Wonderland Quilt Along

Hooray! I am starting a Wonderland Quilt Along next week.


Do you remember the quilt?


I originally made it up in C + S Rifle Paper Company Wonderland fabrics, which you can find at The Confident Stitch or Fat Quarter Shop. Riley Blake's Wonderland Two at The Confident Stitch (also at Fat Quarter Shop), Blend's Wonderland, or Springs Creative Disney fabrics would be nice options too. My Quilt Along rendition will be in Angela Pignel's Curious Dream for Windham, which you can find at Fabric.com or Fat Quarter Shop.


Fabric requirements are approximate, as the amount needed will vary depending upon your familiarity with paper-piecing (since many of the blocks employ this technique). Using non-directional prints (no matter how you turn them, they still looks equally upright) will also make things easier and more efficient. I recommend using quality quilting cottons that feel nice and will wear well whether you purchase at a local quilt shop, online, or a big box store. I like to stick with quality brands I trust including Art Gallery, Robert Kaufman, Wyndham, Michael Miller, Cotton + Steel, Riley Blake, etc.

Background: 3 yards (Choose something that contrasts nicely with your other fabrics so you can see your piecing. It typically works better if you avoid large-scale prints.)

Black and White Solid: 1/8 yard of each

20 Coordinating 1/4 yards (such as a fat quarter bundle)

I'll be using the coordinating Aurifil thread collection. Whoo hoo!
