Quilt alongs provide a unique opportunity to work at your own pace while also being part of a quilting group. Whether its buying a kit and everyone making the same project or everyone using the same pattern with fabric from their stash so each finished piece is unique; there’s no denying it’s a fun experience.
If you’ve lost your bug they can also provide great motivation to get back into your craft room and pick up a project. For anyone that enjoys a variety of needlework arts, these type of groups also exist for cross stitch, knitting and crochet. If you’re not sure where to find them, check with your local craft store.
Staff here at Star Creations participated in two quilt alongs in 2020, our own block of the month program to create a beautiful 12-block all season sampler and the Moda Stitch Pink 2020 to raise awareness for breast cancer. The Stitch Pink 2020 was a block a day for the month of October with the final day being left for assembly. This sampler was made using fabrics from the Moda Grunge collection.

We’re going to change it up a little for 2021 and replace our block of the month with Pot Holder/Oven Mitt of the month. These themed pieces will be great seasonal decor for your kitchen or can be the perfect housewarming gift. More details on this program to follow!
