I’m so excited to be kicking off the Singing in the Rain Sew Along today! We’re going to be talking about the schedule, supplies and we’re having a fabulous giveaway!
For this sew along we’re going to be making the Singing in the Rain Quilt! We will be sewing one row a week so here’s how the schedule will go.
- May 4 – Row One – Sunny Dresdens
- May 11 – Row Two – Umbrellas
- May 18 – Row Three – Raindrops

We’re going to have so much fun sewing each row! And I’ll have tips each week as we go. Plus something fun – every week I’ll be doing a little live sew along of the block of the week in my Facebook Group! So if you’d like to check that out, you can join the group here!
And don’t worry if you don’t have time to do the entire row each week – there’s no time limit! The posts will stay on the blog and videos in the group so feel free to take as long as you like.
