Hampton Court Quilt Along Week One Link-up!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Week One of the Hampton Court Quilt Along!  There is still time to join.  Sign up for the QAL newsletter right here.  All QAL information is posted in the newsletter, and participants link up their progress here on the blog.

So far there are over 190 signed up for the Quilt Along which is super exciting! :) 

Get the Hampton Court pattern right here.

Hampton Court includes 4 sizes - Throw, Twin, Queen, and King - and is scrap and yardage friendly. This is a strip pieced quilt pattern, so you won't be sewing together individual bricks unless you really want to. Instructions include both strip piecing and traditional piecing.

Hampton Court is based in King Henry VIII's castle, Hampton Court, from the 1500s. The design with varying brick sizes can be found on the exterior of the castle.


Each step is two weeks:

  • February 15 Fabric Selection / Cutting
  • March 1 Make Strip Sets
  • March 15 Assemble Quilt Top
  • March 29 Finished Quilts (link-up ends April 11th at midnight Pacific time)

Fabric Selection and Cutting

Over the next two weeks we're selecting fabrics and cutting in preparation for sewing.  The quilt pattern is required to participate, and tips and suggestions are included in the quilt along newsletter.


One random participant will receive their choice of two PDF Download quilt patterns from my shop, Busy Hands Quilts!  

Be sure I have a way to contact you without having to do a bunch of sleuthing.  If you are a no-reply blogger, I can't reach you.

As this is to be a stress free sew along, I will not be posting any pictures. It is something that is not a part of my life and can not do easily. I wish I could so I would be entered into the door prize. I am using Tula Pink for most of it. I only have fat eights so I have to see what more I need. Still deciding on the background. Navy, Navy Dot, or White on White. Happy Creating.
