Coming in January ...

Header graphic

By now, many of you are busy making the final push towards the holidays. But what are your crafty plans as we enter 2011? Well, clear your plate, because we have a great quilt-along planned that will begin in January!

18 quilt bloggers have collaborated to bring you the first-ever Bloggers' Block-a-palooza. We'll jump from blog to blog making 2 quilt blocks per week, wrapping up with a custom setting and layout design to help complete your quilt. I am so excited to be one of the participating bloggers.

We're calling this quilt-along "Waiting for Spring" because we'll be using the brand new Sunkissed line by Sweetwater for Moda, and the bright colors and botanical prints should help you (or at least those of you in the Northern hemisphere!) push through the cold winter months and have a fresh new quilt ready for the Spring.

More details will be available soon, but in the meantime feel free to grab our button below and spread the word.

Edited to add: click on my blog page here to learn more. I'll be adding information as it becomes available. I have already attempted to answer a few frequently asked questions!

Grab our button!

  1. I would be great if we could already know what yardage we need for it so we could ask for Christmas.

  2. Sounds like fun! I was also wondering if we could find out how much fabric we will need? That is something I would need to order. It's not available at my LQS.

  9. Will these block be easy enough for a beginner? I have never quilted but this sounds like fun and I think I just might try it. What sort of fabric amount will we need?

  10. I see several people have asked, but what should we get to prepare - a jelly roll, fat quarter bundle, yard of each fabric in the line, etc?

    Thanks! Looking forward to it!

  12. John, I have been following your blog even before I joined the Modern Guild in CH this year. I am looking forward to your project. Don't know how to grab the button. But I will try to figure it out. Happy Holidays.

  14. Hey John! I'm still trying to finish up a quilt-along I joined 2 years ago (the Star Quilt that AmandaJean had going...!) Anyway - I could use some help finding a little bit more of the fabric I was using... could you take a peek at my blog and see if you recognize that pink paisley? I don't have any good info from the selvage edge except it says "Hi-Fashion Fabrics"... and then "Fleur...." Ugh.
