Firefly (or Bees!) Sewalong

Exciting news! My FireFly pattern, with bonus Bee Block instructions, releases next month through Pattern Drop! Can't believe it! Annnndddd, did you hear?? Pattern Drop is hosting a sewalong for the pattern this summer too! Yay! I posted the schedule for the sewalong at the end of this post! 




For anyone wondering - what the heck is Pattern Drop?? It is a subscription-based pattern club! You can sign up for a 12 or 6-month subscription and every month an awesome digital pattern is sent to you + other goodies! And, because of the sewalong, Pattern Drop has made the Firefly pattern available to purchase individually! You can pre-order the pattern right now, by following the link HERE.




All the information you need about the sewalong + purchasing the pattern can be found over at Pattern Drop (Click HERE to go directly to it)! And if you purchase the 6-month membership to Pattern Drop, make sure to use the coupon code 1FREEPENANDPAPER and get one of those months free! 




If you're wanting to make your Firefly quilt similar to the sample, you can purchase quilt kits through Fabric Bubb or Sewtopia!

  1. I love this pattern, so clever & striking! We don’t have fireflys in the uk but with the bee option I’m even more keen to try this! I was thinking that doing this sewalong would also be a great chance to do a wee project with my 4 year old about the importance of bees & preserving their habitat - I’ve definitely not seen as many bees this year sadly.

  2. I just purchased this pattern. Will the pattern have multiple sizes? I'm hoping to make a crib size version. Looking forward to the Quilt Along :)
