New Year equals New Quilt Along's!!!

One of my favorite things about each January is that it means the start of so many amazing new Quilt Along's!!   But real quick, before I get into some of these amazing Quilt Along's, I know several of you have asked when I will be hosting my next Quilt Along, and the answer is, I don't have it planned yet.  But, the good news is that I have ideas starting to swirl and am tentatively thinking early Spring would be a great time to start :)     And if you have any ideas of what you would most like to learn in our annual Happy Quilting Quilt Along please leave a comment letting me know ;)

Alright, with that said, back to January's Quilt Along's!!!  I am super excited to be able to participate in 3 new Quilt Along's !!!!  I will be making all into full quilts so lots and lots of block making this year!!   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 (which I originally mentioned here ;)  is the Aurifil Designer Block of the Month!!   And I am so super excited about because I got to design one of the months blocks!!!!   The BOM this year is being done in a color wheel and you just know how I love rainbow quilts!!!  It is going to be so great!!!  A new designer will release a block on the 15th each month and I can't wait to start using up some more rainbow scrappy goodness!!    You can see all the details for this quilt along right over here at the Aurifil Buzz :)

Next up is Fat Quarter Shops annual Charity Quilt Along and this year it will benefit the Make a Wish Foundation!!    This is the third year I will be doing this Charity Quilt Along and I am just so excited to be a part of such an amazing cause :)  I just love when this love of quilting allows me to give back in some way!!   And the Quilt Along is going to be oh so much fun!!!!   This year it is all about tiny patchwork in classic blocks, I can't wait !!!   I am planning on using Desert Bloom by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda and can't wait to see those beautiful colors pop in tiny patchwork :)   The blocks will be released on the 15th of each month so the first block will be released in just 3 Days!!!  Yippee!!!  You can find all the details for the Patchwork Quilt Along right over here :)  

And finally, the Bella Skill Builder starting on February 1st and running the 1st of each month.  My good friend Sherri McConnell has designed this goregous sampler quilt in beautiful Bella Solids.  Each month a free block pattern will be released at the Jolly Jabber teaching you lots of cool new techniques.  I totally had to jump on this one because there are so many blocks in this quilt that I have wanted to try, and now I can try them all in one awesome project!!!  And ya, I plan to do a rainbow of solids, because I just can't get enough of rainbow quilts right now :)  You can find  details and a Bella kit for this quilt right over here ;) 

So ya, lots of Quilt Along fun which equals lots of quilt block goodness to share all year long!!!  So if you are looking for a new quilt along for 2017 here are a few options,   And if you do quilt along, I can't wait to see your pics.  It is always fun to quilt together ;)

Have a Happy Quilting (Along)  Day!!!

Pin It!


  1. Yay - for the quilt alongs :)! Many quilts would never have been made if it wasn't for these wonderful sew alongs. Especially looking forward to your 'Desert Bloom' blocks!

  2. I think the only QAL I'm gonna partake in this year (for now at least) is yours. AND I'm not going to allow myself to buy any fabric for it (gasp!) because I have so much already. I really need to start culling my horde down. Fabric bags for everyone! I'm really excited about yours this year, though, whatever and whenever it will happen.


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