Rose in Bloom Quilt Along (Blocks 1-6)
Just checking in to see how everyone is doing with the Rose in Bloom quilt along! We’re just beginning Month 6 (also Block 6) and giving away some fabulous prizes along the way.
The Rose in Bloom Quilt
I designed the Rose in Bloom quilt as part of the Love Note fabric collection. I’d never designed a sampler or block of the month quilt before, so I teamed up with Fat Quarter Shop to write the Rose in Bloom book. They were so great to work with and I’m really proud on how the book turned out. I had so much fun making the quilt – I even used the layout for my 6″ Sewcialite sampler blocks found here. Here’s the full Rose in Bloom quilt in Love Note fabric:
The Quilt Along
Even though the official Rose in Bloom quilt along has already begun, you can join in any time, of course! The schedule is set at deliberate enough of a pace that you could catch up if you really wanted to. (The complete quilt along schedule/details are found here.) And good news – this block of the month program is made to accommodate any skill beginner skill level. Here’s a quick look at the blocks made so far:
Like any great quilt along, there are prizes! Each month, all you have to do is make the assigned block, take a photo, and post to social media with the hashtag #RoseinBloomQAL. (Don’t forget to check the full schedule posted here.) May’s prize was a fat eighth bundle of Love Note fabric (congrats Jamie C.!), and June’s will be a fat quarter bundle of Flower Pot fabric. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments. Best of luck to you all!

I am working on the Rose in Bloom QAL and love just looking at the fabric as I work on each block. Making small blocks is challenging for me but I can tell my skills are improving. Thanks for such beautiful fabric and such a beautiful quilt. Can’t wait to see the finished quilt!

I am loving these blocks, and am considering beginning another set in a different fabric line if I can squeeze the time in for them; I just know this quilt would look awesome in multiple colorways!

These are all breathtaking! I wonder if I can squeeze in yet another project?! 😉 thank you for the beautiful patterns and the opportunity to win some sweet fabrics!

I finally received my kit so need to do some catching up but just love this pattern. I love your patterns and this fabric. It is gorgeous and appreciate that opportunity to win some of your new fabric design.

Oh wow, I totally forgot to post my blocks! I’ll do that ASAP! I finally caught up with the last two months this week. I’m loving this quilt – Eight Cousins and Rose In Bloom were two of my favorite Louisa May Alcott books, so I knew as soon as I heard about Love Note and the quilt that I had to have it! 🥰

I sewed month 6 and I’m loving this block of the month. The book is beautiful!

I have enjoyed doing this quilt along. It is extremely challenging with all of the directional fabrics.
I would love to see the rest of the blocks that everyone has done! It seems like very few are posting now.
