The Fall 2021 TCJ SAL is happening!! We will be making my latest quilt pattern - Rosecity! I am excited to release this pattern and then starting sewing it up with you all immediately! Lots of info is provided below!
The Rosecity SAL
The Rosecity Quilt Pattern is the latest Then Came June Release. I thought up this design concept four years ago but thank goodness I waited! The original idea had the construction of this quilt done in such a different way - the extra four years of experience has greatly paid off. This design is such a fun one. It uses a single block but with different fabrics and color placements, it creates a fun kaleidoscope effect. The pattern is written for an Intermediate quilter. It is not hard but very accurate cutting and seams is essential to this make. I can't wait to make this with you guys!
THE DATES: Monday October 4th, 2021 - Sunday November 21st, 2021
DURATION: 7 Weeks long
QUILT SIZE: Small Throw, finishes at 50" x 62 1/2"
SCHEDULE: The Rosecity Quilt is such a fun one to make. There is a good amount of upfront organization but then it makes sewing this quilt together a breeze. The first two weeks are all about picking your color palette, cutting and then making a test block. The Rosecity Quilt pattern comes with a short tutorial on how to sew together a Rosecity block! Weeks 3 - 6 will be making blocks and the last week we assemble. I believe the most you will be working on this quilt each week is a few hours.
Week 1: We will be walking through how to pick a color palette for the Rosecity Quilt. I will give you guidelines if you feel like you'd like them. I also will provide lots of fun mock ups for inspiration!
Week 2: We will be cutting our fabric, using our fabric labels, getting organized and making a single 1A Block.
Week 3: We will be making our 1A Blocks.
Week 4: We will be making our 1B Blocks.
Week 5: We will be making our 2A Blocks.
Week 6: We will be making our 2B Blocks.
Week 7: We lay it all out and sew our top together!

To be entered to win the weekly prize, you need to post a photo with the prompt assigned to that week (it will be in the newsletter) to the Instagram hashtag #rosecitysal, within that week. Each week starts fresh, so Week 1's post won't count for Week 2's prize. Make sense?
