2022 quiltalong

Get ready to sew all your favorite quilt blocks this year! This is the year that we are going to sew everything but the kitchen sink in our Kitchen Sink 2022 Quiltalong.

This bold graphic quilt is perfect for learning new quilt making skills that build on one another, or for putting skills you already have into a big beautiful quilt.

Check out our Kitchen Sink 2022 Quiltalong Quilt:

The SewCanShe Kitchen Sink 2022 Quiltalong Quilt has 10 different quilt block patterns. We’ll release a new free block pattern each month and tell you how many blocks to make with it.

By the end of 10 months, you’ll have 64 blocks (each 12 1/2” x 12 1/2”) that you can sew into a bold and graphic queen size 96” x 96” quilt.

If you’d rather make a king size quilt, just add 2” sashing in between your blocks and a 2” border to get a huge 114” x 114” quilt. This will require 6 3/4 yards of gray fabric instead of just 3 yards.

The 10 free quilt block patterns that we will sew throughout 2022 will be:

  • Four Patch Block
  • Nine Patch Block (available sometime in February 2022)
  • Half Square Triangle Block (available sometime in March 2022)
  • Quarter Square Triangle Block (available sometime in April 2022)
  • Friendship Star Block (available sometime in May 2022)
  • Flying Geese Block (available sometime in June 2022)
  • Variable Star Block (available sometime in July 2022)
  • Ohio Star Block (available sometime in August 2022)
  • Nine Patch Chain Block (available sometime in September 2022)
  • Pinwheel Mosaic Block (available sometime in October 2022)

These classic quilt block patterns will be shared in order of difficulty. No matter what your quiltmaking experience is, you will be able to sew all of them if you start with the first and work through them all. One technique will build upon the next!

Quilt Fabric Selection

This quilt was designed to be sewn with 6 solid fabrics, but your 6 favorite prints or blenders will work great too. You may have noticed that I designed this quilt for 2 light fabrics, 2 medium value fabrics, and 2 relatively dark fabrics. If you keep that in mind when choosing fabrics, you will do great! I suggest that you lay out your six fabrics on your table and see how they look together.

My camera changed the fabric colors slightly, but you can still see that they look good together.

If you absolutely must have the same 6 fabrics that I am using, here are some links to buy them from Fat Quarter Shop:

    I am a beginner , and I have just made a few mug rugs.
    Is this project too hard for me?

    1. Hi Lorrie,
      I think this project will be perfect! We will start with very easy blocks. There will only be written instructions, however. If you would like to learn quilt piecing with step by step videos, may I suggest my Choose Joy Block of the Month? It includes several videos for each block and will give you lots of confidence for all kinds of quilt projects.

    What additional fabric is required to add the sashings and border?

    1. Hi Carol,
      If you would like to make a king sized quilt with additional 2” sashings and a 2” border, you will need 6 3/4 yards of gray fabric instead of 3 yards.

  5. I can’t seem to find the fabrics that you used. Can you please share them?

  6. When will the first block be issued? Will they be issued weekly?
    Thank you for creating the QAL – Looking forward to it!

    I want to join, but I don’t see the fabric requirements. I put in my email and it was only the link for the 4patch block. Can you help me find the requirements so I can purchase my fabrics? Thanks

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I found the link. it was in a separate email that arrived a bit after the first : )

  9. Elizabeth M says:

    My daughter and I are planning on following this quiltalong. We like the look of the sashing between the blocks on the King size but we don’t want to make a King size quilt. Is there an easy way to to adjust the pattern to accommodate the sashing in a queen size quilt?
