Color Jolt Quilt

Kate Brown of Sparkle Stash is running a QAL for her brilliant Color Jolt Quilt, you can read all the details on her website and buy the pattern so you can join in here

This quilt is Foundation Paper Pieced (FPP) there are only three sewn lines per block, so if you've wanted to try it out but have been put off this really is a great pattern to start with.

There are a variety of sizes and layouts you can make, Kate has some excellent information on her website with lots of inspiring visuals. I've already made an Ombre rainbow version, so for the QAL I'm making a Christmas version - I'd love to have you sewing along with me.

Starting on 1st October and running for 6 weeks until 11th November, you can follow along on Instagram using the hashtag #colorjoltqal and #colorjoltquilt or why not get a group of friends together and use the below schedule?

Week 1 1st October - start choosing colours/fabrics for your quilt and work out your layout

Week 2 8th October - Cut you fabric
