Leading up to Week 1 of the quilt along, you'll need to pick out your fabrics (obviously 😆) and, ideally, get them cut out as well. Check out our blog post HERE for a list of recommended supplies too!

    I saw the glue tips for sale with the pattern and I bought them. But I cannot find in the pattern how to use them.

    I was wondering if there is a reduced size of the sparrow from this pattern? Saw one with borders around the out side, all alone, and it apperared to be smaler?

    Can I buy the required fabrics from you for one of the Sparrow mock ups? I am interested in the last one with the “shale” fabric.

  • Joyce: March 31, 2023

    I am excited to participate in your quilt along. I had previously purchased your adorable pattern and just hadn’t gotten to it! This gives me a perfect excuse to jump in and get it done! Thank you!
