All I Want for Christmas - 'Quilt Along with Debs' - All the Info!
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
(52" square - Including boarder)
Quilt-along Block of the Week
I am SEW excited to host my very first quilt along and block of the week and do hope that you will join me. The All I want for Christmas pattern is available to buy now, but I wanted to give you a head start with some information before the quilt along gets going on August 2nd. We will also take a quick look at the breakdown for the quilt along so you can get a feel for the pace.
Sign-ups for the quilt along are free if you want to observe and join the pop-up Facebook group, please contact me for details.
You will need to purchase the pattern or the kit to receive the weekly detailed cutting and pattern notes in order to join in.
There are a range of techniques in the quilt to suit all levels - but I would aim this at intermediate quilters. When you register for the QAL you will receive a welcome email from me with a password for the quilt along Facebook group where you will be able to get additional advice and guidance and there may even be a few Christmas quilty goodies thrown in for those sharing their blocks and progress.
Each week you will receive an email with that week’s pattern notes, cutting instructions and step by step guide to making each block full of helpful hints and tips to make piecing easier. Some weeks we will make a few similar blocks, others will be just a lone single block. Starting on August 2nd and finishing in the week ending December 12th….

There are a couple of ways you can choose to make this quilt. If you want to use our wonderful fabric selections from the extensive range at Deb’s fabrics we will have kits available for £115 including postage and packing, these will provide you with everything you need to make the top including borders and binding this will be sent to you in one delivery in time to start the quilt on week 1. For an additional £40 including postage you can reserve your backing fabric and this will be shipped to you to arrive on week 19.
We will be offering thread kits to help you piece and quilt your finished top in complimentary colours these can be ordered alongside your quilt and will be shipped with your kit. They will feature the wonderful Aurifil thread we have fallen in love with this year and will make your quilt look amazing. These will be available to order for £32 a saving of £4 on the RRP to buy separately.
Of course, you may decide that you want to use your own fabric stash for the quilt along, or you may be one of our international customers, so we will be selling the pattern only option for £20 as a one-off payment, you will then receive a colouring sheet and fabric requirements information in time for week 1 and then a weekly email with the cutting and piecing instructions.
However you choose to join in, we hope that you will trust in your local independent quilt shop Debs Fabrics to bring you the outstanding customer service and aftercare that you know and love and will share your progress with us on both our Facebook page and Instagram, remember you may be a lucky winner of some random acts of Christmas kindness!
