And quilting nirvana is just where you’ll be when you join our new America the Beautiful Quilt Along debuting this Friday, March 27. America the Beautiful is one of our most-beloved sampler quilt patterns of all time. Designed by Lynn Lister, this pattern has quilt blocks galore plus a heartwarming theme based on Katharine Lee Bates’ stirring lyrics to a song second only to the national anthem in American patriotism. Our step by step video tutorials and pattern will help you create your own version of this gorgeous quilt:
See why we love it? From the purple mountains majesty to the fruited plains, this sampler quilt pattern will hold your interest and help you create a most memorable quilt.
All 12 of the video lessons in this series are available to watch free for a limited time at QNNtv.com. We’ll be highlighting them one per week on our Facebook page, and you can watch at your own convenience. The complete pattern is available for purchase in our online shop, but many of you already have it in your personal libraries from its earlier appearances in McCall’s Quilting magazine and a 2012 newsstand-only special issue, America Quilts Together.
Ready to sew? Get your pattern ready and mark your calendar to watch Lesson 1 beginning Friday, March 27. And visit our America the Beautiful website page and our Pinterest board for all the details, plus bonus photos and a Canadian flag block pattern for our friends up north!
