One of the great features of lettucecraft is all of the craftalongs. They are places where you can get and give inspiration, share patterns and techniques, and receive buckets of encouragement. Participating in a craft-along is also a lot of fun as it is a great way to get to know people who share your particular obsessions. Or the case of the happy mail and Use it or lose it, a sharing and caring gift-along you just get to know some pretty darn special folk. There are a lot of craftalongs here, these are just some of them.

Rainbow charm baby quilt - Inspired-along challenge 2022 Entry

The Quiltalong ladies have really helped me along with quilting! Quilting is one of my favourite crafts but I’m not that good at it, because it’s not popular where I live so I don’t have easy access to a lot of resources or materials. And the ladies in the few local quiltshops that we have are often quite dismissive about modern styles of quilting. Even though I made my first quilt when I was literally in school and have been a member of this community since 2006, I have learned more about quilting in the LC Quiltalong than in the 15 years before that. Last year @AIMR generously sent me bunch of quilting supplies, including a 1/4 inch foot and the charm pack that I used for this project.

Here is my entry! I hope i followed the rules correctly…

This was actually inspired by two alongs, the “stitch along to the end of time” and the Destash-along. I combined both April themes into one project. It was so much fun to do a no rules, no expectations, just-for-me-for-fun project.
