2019 Designer Duo: Mix It Up is Almost Here!

May 17, 2019 is the kick-off date for this year's Designer Duo Quilt Along hosted by Sarah J Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J and me.

MIX IT UP is the title of the quilt along for a good reason.  We each started with two different 18" blocks, and four different 6" blocks.  Then we each mixed in ANY eleven 12" blocks of our choosing. For my quilt I mixed together two of my fabric collections: Do The Math and Getting to Know Hue. Sarah mixed together a sweet print collection and a batik collection, both of her design. (I'll let Sarah tell you more about her fabric choices over on her blog). Then we set about making our quilts.

And we invited FIVE guest designers to join us! I cannot wait for you to see the fantastic quilt they have created. Tiffany Hayes of Needle in a Hayes Stack, Karen O'Connor of Lady K Quilts, Dolores Smith of Timeworn Toolbox, Elisabeth Hardy of Elisabewquilts, and Giuseppe Ribaudo, aka Giucy Giuce will be quilting along with us and showcasing their fabric and block choices, sewing tips, and giving away some goodies.

I HOPE you JOIN us! Bookmark everyone and be sure to join our Designer Duo Facebook Group.

Here is mine. It measures 78 x 90

BTW: Homestead Hearth, Fabric Essentials, and Hancock's of Paducah will have patterns and fabric kits for Sarah's and my versions of MIX IT UP.

See you next week!
