The Schedule - Home For the Holidays Sew Along

It's almost here! Are you excited?! The Home for the Holidays Sew Along starts in just 10 days!
I can not wait to start stitching this quilt.
Here is the schedule for the sew along. Please remember that you're not bound to this schedule. We laid it out so that you'll be able to take your time and COMPLETE the quilt. We don't want any UFOs left at the end of the sew along! If you're a go getter and have the time, you're more than welcome to sew at a faster pace than the rest of us (or maybe it's just me?)
I will be taking the 6 months to do it... unless in February I get some wild hair to sew more! ;)

~Your assignment for each week starts on January 1st. You'll have a new assignment every Friday.~

If you're just joining us now and you still need supplies, please refer to the post below this one. At the end of it I have a lot of resources for you!
We will be posting our progress shots every Friday on Instagram using the hashtag #homefortheholidayssewalong so you'll be able to see everyone's progress. Let's use this to cheer each other on and encourage one another to sew, sew, sew!
Have a wonderful Christmas!
