    "Spike Your English" Block of the Month Quilt-Along

    Mark your calenders,

    A new 'SYE" Quiltalong will be starting September 3, 2013

    On this quiltalong we'll be making a total of twelve 16" x 14" rectangular blocks.

    Two a month with the exception of December. all of these blocks are paperpieced.

    This is sort of a mystery as we don't know the layout for the quilt.

    The patterns for these blocks can be downloaded "free" from www.quiltingonthesquare.com.
    Blocks April thru August are posted in their BOM section.
    Permission has been given from the website.

    This is for all levels of sewing...no sign up, Do it at your own pace.
    Lots of support & fun with this group.
    Come take a look..better yet..join us in this new venture !

    Startng September 3, 2013, there will be a new thread every month where we will discuss our progress & post the photos of the blocks that will be assigned for that month.
    Please do not post any photos of blocks that are not assigned for that month.

    Until the official start of this journey on Sept 3, 2013 we will all communicate in this thread.
    Please, no posting of additional threads related to this by anyone other than myself...It becomes to confusing for anyone trying to find the correct thread..

    I believe I've covered all "bases" and it's time to begin our journey...Honchey

    Yup! Count me in too!!
    Thanks Honchey ... for taking up the task of being the fearless leader, yet again!


    Akweiland ... atta girl! That's the way I learned how to PP, I found something I wanted to do and jumped right in. If you want to practice, I started with the basic instructions here ...
    http://www.quilterscache.com/StartQu...tingthree.html
    And then practiced with these ...

    Then jumped right into the main project, my Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt!

    Wow Carrie, you're fast! I didn't even look for fabric. I saw yours in the other thread, I love your choice! I'm having so many projects going right now, I just might have to go on an FART for this one

    I'm in!! Yinz got me hooked on paperpiecing so I can't pass this up. I love how the blocks are an odd size; I may not make another large quilt but I think they'd make beautiful bed runners, table runners, wall hangings, etc.

    Thank you, Ms. Honchey for leading us on another ride--look forward to it!

    CarrieM ... maybe you'd like to post your fabrics for everyone to see?

    I have no clue what fabrics I am going to go with ... I keep changing my mind as to colours!

    Count me in, Honchey! Akweiland...PP can have it's frustrations but the finished product really is worth the effort. I don't know what fabric I will be using either. I do like what Carrie has chosen and Mirabelle's are so different. endless possibilities.
    OK and Dibib...so glad you are keeping in touch and you know what will happen if you linger around the edge of a hole...pit....too long???.....you fall in! Like JanRN said, these blocks can so easily be used for smaller individual projects.

    My fabrics for those who haven't seen them...I've added a couple and taken a couple out, but this gives you an idea...all have metalic gold on them.

    Welcome to all. Several of us have done other quilt-alongs together here on the board thanks to Honchey who keeps us moving forward by posting new threads and encouraging us.

    Hi Everyone & Welcome... A very nice showing of "hands" today..so far we have 11 including myself...

    Carriem, very nice array of fabrics..can't wait to see them in a block.. I think I will "shop" for this one...

    Jan, I think a bed runner with a set of shams would be a great way to use these blocks...

    How about a table runner in Christmas Fabrics...the points in the blocks remind me of Pointsettias...Hmmm...

    I'm sorry, I couldn't find the right blocks. Are some of them already posted under their BOM section? Are they named "SYE"? Thank you.

    CindyA, look at the bottom of the page for the "Loosy Goosy" and click on it and all the blocks come up. I have copied all of them and will probably join up too.

    I'm in too! I have bought some fabric, and picked out others from my stash. I still need to get my white on white and am wondering how much I should get. Do you think two yards would be enough??? I am getting one yard pieces of the fabrics, as I want to use the same fabrics for all the blocks, and those blocks are pretty big!

    CindyA - this link will take you to the SYE BOM:

    I've printed the patterns, so that means I'm in also. Welcome to the newcomers on this journey.

    Jeanie--I got 2 yards of my background (white on white)...there isn't a lot used so think it will be plenty. I got FQs for my other fabrics.

    GrannyQ--so happy you can join us.

    I "shopped" for my fabric in my DD's stash I plan on adding a dark purple for a little more contrast and may do some fussy cutting of the larger print. So much fun ahead of us
