Modern Pearls Quilt Along - Week One (and FREE pattern!)

Welcome to the start of the Modern Pearls Quilt-Along! I'm excited that we can have fun sewing together.

Here's a quick run-down:

Schedule
It'll be a fast 4 weeks, but I have a feeling many of you will be able to get it done in a week or two!  Every Monday I'll put up a new blog post with the week's homework, and the question-of-the-week.  
3/23 - Decide on fabric
3/30 - Cut out your quilt.  Sew strips.
4/6 - Sew 9-patches
4/13 - Sew quilt top together

Theme
This is going to be super relaxed and fun.  There may or may not be prizes. (I don't know yet!) But I want to encourage you to post progress photos as you go. I'll come up with a few fun, interactive questions that you can answer (if you want) when you post your photos.  These help us get to know each other!

Hashtag
Don't forget to use 2 different hashtags when you post your progress pictures:
#modernpearlsquiltalong
#twocolorquilt

Other hashtags you can use (so other quilters can find you)
#irishchainquilt
#modernpearlsquilt

Pattern

  1. We are calling this our "social distancing" quilt, since I'm making mine in Utah, and my daughter-in-law is making hers in Ohio - this will help bring us together again. Material ordered, and on it's way, can't wait to get started, thanks for this cute idea!!
