadow QAL registration
Do you want to focus on Biblical truths in the lead up to Easter and make a beautiful quilt? I am excited to announce the Grace in the Meadow quilt along, which begins on February 17th, the first day of Lent, and runs until Easter Sunday (April 4th).
Each day of the QAL, except Sundays, I'll share a devotion to help us reflect on our salvation - the need for it, the hope we find in Jesus, our response to the gift God offers us and the result of salvation. It's my prayer that this will be a season of preparing our hearts to fully appreciate all that Good Friday and Easter Sunday mean for us.
Along the way, I'll release instructions for the blocks in my new Spring Meadow quilt pattern. Spring Meadow finishes at 72" square and includes 40 blocks for the 40 days of Lent. There are two options, both of which include traditional piecing and paper piecing for the pinwheel blocks. Both options are included when you register for the quilt along.
The first option uses fusible machine applique for the flower blocks, as shown in the first image. The second option uses hand embroidery for the flower blocks as shown in the second image (though with gorgeous colours, of course!).
I'll be sharing lots of tips and tricks as we make our Spring Meadow quilts. So if you're not really comfortable with paper piecing or fusible applique or embroidery, don't let that prevent you from joining in the fun. I'll be walking you through how I do it all - though you should know that my emphasis has always been more on enjoying the process than on perfection 😊
