SOLD OUT - Postcard from Sweden Quilt Stitch Along

Join us as we make the Postcard from Sweden Quilt together! We'll share best practices, tools, and tips to stay organized and precise so you end up with a gorgeous throw-sized quilt! 

This quilt design was inspired by a postcard set by Tom Frazier Kelli Liddle of Jeli Quilts found in IKEA. She says, “The colors just pulled me in and I set out to make my own quilt version.” This pattern is how she interpreted the postcard into a quilt and is her own original work. 

This free pattern is a stunner but we learned a lot along the way as we made it and we want to share our tips with you! 

We used Ruby & Bee solids for our version but you are welcome to use the Kona solids that the pattern calls for, if you prefer.
We love the softness of the Ruby & Bee solids and you can see from our sample, the color saturation can't be beat. We will have fat quarter bundles available that work perfectly with the pattern, should you choose to make it with our selections.
You can also work this up in prints that read as solids for a textured vibe!

You will have the option to make one of two quilt sizes: 48" x 60" or 60" x 75"

During the sew along, we'll share tips, tools and best practices so you don't lose track of your half-square triangles or burn out on the process. We had a lot of fun making this, but it can be a big undertaking if you're not prepared!
