How the Sew Along Will Work
First of all, you do NOT need to make all the patterns! (though, cudos to you if you do!!)
This Sew Along is like a choose your own adventure – you just make the blocks you want to and forget the rest. And it isn’t just about making a quilt…. you can make a block and turn it into a cushion, make a few and make a table runner, whatever you like.
This sew along is so that all of us who have wanted to make one (or more) of Elizabeth Hartman’s animal patterns can make them and we can all support and cheer you along!
I am picking this sew along up as of May 5th 2018 so we are going to pick up with the start of the Greenhouse pattern (see below for all the patterns and blocks we are going to do)
As we go along I will show you some of the blocks I made as part of the #peacefulplanetSAL I hosted last year. I am really looking forward to making blocks from all these new extra patterns!
There are a few prizes along the way (yay!) so read on to find out how you will be eligible for them (there are a few slight changes from before, so please read carefully)
TO BE IN THE RUNNING FOR THE MONTHLY PRIZE (May 5th to June 6th blocks):
MAKE A BLOCK : make one of the blocks that we are doing from the 5th May to the 6th June and post it on Instagram between 12:01am 5 June and 11:59pm 9 June 2018
TO BE IN THE RUNNING FOR A GRAND PRIZE:
MAKE A FINISHED PROJECT : Pick the block(s) you’d like to make from one or more of the Elizabeth Hartman patterns or an entire pattern that we are doing and make a quilt or your own project. You will need to post one photo of each of the individual blocks in your project between 12:01am 3 January and 11:59pm 9 June 2018. You will then need to post a photo of your finished quilt top (it doesn’t need to be quilted or bound), cushion, bag, mini quilt, table runner between 12:01am 3 January and 11:59pm 9 June 2018. Important: Your entered project cannot include any other animal blocks by another designer. They can include traditional patchwork blocks, setting blocks, improv piecing, words, etc. but the animals must be by Elizabeth Hartman.
