Hemispheres Quilt Along!

It's time for a new Quilt Along! This Quilt Along will be using my FIRST pattern Hemispheres available on Aria Lane. I am so excited to finally get to debut this finished quilt and pattern!!!!

The pattern is available for purchase as a PDF on Aria Lane, and in order to participate, you will need to buy a copy since we will not be providing templates or specific details of the pattern in the Quilt Along posts.

  1. Wow - it's looks beautiful Megan!
    Making me want to play with my Sizzix DP dies!

  2. Congratulations! It's a lovely quilt and pattern. The colors sing!

  3. Congrats on your new pattern. Looks like a fun design. Have fun with the quilt along

  4. Wow! I love it! I just blogged about it! Im in! Ill wait to see if I win a copy of the pattern and if not, Ill buy it! Congrats!

  5. Congrats Megan, the pattern is great!

  6. What a gorgeous quilt! Congrats on teaming up with Aria Lane. I love Ayssa! And now I'll be glad to follow your blog :-)

  7. Do you have to have a Flickr account to participate? Thanks! This looks like so much fun! Very nervous about piecing curves but I want to challenge myself!

  8. Love the pattern and have purchased a pdf version and want to join in your QAL. I tried to copy your badge from the right hand side but it leads me nowhere. Could you try it again please? Thanks a lot and well done!!!

  9. What a beautiful quilt! I'll be sure to participate in all of the fun giveaways! I was also excited to learn about Aria Lane. I just started writing a few patterns for my own designs and I'm just not really sure how to really finish them and now I'm seriously considering Aria Lane. I'd love to hear more about your whole quilt pattern writing experience.

  10. I was lucky enough to win the pattern at Knotted Threads (thank you so much for providing the giveaway prize!) but I'm not sure I'd have time to join in the sew along. I'm going to follow the posts so you never know but I'm definitely a slow-lane quilter!

  11. I will have to follow this. I have never done a solid quilt before and I sure do love this quilt. I just love this quilt.

  12. Megan, I just won your Hemisphere pattern. (Thanks!) I am seriously impressed with the quality of the pattern. I've got quite a few patterns in my possession that are just a few pages long and definitely not worth the money. You have obviously put a lot of time and thought into your pattern and it shows. Kudos!

  13. I think I will play along with this - I haven't done any curved piecing for a while now and I love the way this pattern takes on different looks!
