Cathedral Window Sampler Quilt Along Blog Hop

Well, that's quite a mouthful, isn't it?!  I'm so excited to finally be able to announce the big event that's kicking off next week!  Yes, next week is already October, I can hardly believe it!

Cathedral Window Sampler QAL

I am so excited to be teaming up with Pellon and FreeQuiltPatterns.info, along with 8 other amazing designers, to bring you a fun 9-block Cathedral Window mini sampler.  Each week in October, there will be two block tutorials featuring each designer's take on the traditional Cathedral Window.  

Oct 1 :: Sara @ Sew Sweetness
Oct 4 :: Bree @ My Crafty Crap
Oct 8 :: Jill @ Made with Moxie
Oct 11 :: Emily @ Mommy's Nap Time
Oct 15 :: Rachael @ Imagine Gnats
Oct 18 :: Jessica @ Sew Crafted
Oct 22 :: Elizabeth @ Don't Call Me Betsy
Oct 25 :: Kim @ My Go-Go Life
Oct 29 :: Heather @ Olive & Ollie

And of course, what would a quilt along be without prizes?!  We have some truly amazing prizes for you from some amazing sponsors.

I'll share the full prize run down later this week, but there will be prizes for completing each individual block and for completing the full 9-block sampler top (does not need to be fully completed with back & binding).  You will have until November 15 to complete all the blocks, so you should have plenty of time, even if you're lucky enough to be attending Sewing Summit or Fall Quilt Market.  

Here's a quick peek at my block I'll be sharing next week.

Stay tuned for more info this week, and get ready to kick things off next week!

Until next time...

I love Cathedral Windows!! I have always wanted to make that quilt, but I've shied away because I don't quite think I have the pattern perfect yet. I would of course do it by hand the traditional method. I love hand work. I'm crazy I know. But I love that part of the hand work. They are just such beautiful quilts!! I can't wait to see what comes of this blog hop!!

That looks like a fun hop! I've been wanting to learn to make Cathedral Windows for a long time. I'll have to see if I can hop in late. My fabric and sewing machines are packed up with the movers until October 6th.
