A Look Back at Quilt Concert 2021

May 6, 2022

Last year Lovingly Lissa and I set out to create a free Summer sew-along with the first annual Quilt Concert titled First Notes. This year we are excited to bring you a new design for this year’s Quilt Concert, and if you keep reading to the end, you’ll see a sneak peek of the design!

Today we are taking a look back at last year’s event!

Why a Concert?

Concert (verb)  Arrange by mutual coordination

Lissa and I worked in concert to select traditional blocks and re-mix them using alternate grid work to create a new, contemporary version of a sampler quilt.

Who Attended?

We had over 45 participants finish and submit a quilt top during the quilt along, and over 20 sponsors!

Here are just a few of the finished quilts from the First Notes Quilt Along:

How did it work?

Each Friday during the quilt along, Lissa and I released a new set of instructions. Participants had a week to make their block and post on Instagram using that week’s hashtag. There was at least one prize for each week, and a grand prize drawn from those people who submitted an image of their finished quilt top. We also held a virtual meet up each Friday night for anyone who wanted to join in!

Here are links to the weekly posts if you would like to see how Quilt Concert 2021 came together:
