The beautiful Judie's Quilt Album fabrics have arrived from Marcus Fabrics and the girls at the shop have been busy cutting and shipping the first fabric packet for my Emilie Elizabeth block of the month offered by In Between Stitches. There are a few more openings available. All of the fabric for the first month will create this beautiful 18" center for your quilt.
The fabrics are identical to this picture. There's no guessing what fabric goes where, you can see it all right here.
Throughout the program, I will be posting tutorials to help you through the process. I think my first tutorial will be the flange around the center block. It isn't hard, so don't be worried or intimidated. Just take it step by step, month by month and at the end of the program you will have a beautiful, heirloom quilt.
Along this journey you will learn a lot. This quilt is made from quilting components. You will be making flying geese, parallel geese, double flying geese, half-square triangles, square in a square, and a square in a triangle. You will learn precision and patience. This isn't a quilt you will rush through. Take time and enjoy the process.
I will create a tab at the top of the blog so you can refer to it easily and not have to wade through pages of my ramblings. Here's a Smilebox that I created so you can watch Emilie Elizabeth take shape.
