Starstruck Quilt Along!!!

Today is such a great day, in fact, It's one of my favorite day's of the year!!!!!!   Today, is the announcement of this years annual Happy Quilting Quilt Along, and I am so very excited :)     And I have so wanted to make a medallion quilt as a QAL for so long and this is the year it is happening!!!  So here it is, the Starstruck Quilt Along!!!!  Isn't it just so pretty!!!! 

So like in previous years, there will be easy step by step directions, and we will be on  a weekly schedule, but each week isn't to much, and it should be very doable to keep up :)   And you can choose to do a Wall Hanging, Baby Size, Lap Size, Picnic Size, Queen Size or King Size, just by how many borders you add on to the center design ;)   So whatever size project you want to make, it's up to you and they will all be awesome!!!   

Starstruck is a Fat Quarter Friendly quilt, but it would also make a gorgeous two color quilt!!! So if that has been on your to make someday list, I will be giving the fabric requirements for that option as well.   

Be sure to pop in next Wednesday for the Fabric Requirements.  I will be showing the design in a range of colors palates to get some ideas flowing for ya all!!!   And there will be a discount on Fat Quarter Bundles shared as well for all those participating ;)  And of course, I'll reveal fabulous fabric prizes that include weekly progress prizes and Grand Prizes at the end.   The Quilt Along will run from September through October with the big Finises Parade in November and is going to be oh so great!!!  Here is the schedule . . .
