I know this may be hard to believe, but I've NEVER done an online quilt-along! I didn't even really understand what a Quilt-Along was or how I could join in until today.
I know, I know - What planet have I been living on?!
For those of you who don't know what the heck a Quilt-Along is, here's a basic rundown from what I've learned this afternoon:
Lee, the awesome blogger behind Freshly Pieced, designed an beautiful quilt pattern called Supernova. She's broken down the piecing instructions into reasonable chunks which can be finished over the next 3-4 weeks. The plans will start being posted with cutting instructions starting March 24th, but yardage requirements are already online right here.
So basically the idea is we will all follow the directions step by step with our own fabrics, post our project on her Supernova Quilt Along Flickr Group, and generally have a blast, and learn a lot while making this beautiful quilt!
I've got a stack of pretty Moda fat quarters that desperately need to see the sharp edge of my rotary cutter so I'm definitely joining in! Click here to go to the Freshly Pieced blog and learn more about the Quilt Along and the fabrics you'll need to make this quilt.
And super thank you to Gen X Quilter, AnneMarie - if you hadn't blogged about it today, I wouldn't have known about it!
Let's go quilt,
