Alphabet Soup Sew Along

We’re kicking off a new sew along. Julie will guide you through her approach to making the letters, numbers, & projects from the book Alphabet Soup using the Hex N More & Super Sidekick rulers, and the new Jaybird Quilts Fussy Cut Shapes! The Fussy Cut Shapes are optional for the sew along and all of them are put to work to make Alphabet Soup. 

Sign up here to join us for the sew along. Sew along emails will have the links to the video tutorials as they’re available, sew along worksheets, giveaways and prizes, and discounts to quilt shops exclusively for sew along participants.

I love all your patterns and rulers but I wish the alphabet soup book had directions to make the letters smaller!
