We are back! We are hosting a new SAL this winter and we are excited to be sewing alongside our community! This blogpost will provide you with all the basic info needed for the SAL.
The Goldie Quilt SAL!
The Goldie Quilt Pattern is the latest Then Came June release. The Goldie Quilt is a Fat Quarter friendly yet scrappy inspired pattern. The pattern uses classic quilting techniques - Half Square Triangles, 9 Patches and Strip Piecing to create my ode to the Bear Paw design. This quilt pattern is such a fun one to use when playing with color. You can dive into your FQ stash or grab a kit and let's sew together!
THE DATES: Friday January 27th - Friday March 24th
DURATION: 8 Weeks
QUILT SIZE: Throw Size 63" x 63"
SCHEDULE: We are going to sew the Goldie quilt top together over the course of 8 weeks. The first two weeks are about picking our fabric, inspiration and cutting. Weeks 3 - 7 we will be sewing our components, our blocks and the final week we are assembling our quilt top! There are no catch up weeks accounted for in the schedule but I think once we get into a flow, it will be easy to stay on track.
Week 1: We will be chatting color palettes and different ideas on how to make the Goldie quilt. I will be providing a lot of mock ups and ideas for you!
Week 2: We are cutting all of our fabrics out and getting organized!
Week 3: We are sewing our 9 Patch Cornerstones which make the center of every block and are in our sashing. Once these are made, we are doing a single Goldie block to get everyone up to speed on how these blocks come together.
Week 4: Sewing 2 Goldie Blocks
Week 5: Sewing 2 Goldie Blocks
Week 6: Sewing 2 Goldie Blocks
Week 7: Sewing 2 Goldie Blocks
Week 8: We are making our Long Sashing Pieces and assembling our quilt top!

Goldie Quilt Kits - Available in our Shop!
We have several Goldie quilt kits available for purchase in our shop! The Goldie Electric Waves Kit is what I am making for the SAL. A fun mix of blues for the blocks and then each block has a different background fabric using golds to acid limes. It's going to be bright and crazy and I am excited! Also any 20 piece FQ Bundle would work well and then grab some background fabric!
I am excited this year to be the one providing the weekly prizes! And since we are all quilters here, we LOVE fabric. And you know what I love to do with fabric? CURATE IT! So each week someone will get an opportunity to win a FQ Bundle curated by me! You get to let me know a color palette idea, if you want solids, prints or a mix and I will make something as a surprise according to your color hopes!
I am happy to share that Emily of So Sunny Quilts is providing FREE longarm quilting to one lucky winner on their finished Goldie Quilt!
