Clearly my button making needs some work!

Thank you to everyone who showed an interest in having a little quilt along after seeing my quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  The time is finally here!

Blue OBW w/seagull


Here's what you need to know - besides being beginner friendly, this pattern is FUN.

Schedule:

September 26th - welcome post with mini interview with Maxine Rosenthal (one of the authors) 
October 17th - Linky opens
October 31st - Linky closes, voting opens
November 7th - prizes awarded!

Materials Needed (affiliate links):
** The Creative Grids 60 degree ruler has a little notch at the top of the triangle that makes piecing easier.  If you are worried about buying "another ruler" and that it might not get much use after this QAL, don't worry!  There are tons of things you can do with this ruler.  Triangles, diamonds, hexies, oh my!  In fact, I posted a small project tutorial HERE that uses this ruler.  So go check it out.

Prizes:

This is a self-sponsored QAL, so it is mostly just for fun, but I think a couple of prizes should be in order for all your hard work.  Thus, I would like to give away 2 prizes!  One for the crowd favorite (as voted on by you), and one for the "Most Amazing Transformation" of fabric.  I'm going to pick that one based on what the fabric looked like to begin with (whole) and what it looked like after the OBW process.  You will have to have a FINISHED quilt TOP to enter.  Both prizes will be $25 Gift Certificates to the Intrepid Thread (one of my favorite online fabric shops).

I hope you will join us!

PS. Here's my finished top from the Quilt Along.

  1. My daughter isn't a quilter, but she does have a good 'eye'. So I am handing her the books and telling her to help me select fabric this weekend when we go to a new fabric store. Only problem is that she usually adds to my pile of projects all in the name of the 'baby'.

  2. Having trouble finding the fabric selection tips post - can anyone help?

    1. Sorry folks! I set it to automatically publish, but it didn't for some reason. It is up now!

  3. Is there any chance you can keep the linky open for a few more days? Like, through the weekend? I need one more weekend!

  4. What time does the linky close tomorrow?

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
