Back to School Party Preparations

Quiltmaker is having a Back to School Party and you’re invited! Come sew with us!

Each weekday from Sept. 8 to 16, please join us here on Quilty Pleasures for a free quilt pattern in bite-size morsels, tips and techniques and giveaways galore!

The idea is to celebrate fall with a fun, easy new project. You’ll find camaraderie, guidance and inspiration each day as we work on the quilt together. The quilt is called Dozens of Daisies; it was designed by Joanie Holton and Melanie Greseth of TailorMade by Design.

We knew you’d need some time to gather sewing supplies so today we’re sharing a diagram and photos of Dozens of Daisies along with the yardage requirements. The grayscale quilt diagram below is keyed to the fabrics in the yardage further down.

We’ll give you the first step of construction on Thursday, Sept. 8. During the party you’ll also get to meet our team of reader-sewers, and we’ll have daily doses of learning. Plan to take photos of your quilt along the way so that we can share them with everyone and multiply the fun. I’ll see you at the party!
