Just A Tree Quilt Along

#justatreeQAL

Join us for Just a Tree Quilt Along – a fun, quick sewalong where you will make this cute wallhanging (or upscale it to make a full quilt!)

Raylee from Sunflower Stitcheries and Quilting is joining in as a co-host and will be providing some fun stitchery suggestions as well as a quilting plan during our sewalong.

Are you going to make it in Christmas colours, spring or autumn colours…. or maybe in your favourite team colours?

This will be a fun, short sewalong that anyone can join in with.

How to Join In

We will send out an email each Monday morning (Aussie time) with what to do for the week.

You can sign up for the quilt along HERE. You will receive the free pattern once you have signed up.

Note: This will sign you up for my twice a month newsletters and if you aren’t already signed up to receive those, you will get a sequence of 5 emails telling you a bit more about Said With Love too.

To get all the stitchery suggestions and quilting layouts from Raylee you will also need to sign up HERE for those.

To show your progress each week you can join our Facebook Sewing Group (ask to join here – please don’t forget to answer ALL the member questions!) and then you can post your pictures there. And see what everyone else is doing and give them support!

And / Or you can post on Instagram and use the hashtags
