Let’s make my Fair Isle Quilt together!

Fair Isle is not difficult from a piecing-technique standpoint, but there are lots of pieces to cut and the pattern is relatively complex. This 8-week program will keep you on course, so that you get it done in plenty of time for Christmas! And you’ll get lots of tips and time-saving suggestions along the way. (No, you don’t have to do it in “real time”—these posts will continue to be available for those making Fair Isle in future years as well.) Links to all the posts in the Sew-Along are below.

You do need to purchase the Fair Isle pattern to participate in the Sew-Along.
