Join the Community Quilt Along

 
 

Join Kim from Chatterbox Quilts in the Community Quilt Along, where you will be making the Community quilt (45½" x 49") created by Keith Phillips of QuiltFusion. The quilt along will have 4 parts, each with its own pattern, instructional videos, SVG files, and reference documents to guide you through making Community. 

This is not your average quilt along!  A unique combination of patterns, video tutorials, creativity tools and special BONUSES have been put together to take the concept of an online quilt along to the next level.

Why should I join the Community Quilt Along?

  • It's fun! Many people join quilts alongs because they like to participate with other quilters when making a quilt.

We also provide access to a private Facebook group where you can interact with other quilters making the same project.
  • The videos and patterns can be accessed at your convenience. Unlike a “live” class, you won’t have to keep up with the teacher: you can stop the videos at any time and review any sections you wish. 
  • Chatterbox Quilts' Quilt Alongs are digital products which means you can access the patterns and videos anywhere at any time.
  • Once you enrol in the Community Quilt Along, the pattern, videos and reference materials are your to keep.
