We are loving the chance to provide you with ways to be inspired while practicing safe social distancing habits. At the beginning of the year, we collaborated with Michael Miller Fabrics and their 2020 ambassador team. If you don't know what you want to quilt with your time inside, you have come to the right place. The Peek into Batiks Monthly Quilt Along will help!
Michael Miller + AccuQuilt Monthly Quilt Along
On the last Friday of each month, Michael Miller will release the pattern for a new block on this Making it Fun blog. Michael Miller ambassadors created a block for each month using their AccuQuilt GO! fabric cutter and the GO! Qube 8" Mix & Match Block, so you can download each pattern in AccuQuilt-friendly or rotary cutter instructions.
You can join at any time, so don't feel like you're behind! Right now, you have three blocks ready for you to sew, a fourth releasing tomorrow and eight more to watch out for the rest of the year! If you're new to quilting this will be a great opportunity to dive in. The pattern is beginner-friendly and great for practicing basic techniques.
Follow the Ambassadors, too!
This is all about getting inspired and finding joy in sewing, so take a moment to visit each of Michael Miller Fabric ambassadors. They've got amazing talent that will surely leave you itching to create magic with fabric. But don't take our word for it. See for yourself:
Mel has even joined our GO! Getter program! See what she had to say about our fabric cutter! Below is her sewn block 1 of the quilt-along and from one block, it's clear that the pattern will be stunning and beginner-friendly.
We were so pleased to be near the Material Girlfriends' booth at an event with Quilt in a Day. Check this out and be sure to check out their blog for QAL updates!
