Raspberry Roundabout

We are so excited to have you join use for the Raspberry Roundabout Quilt Along. This Quilt Along is part of Hoffman’s Palette of the Season for Winter 2024. 

When does it start?

The QAL starts April 1st (or as soon as Hoffman posts the pattern)!  So the first step is to download the FREE pattern from the Hoffman website and purchase your fabric. Fabric bundles are shipping to local quilt shops soon. But the beauty of this pattern is that the fabrics are part of Hoffman’s Watercolor collection, which is always available!

What is the schedule?

We are going to provide a new block each week to complete the quilt. Do not feel rushed! We know that some people work quickly, and some take their time. The tutorials are not going to disappear. 

Can anyone join?

Yes – anyone can join. The pattern is free but has to be downloaded from the Hoffman website. The pattern uses traditional piecing and fusible applique. To ensure you get reminders of the tips and tricks for the QAL, please be sure to sign-up for the mailing list

What does the mailing list get me?

The mailing list will provide reminder links to videos tutorials of the blocks. We will also provide links to Stitching Thyme, our Facebook page. Each Wednesday at 3 Eastern Standard Time, we provide time for you to chat and ask questions. 

Also, we watch this page for questions and comments during the week to provide help.

Are there any giveaways?

Yes! That is half the fun. Each week, we will have a random drawing. To be eligible, you need to post your progress on Instagram or in Facebook with their progress and tags #raspberryroundaboutqal



The fabrics are being shipped to shops in April! So be sure to look for kits or yardage of the following fabrics. 

In addition to the fabrics you see here, you will need

  • Backing fabric
  • Batting
  • Light colored thread for piecing 
  • Coordinating thread for applique
  • Light weight fusible – like Misty Fuse
  • Freezer paper
  • Iron
  • Removable marker – I recommend air erase markers
  • Quilt rulers 
  • Rotary cutter and mat
  • Applique scissors


Let’s have some fun making this together! 

I will share tips and tricks as we go. Will you share your ideas too.

Together, we will make something truly festive.
