Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along
Have you seen Cheryl Brickey's newest book - Just Two Charm Pack Quilts?  We had the amazing honor of Long Arm Machine Quilting many of the quilts photographed! 

When her book released a few months ago, I completely fell in love with one quilt pattern specifically, the Diagonal Joy Quilt.  The fabric requirements are so versatile; 2 Charm Packs or a Layer Cake or a Jelly Roll, and some yardageHow easy is that?!  It also very scrap-friendly, if you have an overflowing bin of scraps.

Come join me as I sew this quilt, piece-by-piece, step-by-step.  I will have some fun tips to share with you along the way!  This is a great skill-builder pattern for a confident beginner and beyond.

I will be using the above pictured Sunnyside fabric collection from Moda.  I am so excited about this quilt!!

The Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along articles will be published right here on our blog.  The pattern is one of many published patterns in the Just Two Charm Pack Quilts book.  The book is required to participate as no cutting/sizing information will be given.  The book is available HERE.
