Alma Quilt QAL with Confetti Cottons

Hi! It’s Jen from The Smitten Chicken! I am excited to be stopping by the Riley Blake Designs Blog today and let you know about a fun project I have coming up!

This is my Alma Quilt. Alma in Spanish means ‘heart and soul.’ Which is how I feel about quilting. I put my heart and soul into designing and stitching up quilts. Can anyone relate?

Now I am hosting a QAL for this awesome quilt! Would you like to join? I will share updates on my blog every week!

The first thing you need to do is get the pattern! I created two versions. The Alma quilt is a throw size quilt that is perfect for those you love! I made mine in ombre pink! Which is perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The second version is the Baby Alma Quilt. This crib size quilt is perfect for any new arrival. I designed this quilt with Rainbow babies in mind. You can read all about it on my blog here.

Whichever option you choose, I hope you will quilt along with us!
