Stitch Pink 2021 Community Slowalong

#communityslowalong #swlstitchpink2021

We are taking some of the best of the 2020 Stitch Pink blocks (picture is of the 2020 quilt) and adding in some of our own 6.5″ blocks as well…. this will give us a wonderful sampler style quilt that will be truly unique and YOU!

We will be using a limited palette from the Sincerely Yours fabric for our Community Stitch Pink kits and as this fabric collection has been delayed, we will be starting on the 1st November. You are welcome to join in using any fabrics from your stash you would like!

This is going to be a fun and relaxed sewalong that starts on the 1st November and will go until late January 2022.

Head to our online shop (Aussies and New Zealand only sorry) to purchase your quilt kit.

Or this one would also be amazing as a scrappy project from your stash!

We will be sending out emails on Mondays as we make 13 of the 12.5″ blocks from 2020 and add in twelve 6.5″ blocks in a fun setting to give you a unique quilt!

Sign up for the Community Slowalong here

You can sign up anytime (even after the 1st November)… you will be emailed all the weeks that you may have missed…. this is a relaxed sewalong… just join in and catch up where you are able.

And along the way, we will be meeting some new people, sharing some information about Breast Cancer Awareness and maybe even having a few prizes!
