Starting in April 2022, we will sew our quilts together. There will be weekly newsletters with tips and video tutorials for some techniques; there will be 3 different sizes you can make and a few giveaways for those on the newsletter list.

Sisterhood: The Quilt

The Sisterhood quilt celebrates women who have been an important and influential part of our lives. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and friends who are our support system.


Women who have supported us, nurtured us, laughed and cried with us. Women who we value and love.


We have taken 30 quilt blocks and renamed them with the names of all these wonderful women. In the newsletters during the quilt along, we will share a little story about each of these women that have shaped and influenced us.

Sisterhood FAQs:

  • Do I need to purchase the quilt to participate?
    • You are welcome to sign up for the quilt along and enjoy all of the useful technique demos and information, but you will need to purchase the pattern to make the quilt.
  • What is the cost for the quilt along?
    • It’s free to sign up for the newsletter series.  But…..if you want to make the quilt, you will need to purchase the pattern.
  • What tools do I need?
    • The pattern includes instructions to make the blocks using standard rotary rulers, but there are also Studio 180 friendly options.  Choose the method and tool that works best for you.
      • Recommended Studio 180 Tools:
        • Tucker Trimmer 1
        • Wing Clipper
        • Split Rects
      • Not required but VERY useful

    • For ALL quilters, it is strongly recommended you have rulers that have ⅛” markings


Skill Level: Intermediate


While the pattern is written for the intermediate quilter, this pattern can be

A wonderful skill builder for the quilter ready to take on the challenge.  The 

  Blocks range in complexity, but use many common units.  Helpful tips and  

Video demonstrations will be part of the quilt along (another great reason to sign up!)



The Sisterhood Quilt Pattern offers three different size options, each using the same 30 star blocks.  For the traditional quilter, we have designed a charming lap quilt that finishes at 67” x 80”.  There are two more contemporary layout options, each with some negative space.  One finishes at 83” x 93”, while the largest is 90” x 94”.  And of course, any of them can easily be made larger by simply adding borders!

You will need to purchase the Sisterhood quilt pattern (available in print or pdf) to be able to make the quilt.  We had hoped to have the print pattern available now, but it is backordered.  We are happy to accept preorders now!  Patterns will ship as soon as they arrive.
