Nordic Crossing Quilt Along Week 1

Nordic Crossing Quilt Along Week 1

Sharing is caring!

Today is the first day of the Nordic Crossing Quilt Along and it is going to be so much fun!  This is actually my very first quilt along so I will have just as much fun joining you as we put together our Nordic Crossing Quilt.  Yay!

So don’t get too worried about getting behind this first week, because guess what?  This is the week where you get to make sure that you have all your fabrics in place and have considered your options for how you want the quilt to turn out.

You can sign up for the Nordic Crossing Quilt Along Emails so you don’t miss a thing if you still need to!

WEEKLY PRIZES

There will be some great weekly prizes totaling over a $500 value along the way for the participants who post to the #nordiccrossingquilt hashtag on Instagram.  Be sure to check out the sponsors below!

WEEK ONE

  • Introduce yourself on Instagram! Show us your face, show us your fabric 🙂 Remember to use the hashtag #nordiccrossingquilt
  • Gather fabrics/ pattern and supplies
  • Make a test block if that’s helpful for you!
  • Cut your fabrics after making your test block.  You can cut all at once this week or cut the blocks as you go each week.


We will ease into this quilt along with a little prep and a little cutting.

GRAB THE PATTERN

If you don’t have the pattern already, grab your copy in the shop.

GATHER THE FABRICS

If you don’t have your fabric yet, don’t panic! Order them up so you are ready to go next week.

Fat Quarters:  The small throw size of the Nordic Crossing quilt requires 8 fat quarters for the scrappy version (or more depending on how scrappy you would like it to look) or 1 1/4 of your main print for the main version.

Accent Fabric:  You will also need 1 Fat quarter or 1/4 yards of each of the accent fabrics.  Or skip the accent and add an extra yard of background.

Background Fabric:  1 2/3 yards of background fabric

I’m using a bundle of Sonata fabrics for my Nordic Crossing quilt this time around to make a scrappy version with lots of pops of color that I picked up from Cottoneer Fabrics.

Scrappy Version Nordic Crossing Mockups

The first version is the one I will be making this week using Amy Sinabaldi’s Sonata and some solid fabrics from Cottoneer Fabrics.
