Quilting Along and Block of the Months

There is something about a quilt-along or a block of the month club that I just can't resist.  I always bite off more than I can chew, but somehow I always seem to get it done.  I think I love the challenge. And I know that I love the final product. :)

Here is what I've got going on this year.

First up, Lori Holt's "Have Yourself  a Quilty Little Christmas".  Have you seen this?  She had the cutest little quilt along during the holidays.  I just couldn't squeeze it in with all of the gifts I was trying to finish up, but couldn't wait to get started.  I have decided to change it up a little bit and make the quilt bigger by making some of the blocks into rows like her row along from a few years ago.  My goal is to finish a block or row every month and have a finished to by Christmas.  So far I have trees and gifts.  Aren't they so cute?

Next up, the Snapshots quilt along, hosted by The Fat Quarter Shop.  This looks so cute!  I decided to use up some 30's fabric that has been gathering dust in my stash for an embarrassingly long time.  My first block is done.  Such a cute cake.

Next is this star block of the month.  #starbotm
I am really excited about this one because I just love the fabrics that I have pulled!  I already can't wait until February's block comes out.

Next is a quilt along that I am doing on my own.  This is a kit that our LQS hosted about 2 years ago.  Somehow I missed it.  I've got the whole kit, and my goal is to finish a block a month.  So far, I've got  2 months done.  Woo hoo!

Finally, I am going to join in on the Twisted Irish Chain Quilt  Along.
I'm working on the fabric pull now.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow, you're going to have so many cute quilts by the end of the year! Way to go!

  2. I like having so many projects going at once so I can work on whatever best suites my mood. You've got some lovely projects to keep you happily busy!

  3. Your projects are looking great! That is my kind of busy... I am working on my own quilt along = City Girl Sew Along. Do you need another one? :-)
