Roundabout Quilt-Along!!!

It's Here!!!   Are you ready to Quilt-Along with me???   I am just thrilled this morning to share the design for this years annual Happy Quilting Quilt-Along :)   So without further ado . . . Here's the Roundabout Quilt-Along!!!!

I am so very excited for this Quilt-Along!!!  It is going to be so much fun :) Just like in previous Quilt-Along's, there will be easy step-by-step bi-weekly directions, lots of block sizes and layout options, gorgeous (and I might add endless) fabric options, fabulous prizes that include weekly progress prizes and Grand Prizes at the end, but most importantly lots of fabric fun with friends!!!  And as you can see, we are playing with curves again, but no worries if you are new to curves,  I'll show you just how fun they can be ;)

The Quilt-Along will start next Wednesday and run until the end of November with the Parade in December.  That means everyone will have a finish just in time for Christmas and what better Christmas present to tuck under the tree for yourself!!!  Here is the schedule . . .

Pin It!


  1. I want to Quilt-A-long, but I have no idea how to "grab a button." Could someone tell me, or point me to a tutorial? Thanks! Utahoosier at yahoo dot coim

    1. I clicked on the square, stamp like button above and it put me into the Quilt a long.

  2. Looks fun, and my sewing room is almost together so I think I can actually do it!! now to decide what fabrics to use. :-) Hugs, H

  3. I would love to join the QAL! Is it possible to still join in if I want to use the pattern for a table runner? The smaller size is perfect for the time I have in the next few months.

  4. Ooooh I L O V E this quilt so much!!! I already know what fabric I'm going to use, and with bub number 5 just hitting 4 1/2 months now, I'm feeling a little more human. I am soooo excited for this quilt!

  5. Hallelujah! No wonder I've been feeling at loose ends lately, there was a QAL floating around in the air. So ready to sew!

  6. Oh, I am so in!!! What a stunning use of secondary pattern! I look forward to getting started at the end of the month!

  7. I have saved your button, and going to try to follow along and quilt along too.

  8. I have added the button to the blog; I can't make it work for the sidebar. But I am looking forward to it. Thank you.

  9. Looks like fun! Looking forward to it.

  10. What a pretty pattern. I've been thinking about a quilt for a while now. Might just go ahead and make it happen!

  11. Looks like fun, Melissa. I'm not very good at keeping up with QALs, but it will be fun to watch.

  12. This looks like fun. I'll see what fabrics I can find.

  13. Melissa - it made just be me but I couldn't get the button to work. I'll try again later. In the meanwhile I did post about your quilt-a-long.

  14. Looks gorgeous but I couldn't get the button to work either to see the fabric requirements ??


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