16 Oct Hemispheres Quilt Along
I had the pleasure of meeting Megan at the Sewing Summit last month. She is adorable and I loved getting to know her. Her first quilt pattern called Hemispheres was just released and it is now available at Aria Lane. Isn’t it beautiful?
I love the circular quilting she used as well as her color choices. Pretty talented lady, that Megan!
I’ve already purchased the pattern for myself, even though I have never attempted curved pieces. They seem a little intimidating, but I know Megan can talk me through it. The directions are very well written and she’s included pictures and tips to help you along the way. She’s even added a coloring sheet to narrow down the endless possibilities that this pattern presents. I’m so excited to share Hemispheres with you today and fill you in on the Quilt Along that will be starting soon. Here are the details:
The Quilt Along Starts on October 21st. If you would like to participate, you will need to purchase your own copy of Hemispheres at Aria Lane (unless you win it today!)
