Quilt Along Updates

Header graphic

Right about now I should be heading in for my surgery (thank goodness for delayed posting!), but I wanted to provide some more information about the Bloggers' Block-a-palooza quilt-along.

I've created a blog page here, which is where I am trying to keep all of the latest and greatest information about the quilt-along.

I've also created a Flickr group where all of the quilters can share their block photos, ask questions, and report on their progress. If you plan on participating in the quilt-along -- or even if you're not, but want to follow along with the fun -- please join the group here.

Compiling the fabric requirements for the quilt-along has been much trickier than I had anticipated. I hope to have final fabric requirements ready ASAP, and they will be posted both on my blog page and in the Flickr group. In the meantime, I've added some early estimates as well as the final amounts for the quilt setting, backing and binding to the blog page.

I hope to have some news about kits as soon as the fabric requirements are finalized as well. I know we're getting close to be ordering kits before our start date of 1/24, but I am hopeful that those ordering kits (if available) can quickly catch up.

If you have any other questions, please post them in the comments below, or ask your fellow quilters (and all of the other featured bloggers) in the Flickr group.
