Rin Along ++ Announcement

Looking for a fun and very relaxed quilt along to participate in while waiting for the Magnolia Mystery Quilt-along to start?

Cindy from Hyacinth Quilt Designs and myself are hosting a Rin Along for the Rin quilt pattern by Carolyn Friedlander over the next 2 months.


Both Cindy and I fell in love with the Rin quilt design and had independently put it on our to-make list in 2017.  We decided to make the Rin quilt together and thought that maybe some of you would like to join in.  

We are going to keep this quilt along very casual and low stress, here is our tentative schedule:


Wednesday May 3rd (today) - announce quilt along  

Wednesday May 17th - official start to the quilt along
Wednesday July 5th - end to the quilt along with parade and prizes

Share your progress on social media using the hastag #RinAlong



To be part of the parade at the end of the quilt along, you only need to have one block made (just appliqued, it does not even need to be quilted).  There will be prizes!  (We are still getting them finalized and will announce them in a bit.)

You can get a copy of the Rin pattern through Carolyn Friedlander's shop and Carolyn has been generous to offer quilt along participants a discount 20% discount for the pattern using the code RinQAL.  

I have never done needle turned applique and am excited to be learning a new skill and making a quilt just for fun.  My plan is to make 3 quilt blocks, quilt them individually, and hang them on my wall in my bedroom as art. 

We hope you decide to join in!

I'm linking up with Let's Be Social at Sew Fresh Quilts.

  4. Looking forward to seeing your progress. I just can't get excited about working with applique, but I enjoy seeing it in other's projects.

  5. This is a great idea Cheryl! I've always wanted to learn to do needle-turn applique and I like the low pressure 'do only 1 block' plan - makes it seem much more doable for me. :) I'm off to check out the pattern!

  7. I might pass this on to some of my friends who applique, it's beautiful but I don't like doing it.

  8. That sounds like a fun project. I love the look of needle turned applique. Currently for my hand project I am limiting myself to knitting only, but I am looking forward to seeing your minis.

  14. Oh, this sounds like so much fun but I'll be watching from the sidelines, like so many other QALs this year. We have some major happenings going on in our household which are going to prevent me from participating in a lot over the next several months but it will be fun to watch.

  16. It would be lovely to join in but alas I'm just too busy just now on top of which I'm catching up and getting organised and resurrecting a UFO. After which I will be ready for the Magnolia Mystery Quilt, so exciting.
