Gather Quilt Pattern: Total HST Madness!

The Gather quilt pattern, the final pattern in our 2020 four-part series, is finally available tomorrow, November 20! You can now make all of the patterns in this wonderful series that represents the seasons in a year as well as the seasons in our lives. The four patterns include:

  1. Grow Quilt Pattern (Download) - focus skill: cutting and sewing strips and creating a medallion
  2. Thrive Quilt Pattern (Download) - focus skill: sewing blocks on point
  3. Shine Quilt Pattern (Download) - focus skill: improv cutting and sewing
  4. Gather Quilt Pattern (Download) - focus skill: cutting and sewing HSTs and building a quilt top asymmetrically

In the Gather quilt pattern we are building on the skills of the past three patterns. From the Grow pattern we are still cutting and sewing long strips of fabric. Similar to the Thrive quilt pattern we are chain-piecing lots of blocks and then sewing them into rows. And just like the Shine quilt pattern had you sewing outside of the typical "quilting box," so will the layout of this Gather quilt pattern.

Also like the other three patterns, Gather will have a community sew along that will start January 13, 2021. That way we all get a nice long break for the holidays and then can hit the ground running with some fun sewing in the new year!

But before I go any further in talking about this Gather quilt, I first want to say that for those in the USA specifically, Happy Thanksgiving! I don't know what your typical plans are, but ours have been sadly altered because of the pandemic.

This little tripod (plus Scrappy and the half-cooked baby inside me) will be celebrating Thanksgiving and most likely Christmas with no extended family or friends because of the stay at home orders here in Chicago. It's not what we want, but we're having faith that it won't last forever and someday soon we can gather together without the assistance of FaceTime or Zoom. Won't it be glorious??

Happy Thanksgiving

    I’m so excited about this quilt pattern and the sew-along! I’d love to have this quilt on my bed, but I have a king-sized bed. Any chance you can help me figure out fabric requirements for king size?

    • Suzy Quilts says:

      I love the enthusiasm! I chose not to make this design as a king because I think the construction would be overly difficult. If you are open to adding borders to the queen size, you probably would need about 2.5-3 yd. of that depending on how wide you would like to make them.

  3. Leanne says:

    Hi Suzy!
    These are absolutely beautiful! I’m sad that I haven’t been able to join in your sew alongs until now so I missed the first three. Normally I would be obsessed with trying to do everything in order but this quilt is so beautiful I can’t resist!
    I’m a relatively beginner quilter. Do you think that a beginner would be able to keep up with the techniques in this pattern?
    Thanks very much! You really are an inspiration.
