In and Out Quilt-Along Sign Up

This sign-up time has now passed for those who will have the opportunity for weekly prizes.

But you can still get in on the fun.  I will be posting the instructions for the Quilt Along in late February 2018 here on this page. So come back then!

In the meantime, head over to our the Facebook page and see how we are progressing.



Welcome to my first Quilt Along!

I’ve been wanting to start designing my own quilt patterns for some time now.  And I’ve decided This Is The Year!  I have designed a quilt pattern called “In and Out” and I’m pretty happy with the result.

I need your help!

I need quilters who are willing to test my pattern!  We all know how frustrating it can be to buy a quilt pattern, and then become totally frustrated as the directions are wrong or some are missing.  I want to start my design career out on the right foot and create excellent directions that are easy to follow.

And so I’ve put together this Quilt Along so that you can help me test my pattern and can offer me feedback on how I can make the instructions better. This is a 5-week quilt along where new instructions will come out every week for 5 weeks. At the end of 5 weeks, you will have a beautiful quilt top to keep for yourself or give away as a gift.

Win Prizes!

In return for your help, I am giving away prizes each week.  All you have to do to enter the drawing is finish each week’s assignment, then post an image on The Quilted Turtle Facebook Page.  Once a week, I will draw a lucky winner! I will be giving away some prizes, some of my favorite quilting tools!



Here is the schedule of instructions that will be coming to your email inbox:

Week 1 – Introduction, choose fabric for quilt.

Week 2 – Cutting the pieces you will need to make the quilt.

Week 3 – Sew half square triangles.

Week 4 – Assemble blocks.

Week 5 – Sew the blocks together into the full quilt.

Week 6 – Show and Tell – See quilts from everyone who has submitted photos!
