#SMQAL (Smart Phone Quilt Along) - Week 1

smartphone quilt along

Welcome to the first installment of the Smartphone Quilt Along (#SMQAL)!

Because this is the first post for this event, we have some housekeeping to share before we get to our patterns:


About the #SMQAL
  • The #SMQAL was designed entirely by Jennifer Rowles of Playful Piecing, is being presented on fandominstitches.com and hosted by Jennifer Ofenstein.
  • You will be presented with 3 patterns per week between now and December 9, 2015. Use only the ones you want to create your own unique Smart Phone Quilt or other fun project.
  • The original layout includes 28 app blocks. Layout variations may require more or less.
  • Look for special prizes here on fandominstitches.com from Jennifer Rowles just for #SMQAL participants! Share photos of your blocks with our flickr group for a chance to win. Only #SMQAL photos posted to flickr are eligible.
  • Don't quilt alone, join for friends, fun, help & much more us as we quilt along with the #SMQAL Facebook Group!
Fabric Amounts and Other Useful Information
  • All blocks are 10" (10 1/2" unfinished)
  • The corner pieces on blocks represent background fabric. If you haven't chosen your background fabric yet, the corners can be completed at the end of the project before assembling your quilt top.
  • The original layout requires 4 1/2 to 5 yards of background fabric and 2 1/4 yards of border fabric. Amounts will vary due to paper piecing style, optional embroidery (available via #SMQAL Facebook Group) and choice of layout.
  • The original #SMQAL layout is a VERY NON-traditional quilt size of 68.5" By 132". It was designed to most accurately represent the iPhone.
  • Some blocks have very small sections in which the number is placed just outside the piece to make it readable.
  • This is Jennifer Rowles', first major event project. Please share any issues and please be kind. She has worked very hard to make this project the best it can be.
  • These patterns have all been thoroughly tested by pattern testers, however, any pattern corrections can be sent to playfulpiecing@gmail.com.
  • Like all our patterns, #SMQAL patterns are presented free for your personal, non-profit use only. Not for publication, manufacture or distribution.
Notes About Embroidery

  • This quilt CAN be completed without embroidery!
  • Blocks with embroidery come with a text template if you choose to embroider by hand.
  • Additional templates will be available for quilt details unrelated to specific blocks.
  • Embroidery files will posted #SMQAL Facebook Group. THESE ARE USE AT YOUR OWN RISK FILES! The files will are formatted as .PES for a jumbo 6.25X10.25 (160 X 260mm) hoop. Technical support or additional files formats will NOT be provided. Please remember this is a free project and one designer can only be expected to do so much.
  • Some blocks can be pieced or embroidered. Variations will be posted on Jennifer Rowle's Craftsy the same day as the fandominstitches.com post.
