Let Freedom Ring Quilt Along


Hi there! I am so glad you stopped by! I wanted to officially announce the Let Freedom Ring Quilt Along today! I am so very excited about this quilt!  This quilt has been a labor of love, and I can't wait to start this quilt along with you! 


Let's go over all the details of this quilt along! 

1. This is a ten month quilt along.  We will be doing one row a month and then an additional month for finishing.  I know that may seem like a long time, but I didn't want to rush this quilt!  I want you to enjoy sewing it together and I wanted it to be something you look forward to monthly. 

Here are the scheduled dates: 
  • May 6 - picking fabric and tools. Video HERE
  • May 20- kick off, row 1
  • June 17 - row 2
  • July 15 - row 3
  • August 19 - row 4
  • September 16 - row 5
  • October 21 - row 6
  • November 18 - row 7
  • December 16 - row 8
  • January 15 - row 9
  • February 20 - finish


2. The pattern is called "Let Freedom Ring".  The fabric I used for this quilt is called Fireworks and Freedom, by Bella Blvd for Riley Blake Designs.  

This pattern is a row quilt, and I would definitely recommend this pattern for an experienced quilter.  Don't let that scare you, there are blocks that are very beginner friendly, and blocks that are more advanced.  All blocks are pieced using traditional piecing techniques.  No paper piecing or appliqué.  

Want to participate, but you are a beginner quilter?  You still can!  You can easily make a table runner using one of the rows, or an entire quilt just repeating the same block! 

Beginner friendly rows: 
Row 1
Row 3
Row 5

The pattern has nine rows, and twelve blocks.  The pattern is fully illustrated and has step by step instructions.  You can purchase a paper pattern or a digital PDF file.  

Here is a list of shops that have ordered patterns and some also have fabric available.

  4. Last week I ordered the Let Freedom Ring pattern from MSQ not knowing about the QAL. I received notice the pattern is on the way this morning. Until it gets here I'm watching the instructional video. It's a great way to prep for the row by row quilt.
