Welcome to the Interwoven Quilt Along!
I'm so excited you're here!
.
.
We will spend the next 8 weeks creating an Interwoven Quilt top. I'll be sharing tips, tricks and tons of amazing prizes along the way! Did I mention that there are over 500 quilters signed up from around the world?! How cool is that!
.

How to Participate:

  • Sign up for the Quilt Along here. I'll be sending weekly emails and I want to make sure you stay in the loop!

Have you read the story about Interwoven? I designed this quilt as a gift for my husband.  Read about the design, and see examples by my amazing pattern testers here

Here is the schedule for the Quilt Along. Note which version you're making (Modern/Traditional), as well as the size. The schedule is slightly different for each variation. 
.

Okay! Now for the fun part: this week, we are planning and choosing our fabrics. As you know there are two versions of this quilt: Traditional (2 colors) or Modern (multicolor). My original design was two colors (Robert Kaufman Kona Doeskin and Snow), and I LOVE the aesthetic that this quilt has. 
.
.
However, the Modern version has really taken off! It really seems to be the favorite, and I'm okay with that! For this version, it's really fun to play with color! I recommend choosing 1-3 colors, then expanding on those shades from there.
.
.
Remember, the baby size Modern version calls for 9 colors and the throw size calls for 11. If you want to use less colors, but still create a Modern version, you can do that too! Here are some examples:

I also glean LOTS of inspiration from Pinterest. I have a Color Palette board here, that should help spark some ideas!
There are several shops carrying bundles, too!

Shops carrying Interwoven Bundles:

Cottoneer

Beautifully Mended Fabrics

Sewtopia (they also have a discounted Stripology ruler using the code LoAndBehold!)

I went back and forth about the colors I was going to use for my quilt! Initially, I was planning on doing another two-color Traditional version, then I started thinking...I don't have a  Valentines day quilt! So I changed my mind to this:
..
.
.
..
.
The colors are all Kona by Robert Kaufman. From top to bottom, they are: Lingerie, Peach, Primrose, Melon, Camellia, Valentine, Blush Pink, Foxglove, Plum, Bordeaux and Berry. I love these colors so much!

This week, our prize is sponsored by Creative Grids. I've been talking about it for a while now, but ya'll, their Stripology ruler is a GAME CHANGER! It saves so much time, especially with this pattern. You can find the ruler on Amazon here.
.
.
I have two of these rulers to give away! Enter to win by posting a photo of your fabric pull to Instagram and use the hashtag #interwovenqal. You have until Sunday night to post your photo, and winners will be chosen on Monday, Feb. 4th.

Next week we'll be cutting our strips and testing our seam allowances! I'll also have a video tutorial of how I use my Stripology ruler. Seriously...prepare to be amazed!
.
Alright ya'll, happy planning! I'll see you next week!
