Welcome to the Poinsettia Song QuiltALong on Annie's Creative Studio
I'm so excited that I finally get to share the Poinsettia Song quilt with you! I've been working behind the scenes on it since early 2018 and now it's available as a QuiltALong for you to participate in and make.
Poinsettia Song is a 13 week Quilt A Long that I am teaching available on Annie's Creative Studio. We cover a block a week for the first 12 weeks and then on the 13th week the episode focuses completely on the assembly instructions and how to quilt the final quilt.
Poinsettia Song includes a lot of techniques – including Paper-piecing, Fussy Cutting, Y-Seams, Squaring Up Units and Blocks, Template Piecing, Partial Seams, Framed Blocks, Multi-part Cornerstones and Pieced Borders. I like to call it - "A Little Bit of Everything but Applique" quilt!
And yes, some of these are more intermediate and advanced level skills – but by learning together as I demonstrate each step in the video, it will give you an opportunity to grow as a quilter.
The quilt is named based on the fabric collection used to make the sample quilt – Poinsettia Song from HoffmanCalifornia- International. I want to give a huge Thank You to Hoffman California-International for graciously donating the fabrics for the sample quilt as well as the step outs using during taping.
While it may look challenging, this is a tremendously rewarding quilt to make. Your confidence and skills as a quilter will grow week by week as you learn and master new techniques.
If you have been on the fence about joining Annie's Creative Studio, now the time! You will get access not only to this quilt along but hundreds of other classes not only in quilting and sewing, but also knit, crochet and home décor.
I sure hope you will join me and participate in the Poinsettia Song QuiltALong. It was a log of fun to make this quilt and tape the episodes for you to learn new techniques and master quilting skills. If you get started now, you will have a beautiful quilt for your bed by Christmas!
