Summer Quilt Along Q & A

Filed under: Quilting — quiltcetera @ 5:00 am
Tags:

Hi ya’!
There have been many questions about the Summer Stars Sampler Quilt Along. Many, many questions. 🙂 That is the reason for this incredibly, informative post which hopefully will clear up all questions, and concerns you may have!

1)Q. Where can I buy a kit for this quilt?
A. There are NO kits available for this quilt. The Fat Quarter Shop carries this specific fabric line, but they are unable to kit these. You must download the fabric requirements and shop for each fabric individually.

2) Q. Is this quilt along free?
A. Yes! These free patterns will be available until the end of September!

3) Q. May I use fabrics from my stash for this quilt?
A. Of course! I would love to see your version of this quilt!!

4) Q. Any chance we will cut cutting instructions beforehand so we can be ready to go on July 6th?
A. Nope! 🙂

5) Q. Will a beginner be able to handle it, or would this be considered an intermediate or higher project?
A. I would consider this quilt to be intermediate. The good news is, that I have also planned a beginner friendly version, and you can find more info in yesterday’s post. 🙂

6) Q. When the fabric requirements say 1/4 yard, will a Fat Quarter work or does it need to be a width of fabric cut?
A. Excellent question! A fat quarter will work perfectly.

Thanks to all of you for your questions! Please leave any other questions you may have and I will be happy to answer ASAP!

Quilty Hugs,
Bradie
