Quilt Alongs for 2012

I really wasn't going to participate in any quilt alongs this year. But what's a girl to do when 2 quilt alongs pop up, for quilts I had already planned on making this year!?!

Made In Cherry Quilt Along

Chelsea is putting together the Made In Cherry quilt along using Sarah Fielke's pattern (free on the Lecien website). I got to see Sarah's quilts, made from her new line St. Ives, at Fall Quilt Market... and what a fun set of quilts these are!

And while I have a fat quarter set of St. Ives, I've decided to use a different fabric line... Swoon by Melissa Averinos (Yummy Goods). Still thinking about the background fabric... maybe Moda Crossweave in Tan.


Swoon-along

Katy is hosting a Swoon-along using Camille's Swoon pattern. I've made one of these blocks before... turned it into a mini-quilt for a swap. The blocks do take a fair amount of time, but WOW are they impressive in person.

For this one I'm going to use Sweetwater's Hometown collection, along with a little Moda Bella in White.


So how about you... any quilt alongs planned for the new year?

I'm going to Swoon-along but will be joining in after we return from our time in the South. I think I have my fabric already chosen. Off to check out the Cherry one you are doing.

I'm doing both too! I'm using Sunny Happy Skies for the made in cherry quilt. I'm nt sure about the other fabric yet.

Chelsea said...

I love your fabric choices for both! And I'm so tempted to do the swoon along, even though I haven't quilted my first swoon yet!

I'm doing both quiltalongs too - maybe we are just suckers for star quilts? I want to do one Swoon block per month... but I don't know how supportive that quiltalong is going to be as far as encouraging progress.

Stopping to say hi - I am doing the Made in Cherry Quilt along, too.
