Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along:  INTRO

Yahoo!  It's almost time.  Who's ready to get started?  I am!  I am!

Consider this your final reminder to get your book ordered in time to start next week.

Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along
Some questions have come up over the last month as new members join our group.  Here are some house-keeping points to remember:

The Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along articles will be published right here on our blog each Monday following the schedule below.

The articles will be available for the life of our website.  There is not a specific time you have to check in.  There will be a reminder of new blog posts in the Monday Newsletters.  You can join at anytime!

The Diagonal Joy Quilt is one of many published patterns in the Just Two Charm Pack Quilt book.  The Diagonal Joy Quilt is the pattern we will be working on.

The Just Two Charm Pack Quilt is required to participate as no cutting/sizing information will be given.  The book is available HERE.

You can work at your own pace.  Want to go faster?  Go right ahead.  The schedule is to help motivate and organize those that want a slower approach.

I cut and pieced my sample quilt in three days so eight weeks gives you plenty of sewing time for this project.  I love the pattern so much, I am consider doing another one.  My biggest problem, which pretty new fabric collection to use!!

Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along
The finished quilt measures 64 1/2" by 72 1/2".  Pictured above are the quilts from Cheryl's book.  What a difference color placement makes.

To help you with color ideas, Cheryl has been very kind in developing a coloring sheet for us. 

You can download the Diagonal Joy Quilt Coloring Sheet HERE.
