I am so excited to share that I am going to be hosting my first ever quilt along! YAY! My Sienna Burst Quilt Pattern is one of my most popular patterns and it happens to be my most "involved" one making it the BEST pattern to break down week by week.
The Sienna Burst Quilt Pattern is a fun Intermediate skilled pattern. It is block based and a mix and match FQ quilt that finishes at 68" x 68". You can size up and down as you see fit though if you want to make a different size.
The quilt along will be carefree and pretty casual as it is the first one I have ever hosted! (Wish me luck!) I will be hosting the quilt along through a Newsletter, a few blogposts and Instagram.
The Sienna star block has a couple different techniques. The ever amazing half square triangle (HST) and it's more difficult sister block the half rectangle triangle (HRT). A quilt along is the perfect place to help break down these techniques and answer questions along the way!
I am rounding up some prizes to share along the way and I can't wait to share what is in store. Be sure to post your progress on social media with the #siennaburstqal hashtag.
