Quilt along schedule of events
Here is how the quilt along will work:
Week 1: Gathering of supplies.
Week 2: Cutting the fabric.
Week 3: Sewing the blocks and trimming them to size.
Week 4: Assembly of quilt top.
Week 5: Quilting the top, batting and backing.
Week 6: Binding.
Each week I will give full instructions and then you will have the whole week to get it done. Easy enough, right?
Also, each week I will give quilting related stuff away that sort of corresponds to that week's work. For example, since this week will be getting all the supplies around that you will need to make a quilt, I will be giving away rotary cutters, cutting mats and straight edges. More on that later.
At the end of 6 weeks you'll have a completed quilt. And at the end of 6 weeks I'll give away the big daddy of all prizes . . . a Janome 6600P sewing machine.
Can I get a Boo-Ya?? I said a Boom-Chica-Boom . . . Boom-Chica-Boom . . .
Sorry. I'm excited.
I'll try to settle down now.
Listen closely to this part. Post photos of your progress and completed quilt here in the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along 2009 Flickr group and you'll earn FIFTY extra chances at the Janome 6600P.
Still with me? Make your quilt and post photos in the Flickr group using Flights of Fancy fabric and you'll earn ONE HUNDRED extra chances at the Janome 6600P.
I'll be back later today with the supply list and instructions for week one. Cause I have to take the kids to school. Go to the gym. Shower. Take some photos. And write the instructions.
No I haven't done it all beforehand. Maybe I should have. That would have been smart. But I want it all to be in real time. I want to quilt right along with you. That is how I roll people!
