It’s NOT a Sew Along… it’s even better!
Are you ready for a new kind of sew along?! Over the next 8 weeks, let’s quilt together – but you’re not limited to just one pattern! Now introducing:
The Homemade Emily Jane Summer Quilting Challenge!
This challenge is all about sharing progress photos of your quilts using any of the Homemade Emily Jane quilt designs. Simply use #HomemadeEmilyJanePatterns when you post on Instagram and you’ll be entered to win weekly prizes and have a chance to be featured in my Instagram stories!
There will be fun and there will definitely be prizes! I’m lining up all the prizes now and I seriously cannot wait to share them with some lucky winners!
Summer Quilting Challenge Schedule
The challenge begins now and lasts until August 9th, 2021! Feel free to join in and participate for as many weeks as your schedule allows. There’s no requirement to post every week, but I will select prize winners from anyone who has participated by posting that week.

To be eligible to win a prize, you’ll simply share your progress on any Homemade Emily Jane pattern to Instagram and use the hashtag #HomemadeEmilyJanePatterns. I’ll select a random winner for each prize. If you don’t have an Instagram account yet, now is the time to make one!
Each photo you post is 1 entry to win a prize and you can post up to 3 times per week if you wish. All photos must be showing progress on your quilt using a Homemade Emily Jane Pattern. It can be any of the 8 patterns in my shop or the free Explore pattern (download here!) Each week I will pick a winner to get a prize! The prizes are a mix of fabric bundles, sewing notions, and I’ll have PDF quilt patterns for our international friends!
In addition to using the official hashtag #HomemadeEmilyJanePatterns, you can also choose to use #HomemadeEmilyJane along with the specific quilt hashtag for the pattern you are making – example: #CirrusQuilt #ConnectorQuilt, etc. You can also tag me in the photo too! 🙂
