Week 1 (Part I) Broken Stones Sew Along


Hey, hey

Welcome aboard week 1 of the Broken Stones Sew Along!  This sew along is going to run at a faster pace than usual as many of us are at home over the next few weeks.  I will post here on a Monday (Part I) and Thursday (Part II) for the next three weeks.  We will have a catch up week on week 4 and prize giving on the 26th April.

If you are signed up to my newsletter you will receive a round up email on Fridays.

This sew along is designed for everyone to choose the pace they work at.  Choose a small block and larger quilt if you have the time and check in on the blog posts on Mondays and Thursdays.  Or if you are short on time choose a larger block and a smaller quilt receiving the weekly emails so it is one less thing to think about.  The choice is yours!  

To take part in the sew along you will need the Broken Stones Pattern which is available as an PDF instant download.  Get you pattern HERE.  

Kicking off the first week we are going to get our fabric pulls out and post them on Instagram using the hashtag #brokenstonessal.   Be sure to be following me @_lucyengels where I will be posting to Instagram stories over the course of the sew along.

If you need a bit of colour inspiration or not sure which version to make check out my previous blog post HERE.

I am going to be making  Version 2, 24" Baby Quilt using this palette:

  

I will be using Robert Kaufman Kona Solids: A - Grellow & Tiger Lily, A (centre block) - Petal, B - White, C - Chalkboard, D - Gumdrop, E & F - Oyster (in lieu of a pale yellow as I can't get to my studio..)   The colour placement in this block changes the overall look of the design again. Version 3, if you will.

To achieve this look I switched up the A colour on the bottom right corner of the block which you can see here is the orange.  You would make eight flying geese (Step 2. x 2) using C and A (orange) which would be enough for four blocks.  And cut 1 x A1 size fabric (orange) piece sub cut and pieced according to this block layout.  For the centre you would cut A2 & A3 in pale pink. I'm looking forward to seeing all your colour combos!

If you have any questions or need help with any part of your quilt making process please email me at info@lucyengels.com.

Happy Quilting!
