So let's see here, what can I tell you that will get you interested to join this particular Quilt-A-Long???
1 - It is super beginner friendly but still a lot of fun for experience quilter's alike.
2 - You will learn some fun techniques for saving time and I promise to do all the math :)
3 - It will last about a month to 6 weeks
(I am due on the 25th of September so I am hoping to finish before then :)
4 - It is being sponosored by the Fat Quarter Shop and they will be having amazing discounts available if you want to do it in the same fabric that I am using. Yippee Skippee for Discounts!!!
5. Oh yes, and you might ask, "What fabric will I be using that you can get a discount on??" Well it is none other than the amazing Joel Dewberry Heirloom which I have been drooling over for a month!!! I am using the Ruby colorway, you can choose whichever color-way you like best!!!
6 - Oh, have I mentioned . . . Fat Quarter Shop will be giving away 3 $50 Gift Certificates as prizes that you are eligible to win if . . . you complete your quilt top!!! 3 , yes count them, 1, 2, 3, people will be walking away from the Quilt-A-Long with $50.00 to spend at The Fat Quarter Shop!!! Oh my, what I could do with that :)
7 - And last, but certainly not least, how cute is this quilt!!! It is a queen size. (but you can always go smaller if you like by doing fewer blocks :) This is the basic concept, we will be changing up the angles and sizes a bit so that everyone's is unique . . .but it gives you the concept. And personally, I think it happens to be a pretty stinking cute and fun concept :) (Although, I might be a bit bias)
So are you interested??? Do you want to Quilt-A-Long???? If so, be sure to grab a button and join our Flickr Group!!!! (It is so great to see everyone's progress) Oh, and you can leave a comment too, it will be fun to see how many might be joining us :) Then make sure to come back on August 8th when the fun all begins!!!!
EDIT *** I will be announcing the fabric requirements on the 8th and giving the discount code for fabric at the Fat Quarter Shop. I will then give you a week before we actually start sewing to get all of your fabric together so no need to worry about that yet. I just wanted to let you all know about the quilt-a-long a few days early so you would have time to think about it and get excited :)
