Quick, think of your favorite fall combos: cooler weather and cozy sweaters, apple cider and caramel, football and tailgating, pumpkins and…everything!
Did plaid and flannel come to mind for you? How about quilts and sew-alongs?
Quilting and sew-alongs are all-season pursuits for most of us, and to me nothing says fall like plaid and flannel! Well, here on the fabric.com blog, we’re putting all of that together into a fun sew-along that will hopefully inspire and motivate you to make a cozy lap blanket that’s just right for the cooler fall weather.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be hosting a quilt-as-you-go log cabin blanket sew-along. We’ll officially kick off on Friday, October 21st with a discussion on choosing fabrics and yardage requirements. Then we’ll review the quilt-as-you-go method and start our blankets.
The fabric.com Fall Sew-Along Schedule
- Week 1 (October 21): Choosing fabrics and yardage requirements
- Week 2 (October 28): Cutting your fabric and quilt-as-you-go method overview

- Week 4 (November 11): Joining your blocks and binding your quilt
I’m so excited for this sew-along and I hope you’ll join in! In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the fabrics I chose for my blanket.
