Hampton Court Quilt Along Week Two Extended!

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


Welcome to Week Two of the Hampton Court Quilt Along!  All QAL information is posted in the newsletter, and participants link up their progress here on the blog.

I am extending the Week Two step by two weeks since I haven't finished my own quilt top, and I'm thinking you may need more time, too.






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.


Schedule


Each step is two weeks:

  • February 15 Fabric Selection / Cutting
  • March 1 Make Strip Sets
  • March 15 (extra two weeks added here)
  • March 29 Assemble Quilt Top
  • April 12 Finished Quilts (link-up ends April 25th at midnight Pacific time)


Make Strip Sets


Over the next two weeks we're making strip sets and cutting segments.

Here are my strip sets; I haven't cut the segments yet.  I was going to make a blue and white quilt but didn't have enough blues in the stash and had plenty of black prints, so black and white it is!  Because the three other Hampton Court quilts I've made have a variety of colors in them, I wanted this one to be a single colorway with white.



Prizes!


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.

Thank you for the extension. I have all my assorted fabrics cut, but was waiting on my solid to get here. Of course, while waiting for it, I changed my mind about it and ordered a different color. Both fabrics came in the same day, and I went back my first choice. I started cutting the strips, and realized I was on the wrong page about halfway through, cutting for individual piecing. I cut the rest of it for strip piecing. I started sewing my strips together, I figure I'll sew as many strips as I can and then switch over to the stitching individual pieces together. Hoping to catch up this week :)
