ANNOUNCING: Christa's Quilt-Along

I will be participating in this Quilt-Along, so thought I would share it with you as well!  This should be a fun one to give it a shot!

Christa’s Quilt Along 6.0 – String of Pearls Introduction

Fabric Requirements
  • 12 chubby eighths of colorful prints – a chubby eighth measures approximately 9″ x 20″ or half of a fat quarter.
  • 1.5 yards solid black – Christa is using Kona Pepper.
  • 2.5 yards grey or neutral background – Christa is using Kona Medium Grey.
  • 4 yards for backing (or lots of scraps and leftover pieces).
  • Piece of batting that measures at least 70″ x 70″.
Quilt Along Schedule – links will be active at the completion of each step:
Please note, this time around Christa will go two weeks in between each step. She’d like to give everyone plenty of time to work at their own pace.
