With the soon-to-be-completed craft room downstairs coming ever-closer to reality, I've decided to try an online Quilt Along that I learned about after reading about it on a post on one of the many quilting/sewing blogs I follow - Hooked on Needles. I'm a bit worried it might be too much for a true beginner here, but it's a good excuse to make myself do some cutting and sewing -- and it's great practice. So starting in a few weeks, I'm going to get started on the Moose on the Porch Quilts Layer Cake Quilt Along 2010! It runs through May 2011, with new blocks posted every other week.
- 1 Layer Cake (or 12 fat quarters)
- 1 1/2 yards accent fabric
- 1 2/3 yards outer border
- 4 yards backing
- 2/3 yards binding
So keep an eye on the blog for quilting action shots! We'll see if I can put that new craft room to good use...
