In addition to my ongoing Do-It-Yourself quilt-along, there are a host of exciting new quilt projects to participate in for the new year. The ones below are just a few that I’ve had my eye on or am going to participate in.
Kristy from Quiet Play is hosting a paper pieced block of the month for 2013.
She has included a tutorial on paper piecing and will be showcasing her original patterns each month.
Each block pattern will be free for the current month. And the best part is – there will be prizes each month for those who participate!
Alyssa from Pile of Fabrics is also hosting a fantastic year-long project she’s calling her Skillbuilder Block of the Month.
From January-October she will demonstrate 2 blocks per month utilizing quilt-as-you-go techniques.
Then in November-December she will show how to add the borders and put on the finishing touches. And it’s Free!
Linda from Buzz-N-Bumble is hosting a blog hop in January called, “In Your Words.”
Each hop participant will show an item made from fabric with words added that tells a little bit about that person.
It will be fun to hop around, find some inspiration, and maybe even win some fabulous prizes!
For another fun January blog hop, visit Christine’s Quilt Monster in My Closet blog.
She will be posting the blog hop schedule on Sunday and it promises to be loads of fun. Do you Dare to Dresden?
And finally, Monique at Open Gate Quilts is hosting a free Blogger Girls Block of the Month series.
The block patterns are very traditional yet they can be interpreted in numerous ways.
She has posted a schedule of other bloggers who will be joining with their versions so you will get to see the blocks in lots of different colorways.
If you love to blog and hop like me, feel free to send me links to more fun events. I try to post my favorite blog quilt links each week, and I’m always on the hunt for more!
