Wake Me Up Quilt Sew-Along

Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of the Wake Me Up sew-along.

Did you manage to sew half of your blocks? From what I’ve seen in the Facebook Group and on Instagram, some of you have zoomed ahead and have finished all your blocks and even your tops, while others are still piecing away. Whatever stage you’re up to, don't worry, I want everyone to enjoy this process and if you want to finish the blocks, go for it! It's a simple quilt to piece quilt and once you get going it comes together so quickly!

If you have just joined the SAL, welcome! Be sure to grab the pattern, read up on all the details and choose your fabrics soon so you can catch up and join in the fun!

Facebook Group

By popular demand, and to facilitate the community we are all in need of, I’ve created a new Facebook group for this sew-along. The group is already humming along, sharing pics of their progress and getting to know each other a bit better. We’d love for you to join us over there!


Don’t forget to post a pic of your second lot of finished blocks on IG and be sure to the use the #wakemeupsal and #wakemeupquilt hashtags to make it easier for others to find your photos.


In some rather exciting news, we have some prizes! The wonderful and generous ladies from The Quilt Shop have kindly donated a $100 gift voucher, and Sue from Millrose Cottage has chipped in a $50 gift Voucher. All you need to do to be in the running is make sure your finished quilt top is posted to Instagram by May the 7th.

These two shops have also put together some terrific kits for the Wake Me Up quilt is you felt like making another one!


This week we are going to be making the rest of the blocks.

If you are using Method 1 to piece your quilt, you’ll be making all of the Circle Blocks.

The block below was made by Andrea, one of my fabulous patterns testers.

If you are using Method 2, then you’ll be making the other half of your blocks!

This block was made by me, it's from the 2nd Wake Me Up quilt I have sewn.


I can't help myself, I just wanted to share some more of the gorgeous blocks that have been popping up on instagram. Maybe they might inspire you to make another one!


Next week we will be assembling the quilt tops and I'm a little sad that this sew-along is nearly over.

I hope you are doing well with social distancing, to be honest the "ground hog day" part of staying at home with a little one has been getting to me. What has been saving me is sewing and also this little community we have created. I hope it’s been doing the same for you.

Stay safe my sewing friends,
