Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along

I was massively behind on the quilt along and didn’t get to post pictures of my cutting pile or my assembly. So, here is the pile of pieces all cut out, ready to go.

Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Pieces

I will say that the cutting and assembly of this quilt top went super fast. I honestly started cutting on Monday evening of this week (8/29) and was able to get everything pieced by this afternoon (9/2). This even with life interfering and starting our homeschool¬†year on Monday. Doing a quilt along is a great way to meet new people and get their version of the same quilt. It has been so much fun seeing everyone’s creations. I now only have to get some backing fabric and binding so that I can start quilting.

Here is a picture of the finished top:

The Quilting Jetgirl is having an awesome sew-along on her Facebook page and I decided to join in the fun! You can join her group here. I have gone with a shimmery gray colorway, but The Fat Quarter Shop has kits available here and here. My fabrics are pictured above¬†and I haven’t gotten around to the back or choices for thread as of yet. This is my first foray into doing a quilt along, as I have done clothing pieces but never a whole quilt. It is going to be challenging to complete each step on time and will be a good test of my skills. Come join in on the fun, she is giving away a ton of prizes just for joining and sewing along with all of us!
