The new year, 2022, is almost here, and that means that a whole host of new quilt-alongs (and sew-alongs) are about to begin! For the past few years, I’ve been collecting a list of all the upcoming quilt and sew-alongs coming up in the new year, and this year is no different. There are so many amazing quilt alongs happening in 2022, which means the challenge is on for you to find your favorite ones!
The wonderful variety in this ever-growing list of quilt-along is that there are no two quilt alongs alike. Looking to boost your quilting skills? Sew something row by row? Create a small wall hanging, or a queen size bed quilt? Guaranteed, there’s a QAL just for you.
Have you signed up for any quilt-alongs yet? Let me know in the comments; I’d love to add them to this growing list.
As for me, I’m getting ready to host three quilt-alongs this year. The first is casual and runs most every Friday – together, we’ll be practicing our free motion quilting. I know, I know, not your traditional quilt along – but we had so much fun practicing our FMQ skills last year that I wanted to continue that in 2022 as well. I invite you to learn more and join in the adventure – you can even print out the complimentary Free Motion Friday stickers for your planner and be extra organized for 2022. (…and if you’re looking for a planner, I highly recommend The Quilter’s Planner!) Each new free motion quilt pattern comes with a full video tutorial in our growing video library!
The second quilt along will be for Lent; we’ll be making a quilt similar to our Jesse Tree quilt that we made for Advent, but this time we’ll be making a quilt for Lent inspired by the eight days of Holy Week. Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the blocks in the quilt…you can see all the blocks here and even register for the quilt along which begins on March 14th!
My third quilt along is one near and dear to my heart. After completing the Jesse Tree quilt-along last year, I’m planning on doing it again this coming December. So, you can future plan for a 2022 quilt along by penciling this into your planner for December 1st! Look how organized you are! 🙂 This quilt is so special to me, and I’m beyond excited about hosting this special quilt-along with you in again this year, which includes not only the block but an Advent Devotions each day of December. Thank you for joining me on this faith journey!
(Note: pictures of quilts are always enticing, but I wanted to respect their copyrights…so you’ll need to click over to each QAL page to view the final image of the quilt they’ll be making.)
