1. "Quilt Recipes" This Way Not That Quilt Along: Week 1 + "Yellow Creek Quilts" book by Jill Shaulis

    Welcome to Week 1 of the "Quilt Recipes" This Way Not That Quilt Along!

    We have three important steps to check off the list this week:

    1) Make sure you have a copy of the "Quilt Recipes" book by Jen Kingwell. If you already have your copy–great! Gold stars to you! If you don’t have a copy yet–no problem, there’s still time to get your book before we get cutting and stitching! Visit ShopMartingale.com, your local quilt shop, or anywhere you buy quilting books to get your copy as soon as possible. (Tip: Save 7% on "Quilt Recipes" at ShopMartingale.com now, plus get free shipping if your order is $60 or more* US only.)

    2) Choose your fabrics! Referring to p. 25 of "Quilt Recipes" for yardage requirements, choose feature fabrics, dark fabrics for the corner triangles, and light fabrics for the corner triangles that you want to use in YOUR This Way Not That quilt. Which color palette will you use? Will you mirror Jen’s color choices, or do you want to put your own spin on the color choices?

    Want to learn more about choosing fabrics? Watch this video! Jen does a step-by-step fabric pull to demonstrate and explain how YOU can:
    • choose fabrics to create visual interest.
    • use her tiered method to provide sparkle.
    • achieve a scrappy–yet coordinated–look for your quilts.


    Martingale staffer Lisa Schumacher will be sewing along and sharing her project with you. Lisa is a long-time fan of Jen Kingwell’s fabric collections and quilt patterns, so she’s delighted to lead the This Way Not That Quilt Along on behalf of Martingale. Lisa shares her fabric choices in the quick video below. Here’s the info:
