Hi and welcome to the Alma Quilt Along! I am so excited you are here! Alma means ‘heart and soul’ in Spanish. That perfectly sums up how I feel about designing quilts! Quilting is my heart and soul!
I love sewing along with friends. So I thought it would be fun to sew this up with friends during the LOVE holiday! You are free to go at your own pace, but here is a schedule if you want to follow along!
Let’s get started! The first thing you need is the pattern! I have actually released two different sizes of quilts- a throw size and a crib size quilt. You can choose which one you want to do the Alma quilt or the Baby Alma quilt. You can purchase both in my Etsy shop.
Here is the Baby Alma quilts I stitched up. I chose a traditional rainbow as well as a modern/more muted rainbow. I can’t decide which one is my favorite. I designed this Baby Alma quilt with Rainbow babies in mind. You can check out my blog post all about it here.
I made this Alma quilt for Valentine’s Day last year. I LOVE the ombre pink! Have you decided which one you want to make???
