Celebration 2020 Sew Along for September

Throw size 66 x 72

Welcome to the CELEBRATION 2020 SEW ALONG ! We will be sewing every week during the month of September and there are lots of options!  I wanted to sew a row quilt, so this is where we will start. As you know, all of my quilts are mystery quilts, even I don't know what they will look like when finished, so we are going to be flexible and adapt as we go!

Twin 66 x 96

The throw size and twin size are the same quilt, the twin size just has 2 additional blocks in each row.
The piecing is the same for all of the quilts, we will just add a few more rows for the larger versions. I will be making the king size for my bed.

Queen 84 x 96

The queen size has 2 rows of blocks added to the outside edges. If you prefer, you can repeat the nine patches or leave off the outside border. It's your quilt, mix it up any way you want!

King 106 x 96

The king size has the same blocks as the queen but additional fabric rows are added for possible applique or just using a large scale or favorite fabric. You will need 3 yards of the fabric you plan to use for the extra rows if you add them. Go check your stash, I'll wait.

Okay, now let's get to the details...

WHEN    Every Wednesday in September a new pattern and instructions for the next row will be shared.Check the blog for the post and to download the instructions. Please share your progress and photos to the group Facebook page or on Instagram with tags #Celebration2020sewalong #butterflythreadsquilting

WHY     Because September is my Birthday month and I want to celebrate with my quilting friends all month long! 2020 has been hard in so many ways, lets focus on the positive for a bit!

SUPPLIES NEEDED will vary depending on how scrappy you make your quilt and which size you choose but here's what you need to get started...
