It's That Time of Year - Quilt Along's!!!!!

One of my favorite things about January is the start of so many amazing Quilt Along's   Now before I get into some of these amazing Quilt Along's, a quick note.  I know several of you have asked when I will be hosting my next Quilt Along, and the answer is, I am not sure yet.  But no worries, I am totally plan on doing one and I am tentatively thinking around Spring . . . so know that it will be coming :)     Alright, with that said, back to January's Quilt Alongs!!!

I am super excited to be able to participate in 4 new Quilt Alongs !!!!  Some I am participating by guest posting a day of the quilt-along and some I am making the full quilts.   It is going to be so much fun and I would love it if you wanted to quilt along with me in one, or two, or however many you can squeeze in ;)

The first Quilt-Along is the Splendid Sampler.  This is the project of the amazing Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.   They have gathered together 81 designers who have each designed a block to share!!!  The Quilt Along will be mystery as two new blocks are revealed each week.  It's going to be a 100 Block Adventure starting on February 14th and sure to be a whole lot of fun!!!!  If this sounds like the Quilt-Along for you, you can find more details at the Splendid Sampler Website and join the Facebook Group as well ;)  My block is actually slated to be the first block shared, so that is all kinds of exciting (and scary) at the same time ;)

The Bloom Sew Along is starting today!!!!   This is an adorable quilt designed by Lori Holt using her amazing Sew Simple Shapes templates.   I am so excited to be guest posting on one of the blocks and I can't wait to share it.  You all know how much I love applique!!!  Lori is an amazing teacher and will walk you through every step of the way!!!  It is going to be so much fun!!!   Be sure to pop on over and see the intro post today with all of the details ;)

So if you haven't seen the Moda All-Stars All in a Row book you totally need to check it out.   It is so fun!!!  I was lucky enough to make one of the gallery quilts in the book (which I realized I haven't shared yet, I need to do that :)  and had so much fun making up each of the rows.  So when I heard that Moda was going to do a Row-Along I was totally up for it!!!  My plan is to make a new Christmas Row Quilt and I am sew excited!!!   The Row Along starts February 1st and starting today the designers are sharing each other rows as a kick off.  Find all all of the details over at the Moda Cutting Table blog!!! 

And finally, the Crossroads Quilt Along started on Friday.  I posted then  about this amazing Quilt Along that benefits the March of Dimes but wanted to include it in this list ;)   I am sewing my quilt in Strawberry Fields Revisited, just like the original.  I just love those soft Figgy Colors!!!  You can find all of the details about this gorgeous quilt for an amazing cause at the Crossroads Quilt Along Page.  

So ya, lots of Quilt Along fun!!!   I am hoping to do some of the cutting for these today so I should have lots to share soon ;)  And I hope to be able to see your shares from these fun Quilt-Alongs too.  It is always fun to quilt together ;)

Have a Happy Quilting (Along)  Day!!!

Pin It!


  1. liked the bloom quilt but to spend $33 for the template was a bit much.

  2. I'm super excited about the splendid sampler quilt along. I've been saving 6" quilt block patterns on pinterest to one day make a sampler quilt!

  3. I am overwhelmed by all the quilt alongs I want to do, not to mention the BOMs I have committed to. It's a happy thing, though! See you soon at Winterquiltfest. :-)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
