Camden Road Quilt Along


The Camden Road Quilt Along is being hosted by Cindy of Hyacinth Quilt Designs and myself and will run from January 28th - March 24th, 2020.  The Camden Road pattern contains instructions for baby, lap, and twin sizes and you can make any size you would like during the QAL.

Post on social media with #CamdenRoadQAL to share your progress with the other quilters.

How many blocks you should aim to complete each week depends on the quilt size you are making, we will have 5 weeks of block making, followed by 3 weeks to catch up on blocks and sew the quilt top together.

You do not have to follow the number of blocks per week, if you prefer you could make all of the flying geese one week, the corner units another week, etc.  The only link-up for prizes will be at the end of the quilt along with the quilt top and/or finished quilt 


Baby size - 9 blocks - aim for 2 blocks/week
Lap size - 20 blocks - aim for 4 blocks/week
Twin size - 30 blocks - aim for 6 blocks/week

Pattern

The Camden Road pattern is available in the Meadow Mist Designs pattern shop for 25% through midnight EST January 28th using the code CAMDENROAD.  The code will only work on the Camden Road pattern and only in my shop (not on Etsy).
