Which One Will it Be?

Seriously, have you guys seen all the fun sew-alongs that are coming down the road?

Take a look at a few of these babies:

Sparkle QAL with Megan of Canoe Ridge Creations and Jeni of In Color Order

Made In Cherry QAL with Chelsea at Pins & Bobbins

Sew Scraps Along with Jodi at Pleasant Home

Fresh Squeezed Sew Alongs with Randi at I Have to Say

Quilt As You Go Free Motion Quilting QAL with Laura at Quokka Quilts

QAL Wednesdays with Leah Day at the Free Motion Quilting Project

And not a Sew-Along, but definitely worth checking out:
100 Days of Modern Quilts from the Modern Quilt Guild.

I'm quite confident that I'm forgetting something here as I usually do, so if there are any other fun goings-on about to start up please leave a comment letting me know! 

So are you going to participate in any of these?


  1. Wow, that is a lot! Not to mention all the swaps starting up again.

    There's a scrap attack (I think that's what she's calling it) at Stitched in Color and I think a scrap sew-a-long at the blog of whoever owns Pink Castle Fabrics. I don't follow her, but have seen enough people mention it. Scrap busting seems to be the trend this January.

    There is also another FMQ thing going on at Insights from a SoCal Girl (I think?) that I was going to do, but decided against it.

    The only one listed between your list and mine that I may do is the Sparkle one, in mini form. Which ones are you going to do?

  2. I'm doing the sew cherry one by pins and bobbins and probably the fmq'ing though not as frequently as i should..

    jenna from sew happy geek is hosting a sampler qal starting jan 3rd. that i'm also going to try and do..

    which ones(any) are you partaking in?

  3. I know I really want to do several, but I'm really concerned I won't have time!

  4. So many great quilt alongs. How will you choose?

  5. There is a Sew Happy Quilt QAL being done by the Sew Happy Geek. She has also come up with some sponsored prizes. I'm doing hers as I'm a newbie and this is a sampler type quilt that starts out simple. The link if anyone wants it is

  6. Funny - I was thinking of doing a post like this too, but you know of alot more than I do! I'm planning on doing the scrappy thing with In Color Order, & possibly the sparkle, as a mini....

  7. oh how tempting they all are... I've signed up for jenna's {sew happy geek} sampler quilt along... been scouring stash and online shops for my fabric choices... thanks for the great links
    K x

  8. Oh thanks for the Made In Cherry link - this is my plan for all my charm swap squares, and I was going to go it alone before I saw this - woop!!

  9. There's also the Finish Along with Rhonda at Quilter In The Gap. I'm doing Jenna's QAL (mentioned above) and I'm going to try the QAYGFMQQAL and possible Rachel at Stitched In Colour's Scrap Attack

  10. Great list to choose from, Toni!
    I am already signed up for the QAYGFMQAL!
    I'm all about learning FMQ this year, so I've also joined the FMQ Quilter's Challenge at SewCalGal.
    And who can resist Leah Day!!! Certainly not me!
    I'm also doing a Japanese x and + block swap organized by Isabella The Cat.

  11. I really want to do the Made in Cherry and Scrap Attacl QALS - I love QALs!!!

  12. Wow that is a great list of SALs. There are a few that I'm tempted by. Have you decided? Were you able to limit yourself to one?

  13. I want to join a qal this month, but I haven't seen one I really want to make, yet. Watch, I'll probably like them all after I see everyone else's pretty quilts. :D

  14. That's quite a list - thanks for all the links!

  15. Thanks for all the links - I had no idea about most of them!
