Bernie's Mittens Fall Quilt Along!

I love fall - the changing leaves, wearing jeans and sweatshirts again, and my kids going back to school.  My youngest child turns nine on Friday and once his birthday is over, it's clear sailing to the holiday season.  I'm busy behind the scenes putting the final touches on my upcoming Zephyr quilt pattern (and planning a holiday version!), but I also really want to make another Bernie's Mittens quilt as a gift for a family member and would love to have you sew along with me. So today I'm happy to announce the fall Bernie's Mitten Quilt Along!

To kick things off, the Bernie's Mittens pattern is on sale in my Etsy shop, no coupon needed.  And $2 from the sale of each pattern until the end of October will be donated to my local food bank!

Bernie's Mittens is a super-easy, beginner-friendly quilt pattern.  We'll be sewing the strips in reverse order because there are the most of stripe 3 - so if you get your cutting down early and are eager to start sewing you can just jump in!

Still my favorite quilt picture ever!

I already have my fabric picked out - I'm using Memories by Cecile Metzger for Figo Fabrics.  My family loves playing card games and I love how these little suits will just look like fancy yarn specks from a distance.  I'm not sure the purple has enough contrast so I've ordered a pink fabric and will decide between the two of them once it arrives.  And somehow this will be the first Bernie to get a cozy flannel back!

As a small pattern designer, I can't offer any big or fancy prizes, but there is a contest on my Instagram page to win a free copy of Bernie's Mittens before the quilt-along starts and I do have a small prize for one person who completes their top by December 5th (I'm giving an extra week since the quilt-along technically ends the week of Thanksgiving).  I hope you'll join me, whether you're making this for yourself or a holiday gift that's ready well in advance of the holiday season!  I can't wait to see all your beautiful variations of Bernie's Mittens!

Bernie's Mittens is a very appealing design Karin. I hope you have fun hosting the QAL and making another version of the quilt.
