    Quilt Along January 2013

    Hi everyone, hope the holidays are finding you stress free, or with less stress than usual. In January I will be starting a Quilt Along and I would love for you all to join me. The information is posted below:

    Quilt Along to start in January:
    Friday January 4, 2013
    8:30 - 9:30 PM in the chat room
    Each week there is a choice of 2 blocks, one easy and one more challenging.
    We meet in the chatroom between 8:30 - 9:30 to chat and discuss the blocks we are working on, answer any questions or to help those who need some help.
    Every 3rd week is a catch up week for those who may have gotten too busy to do their blocks.
    Pictures will be posted each week of the members finished block and at the end of the Quilt Along a picture of the finished top
    Members who are involved will vote on what blocks we work on every 3rd week for the following 2 weeks.
    Nothing other than information and friendship will be exchanged..

    This weekend I will be posting a list of the blocks that we will be working on. If anyone has any suggestions for a block or any questions feel free to drop me a line.

    Looking forward to chatting and quilting with everyone who joins..

    I hope to join in...

    where will the pictures and directions be posted? And what if I miss a week? Can I still keep up? How big will the blocks be? This sounds like fun.

    Hi Hope. All links for the pattern will be posted here. Every third week we will have a catch up week where no block will be worked, it's going to be a catch up week and a chance to really chat and see how everything is going, discuss colors they are using in their quilts, ideas and whatever else people choose to talk about. I am aiming to have all the blocks be 12 inches so that we all get a decent sized couch quilt to cozy up under...

    If you have any ideas for a pattern block that maybe you want to try let me know and I will add it to the list that I have started.

    I am excited to start. No great blocks come to mind yet for suggestions. I am already thinking about fabrics.

    Hi Rosie,
    This will end up being sort of a sampler quilt? Is there a theme to the blocks being chosen? Stars, 9 patch variations, etc?

    Hi Rosie,
    This is a nice idea...quilting with friends without leaving home and having to pack up to go anywhere....my block suggestion is Crossed Canoes...this is a bit more challenging than some basic blocks and works well as a contemporary or traditional block...I can send the pattern if you need it.
    Looking forward to this and have to remember to put it on my calendar.

    I hope to join in. Will at least give it a shot. Would like to learn different blocks as I have not made a variety, just uncertain of myself. Thanks for putting this together.
    Happy Quilting!

    Can we join this without going to the chat room? Not a good time for me.

    This looks like something I might add to my New Year's resolutions list. I am not so sure about the chat room thing though. Someone will have to explain that to me. So long as "DWTS" doesn't come on while I am in the chat room.....
    Make every day count for something!

    What does "DWTS" mean? Would like to try this but I am not familiar with the "chat room". How does it work?

    Would also like to join in.....would it be a requirement to post your blocks? I have absolutely no knowledge of how to do this, or camera, etc. Please post the chat room time for us CSTer's. Also, maybe a hint or two about the chat room. This is definitely a learn as you go experience for me.....but, I love it.
    Be watching for more info. Merry Christmas to all or Happy Holidays.

    I will probably follow along and post pics etc here but a chat room no. I am happy with the forum style myself. I am good at simple blocks. The greek cross is my new favorite any block with no more than four sub squares across.. get to six rows and I am not having a good time. This sounds like a sampler quilt I think as your open to voting for new blocks? It is very good of you to start a thread however. We all enjoy them but few of us run them. How many weeks are you thinking/ you mentioned couch throw so it will be approx how many squares across down? thanks!!!

    I will follow along to as time permits but not a "chat room" person. This would be a good way of destashing in 2013.

    Hi everyone, sorry I didn't get in here yesterday, very busy and today I took a class for a Bargello quilt.

    Playswithcolor - This will be a sampler, but I am not sure we are going to have a theme.

    JudyVA - Please send that block on if you have a pattern that everyone can view, thanks.

    Pdcatc and Loria183 - Yes, this will be eastern time so 5:30 pacific.

    PokerDiva - Absolutely, just remember to try and post your finished work.

    Oldtnquiltinglady - I m suyre we could hepl you find the chat so you can join us to try it out.

    JustBarb - It's not a requirement to post, would be nice, but if you can't it's all good. If you have blocks with patterns that everyone can view, that would be great. I'm thinking we will finish out somewhere between a 4x6 or a 5x6.

    Happyjar and Vickg626 - Not a problem.

    Nancy - It's a good way to try new things, just remember there will be 2 blocks posted per week, one easy and one challenging, you choose which you would like to do.

    Later tonight when I get home from dinner with hubby and friends I will post JUST ONE of the first weeks blocks for those who want to play along can get an idea of where we might and can go with our quilts.

    Also, thank you all for being interested in this. It was an idea that I thought might work, this is my first time trying something like this so please bear with me as I work out kinks along the way.

    Is there anyway you can make the print LARGER on your first post here? I can barely read it and I have good eyes. Thanks

    I would like to follow along also but do not do chat rooms. This is a great idea to get us out of a rout if we are in one.

    I would like to join, I'm also not sure about chat or the time, but it sounds like we don't have to do chat or show pics. Thanks for doing this.
