Autumn Love Sew Along - Bucket Block
Welcome to the Autumn Love Throwback Sew Along with Happy Little Stitch Shop!
Each year we try to host a Lori Holt throwback sew along and I KNEW Autumn Love had to be on the list. The tricky part was that the Autumn Love fabric collection has been discontinued - building a kit had to start from scratch. After MUCH encouragement from my Happy Little Stitcher community, we did it! We made the kit with substitute fabrics, we have all the information from Lori and we are ready to dive in!
To refresh your memory, this is the Autumn Love quilt that we are making...
The very first thing to do is go back and read Lori's Bee Prepared post. You can find it HERE.
You will also need the Autumn Love Sew Along Guide which Lori links in her post, but just in case you missed it you can find it HERE.
I also have an updated schedule for you. Remember, everyone should sew at their own pace and ENOY making this lovely quilt, but if you are a schedule person...here you go...this is the schedule we will be following.
You can find all the fabric substitution information in my first blog post HERE.
Let's roll on in to Week 3!!
First things first...here is a little teaser from Lori's blog post for Week Three...
It is SO IMPORTANT for you to go read Lori's blog post. She gives lots of key information in putting these blocks together. You can find her Bucket Block blog post HERE.
And now...here are some photos of my block using the Autumn Love kit curated by Happy Little Stitch Shop (me). 😁
Just look at that cute little bucket full of pumpkin!
Now...HERE is a link to my YouTube video for our Bucket block. For this block I shared my steps from start to finish. Will you join me for a sewing date this week? 😁
Here it is! All ready for appliqué!
Another cute fall block for our collection!
I am making two quilts - one from the original kit and the other from our recolored Happy Little Stitch Shop kit. I thought this would be helpful to you for fabric substitutions and fabric placement. We will see if I can keep up with two blocks each week! 😅 Look how good they look side by side!!
The first 3 blocks are complete! Our fall landscape is growing and I am loving each new addition!
I will meet you right back here next week for Week Four. We have a few things on the agenda for next week. Are you ready?!
Happy stitching, my friends! 🤗
