Happy New Year!!
Well, Quilt Alonger’s it’s the last parade of the year. I finished up my blocks. Here is the star block and I can’t find my other one. It got “put somewhere where I would remember it was” when I was house cleaning and believe it or not, I have not clue where it is…can you imagine that??
So many have asked if we are doing something in 2013. The answer is yes. We’ll be making this quilt for the Quilt Along. It’s “Pieceful Nights” by Lori Smith, the same designer of the Quilt Square patterns we have been working with this year.
We’ll be making one or two blocks a month working so that we can finish the blocks by the end the year. My daughter Kelli will be doing most of the work with organizing this for the blog. The quilt finishes at 63 1/2″ x 63 1/2″. If you love the “Quilt Square” idea, you can make the blocks and finish them each month like we did with this year’s squares. To get a start, you can get your pattern from Country Threads by following this link to their site. (Keep in mind that your shipping will be adjusted to actual shipping once the order is placed.) For January, make the quilt block in the upper left hand corner.
While Kelli is working on and hosting that project, I will be working on this project and I invited you all to “wool along” with me. This too is a Lori Smith pattern, “Fit to Frame Pattern #6”.
It is done here in cottons, but my plan is to do it in woolens. I saw it done in wools and it was a beauty. Whoever wants to “Wool Along” with me can…or if you’re brave enough to applique in cottons, you’re welcome to do that too. We’ll be doing one block a month which should be manageable. Country Threads also has this pattern available. You can find it here. Start by making the block in the lower left hand corner. Keep watching the blog and we’ll keep you posted on when your block needs to be finished. Right now, we think we’ll be checking in every other month with both of projects.
Feel free to join one or both of the projects.
Now for your December Quilt Along Parade:
Nancy in PA sent in her blocks…yep, she did both blocks.
She also sent a picture with all of her blocks! That’s a great accomplishment!
