Bestie Quilt Along - Details

January 3, 2013

Besties are great, aren't they!?!  Way back when, I had a brilliant idea of having identical Bestie quilts, you know so that you can snuggle "with your Bestie" wherever you are!  

Cue the music for the introduction of the Bestie Quilt Along (QAL for short!).

I, along with my quilting Besties Jana and Jackie are hosting a Bestie Quilt Along- are you interested!?!  The details are quite simple.  Select fabric and a quilt pattern with your Bestie, and make identical quilts!  For this QAL, Jana, Jackie, and I will be using Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt, and the Swoon Quilt Pattern by Camille Roskelley.  The best part, is that there isn't a rigid QAL schedule that you need to keep up with, just sew at your pace and know that others are rooting for you to finish.  

Feel free to use the fabric and pattern that we're using, or come up with your own combination- the choice is totally up to you!  Need some help?  What about Simply Color by V and Co. paired with In Color Order's Plus Quilt?  Or Flutter by The Quilted Fish paired with Oh, Kaye (or Fantastic-O Fat Fun) by Threaded Pear Studio? Or Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt paired with Stitched in Color's Scrap Attack Triangle Quilt?

I'd love to hear if you're interested in joining; simply leave a comment below and I'll work on setting up a Flickr Group, so that we can share progress photos!  :)


  1. Sounds like fun! I wish I could join in! ;-) I will have fun watching you guys. Great fabric and great pattern choices!

  2. This is wonderful! Is it OK if I make a "Swoon" but in different fabrics? If that's OK, I'm in!! :)


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
