One of the fun things about starting a new year is setting goals and making plans for your creative projects for the year to come. I have compiled a list of 27 Sew Alongs, Quilt Alongs, and Quilting Challenges for 2020. Some of them will run the whole year and introduce you to a variety of skills and techniques, while others are a few months long and guide you through a specific pattern. Some are free, and others have a fee to join or require you to purchase a pattern in order to participate.
Are you hosting a SAL, QAL, or challenge that you would like me to add? Feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll be sure to add it. Are you participating in a SAL, QAL, or challenge that I missed? Please let me know so we can share it!
Buy The Pattern, and the Quilt Along is Free
If you already have the pattern, then you’re all set to join these QALs. If not, for about $12 (some are more, some are less), you’re all set!
The Quilter’s Planner Sampler Sew Along: Purchase a Quilter’s Planner to get this pattern, along with 12 other full quilt patterns, and an incredible yearly planner. This BOM pattern is filled with community support, resources, and lots of fun and prizes!
Karie Jewell’s Jeweled Facets Sew Along: This EPP Sew Along starts in February. I’m definitely participating in this one. So excited to work on this super versatile, beautiful pattern! And you can buy a PDF and print as many of the papers as you need!
QuiltJetGirl’s Push Pull Quilt Along: Explore transparency and color selection in this quilt along. (The fee is for the quilt along content and pattern, but the price is so similar to a pattern purchase, that I included it in this category.)
Meadowland Quilt Along: Meghan of Then Came June is hosting her second Meadowland Quilt Along. With already 1200 participants signed up, this quilt along promises to be filled with lots of community fun!
Block of the Month Memberships
Pay an annual or monthly membership fee to join these Block of the Month memberships. They come with monthly block patterns and other resources – it varies by program, but some offer step-by-step videos, Facebook groups for community support, and other resources.
