Announcing: Our Quilt Along

Today, we have a super fun announcement to make – are you ready for it?

Quilt Along via and #quilting

That’s right!  Myself and Sarah from Becoming Martha are hosting a quilt along – and we would love to have you join us!

We will be announcing your supply list next week, and we will wait until we return from SNAP to start the first week of the process and start week 1 on May 3.  That will give you a lot of time to pick a set of patterns, order fabric if you need to, and make sure you have everything you need to create your own gorgeous quilt.

This just cracked me right up – via HandmadeRyanGosling

We know that a lot of people are intimidated by creating a quilt – and for that purpose, we have chosen a simpler pattern that offers a lot of flexibility and choice.  Please don’t be scared!  We will all be going through this together, and we are there to help each other.  In fact, we will be inviting all of the quilt along participants to a special facebook group where we can all interact, upload photos of our process, and help each other out.  Are you a quilting pro?  We would love to have you too!  Then, during the last week, we will have a big reveal party and invite everyone to link up and show their creations off!

Sound fun?  Just leave a comment with your email in case we need to contact you and invite you to join the exclusive, “cool-kids-only” Facebook group!  And grab a button while you are here to share the fun with all of your friends – make sure you invite them all to join us.  We can’t wait to start!

    Fun! Fun! Hopefully I can take on another quilting project! I have 4 in progress right now! Luckily one is almost complete!

      Four?! You are a machine! I can never focus on more than one at a time. Thankfully mine is almost complete for the QAL – otherwise, there would be nothing to post! LOL

    So excited about this Jill! I already left my email on Sarah’s page, but wanted to stop by and say how excited I am! I love quilt alongs! It’s how I made my first quilt… I might run behind since we will probably be moving in that time frame, but I’m dying to make another quilt!

    I’ve made a few quilts but not in a while. I’ll join and see if this will motivate me to do it again.

    I haven’t made a quilt for a couple of years. I need to make one for 3 of my kids! Hopefully this will get me motivated to get at least one made.:) Sounds like it will be fun. :)

    I would love to join in but my poor sewing machine is dead, if I don’t get in back from the shop in time, I will just be following along and pinning for the future!!! Looking forward to this!!

    Just dropping in from The Creative Headquarters Blog hop to make sure I am following you in all ways possible:))) I would love to also invite you to join Lets Get Social Sunday where you can link up your blog and all your social sites to make new friends and gain more followers!!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Evelyn! Do you still want an invite to the FB group? Here’s praying for your sick sewing machine!

      Yay! Will send you the FB group invite! There are all levels of expertise in that group and they are ready to get sewing!

    Count me in!! Sounds fun, I’ve never done a quilt before. Lots of small patchwork goodies, mug rugs, and purses, but I’ve always been intimidated by the real thing! Yay!
