It’s week 3 of the Alma Quilt QAL and time is flying by! This week we will be constructing colors 4 and 5. This is where you really start to see the quilt come together.
I talked about this last week, but these two colors are really the main colors of your quilt. With this Modern rainbow Baby Alma version I really wanted the Frosting Pink to be the main focus of the quilt. Keep that in mind as you construct your quilt. If you don’t like color number 5, pick a different one! Haha
And I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t make a few mistakes along the way! No matter how many times I proof a pattern and have my pattern testers checking….there will be mistakes! Without further adieu, pattern correction number 1. This correction is for the original Alma pattern. On Assembly Instructions for Color 4 it should state to measure and then draw the line at 13″. The original pattern said to do it at 13.5″ Make sure to make that change in your pattern!
I am excited to start making this quilt. I am a bit behind with a broken foot! I never expected to be running a quilt along with a busted up foot! I should be sewing again soon. The good news is this quilt is so fast! I seriously made two baby Alma quilts in one weekend! So even if you haven’t had a chance to start, you still have time to make this quilt! As always, I’m using my favorite Aurifil thread to piece this together!
