Mystery Quilt Along with Sulky
Follow along week by week as we unveil a new quilt block tutorial. At the end of three weeks, you’ll have enough blocks sewn to create our 2023 Sulky Mystery Quilt!
Each week, you’ll learn how to construct a new quilt block with extensive video instruction; then, we’ll tell you how many of that block to make while you wait for the next tutorial to drop into your inbox.
Ashley Hough, designer and instructor for National Quilters Circle and other publications, will show you every step of the way.
In the final fourth week, you’ll compile the blocks into a beautiful quilt that measures 76″ square.
You’ll also learn several variations for other projects to make using the different Blocks and quilt pattern with BONUS TUTORIALS!
HOW THE QUILT ALONG WORKS
Once you register, you’ll receive a supply list to gather your fabrics and materials for the Lessons within the Quilt Along. We also have a limited number of kits available that contain the fabrics for the quilt top and Sulky Threads for construction & quilting.
The quilt along kit also has optional add-ons for Paper Solvy and Quilt Backing, should you need that for your project. You’ll learn all about the benefits of using Paper Solvy for FPP (foundation paper piecing) projects, and we’ve bundled all the sheets you need into one convenient package at a special price for the Quilt Along! The backing fabric coordinates with the front fabrics (very limited stock of backing fabric is available).
We’ll send you an email to notify you when each block tutorial is ready for viewing (each Friday in October). With video instruction, written steps with photographs, and a convenient kit option, this Quilt-Along will be “sew” much fun!
Plus, once you register you’ll have access to our Mystery Quilt-Along Community Page, where you can interact with other participants, share your photos and ask your questions.
