Makoti Quilt Along…

I’m super excited to be hosting a new quilt along, using the brand new fabric collection designed by Stuart Hillard called ‘Makoti’ for the Craftcotton Company.

The colours and patterns are really bold and bright.

The first block will be released on Friday 10th April, with each new block being released every two weeks.

This quilt along will be perfect for anyone new to sewing and quilting, but also great for those who just want to keep themselves busy.  Please spread the word and join in.

There will be giveaways along the way too, so be sure to be following myself @michelle_creativeblonde, Stuart @stuarthillardsews and @craftcottonco  on instagram.

This quilt is made up of nine 16″ x 16″ blocks, when finished will create a quilt approximately 56″ x 56″, a perfect size for a lap quilt or bed quilt to brighten up any bedroom.

  1. I am really rubbish with yardage. I have the full set of Stuart’s new line, but the 1/2 metre bundle. Will that be enough? Thank you

    1. Hi Bryony, thanks for getting in touch, really happy to know you’ll be sewing along 🙂 you will need appropriatly 5 metres in total for the top quilt. Colours can be changed if you have more of one fabric then another. Or if you only have half a metre of each, as some of require 5/8. Hope this helps, please ask away if you have anymore questions, stay safe xx
