I am excited to announce my third Sew Along!
All the Diagonals was my first pattern – released in 2020 just shortly after the pandemic hit. It might have been the best time for a Sew Along. A great chance to get our minds off how things were back then. But either I was too stressed out myself or I just didn’t consider it. As I am now launching my first translation into German, this is a great chance to remedy the missing Sew Along!
I asked you all what kind of a Sew Along you preferred and the vote was for a relaxed and easygoing one. And here you have it :)
We will follow a leisurely schedule. Though you can also sew faster if that is your jam. All the details are below.
There will be prizes, so read to the end :)
All the Diagonals is my quilty take on the mathematical question called „Polygon Division Problem“:
As hexagons are already a very common quilt block form, I decided on using a heptagon. And the answer for this seven-sided polygon is: 42. You might notice that this number is also famous elsewhere :)
You will need the All the Diagonals pattern from my shop where you can also find lots more details and additional pictures. The English version is already available. The German version will release ~ August 26.
But you can already pre-order the German version. Until the final release you will receive a partial file including the basic information, the mock-ups, and all coloring sheets so that you can start planning your quilt. Once the pattern releases, you will automatically receive an email with a link to download the full file.
The price is 12$ but there will be a special 20% discount code for subscribers to the Sew Along newsletter.
The All the Diagonals Sew Along will be seven weeks long. You will find a weekly post here on my blog. I will also send a newsletter reminder so you can’t miss anything! Yet another reason to sign up ;)
