Quilt along with chance for BIG prizes




Beginning Monday, I will be starting a 6 week quilt along. I am hoping that you'll join me because it will be lots of fun.

And cause I'll be using fabric from Paula Prass for Michael Miller Fabrics called Flights of Fancy.

And cause there will be lots of prizes along the way.

And cause at the end of it all I'm going to give away a Janome 6600.

And if I get lots and lots of comments then I'll give away my quilt too.

Won't you join the fun?

melissa s. said...

Frogdancer said...

I'm already doing a quilt a long with crazy Mom Quilts, but I'll be observing with interest what you have in mind. We're heading rapidly into winter here in Australia, so the more quilts, the merrier!

Shabby Raggy Roses said...

I would love to join you on your 'Quilt Along'. Any excuse to sew is fine by me! Can't wait to see more!
Best wishes,
Jenelle

brown robin said...

Oh me, Oh my! I don't know exactly what a quilt along is, but as I listen to Ryan Adams on your blog.... I just might be game. Loved what you had to say about daisies. Flowers, music, fabric, being outside, being with my kids... it gives me the juice I need. Thanks for your energy and enthusiasm... you add to the beauty of this world.

kiddlebug said...

Love that fabric choice. I've been drooling over it lately.

OsageBluffquilter said...

HOLY MOLY, I will be back Monday. See ya then!

Sarcastic Quilter said...

Oh, I'm glad I happened upon your blog today! I'm in. I need a "me" project to piece since my kids' quilts are being worked through on the frame now and I'm done with the "for everyone else" quilt tops for hte moment. Woo-hoo!

Beck

Adina said...

Why is it that I'm always afraid to commit to quilt-alongs? Well this time maybe because I'll be moving in a couple of weeks and YET since I will be moving in a couple of weeks this would be my only chance at a new sewing machine for a while. So here I go!

CJ said...

I wanna play!

Marj said...

Sounds like fun, let me know what I need to do to participate.

Ashley said...

I am a new quilter so as long as it is not too complicated I would love to join in. :)

Looking forward to a Flight of Fancy with you for the next six weeks!
AWESOME giveaway!

Trish said...

This looks like it could be a lot of fun. Kind of like a mystery quilt!!

Zeynep said...

Please count me in. Love your quilts. Looks like next six weeks will be a lot of fun!

Anonymous said...

So I assume Janome is sponsoring this? Are you being paid? Are you being paid by Michael Miller?

Have you considered being transparent about this?

Melissa said...

I need some kind of help... especially with kiddos underfoot now that school's out... Count me in.

Kim said...

Oooh, fun! I've been looking for a new quilt project, and I'll have to make up for being late! :)
Here's my encouragement for everyone to join in: I have a janome 6600p and I LOOOOOOOVE it (and I won it in a contest, too!) Let's get stitching!

Jane said...

Well, imagine all the sewing I would accomplish on a new machine!! Bliss. I am trying to finish a quilt right now so this is going to help, I just need to find the time :).

Isa said...

Ohh, I just found this quilt along. I'm totaly in! I just need to catch up :-)

I just found this today too. I'll catch up this weekend. Count me in too! I'm already set up on flicker, I'll join the group right away.

Gammie said...

I just came across your blog and want to say "Thank You". I have always wanted to learn how to make a quilt, a real quilt that I may one day pass down to my grandchildren.

As the mother of a disabled young adult, crafting is my therapy. I look forward to your weekly instructions =)

msalleycat said...

I think I am ready for my first real quilt-along. And this one sounds fabulous!

Dawn said...

Sounds like fun. Can't wait, have fabric that's waiting to be used!

Gray Matters said...

Getting a bit of a late start, but very excited about joining in! Thanks so much.

WillowBean said...

This is my first quilt-along EVER. I know I'm getting a late start, but I'm going upstairs to cut my strips right now!

Kristin said...

I found this a little late, but am excited to make my first big quilt. The flights of fancy fabrics you choose are beautiful.

Ruthie said...

I would love to join in. Of course, I have many projects in the works already, but I have a wonderful kit of fabrics just waiting to be used.

Cynthia said...

I am interested in joining. What do I need to do?

Mercedes said...

Please, count me to the SAL and of course for the Sewing Machine give away, maybe I have a lucky girl and I can enjoy my first quilt machine and keep my domestic.

This is my first quilt along also. I'm late but I'm in. Please sign me up!!

Sharon Scott said...

Okay, I think I am caught up. All my strips are cut. Tomorrow I sew.

I used fat 1/4s from my stash. All black and whites with a splash of red!

Oblivionsunrise said...

I'm definitely joining in. Already got some pics up on Flickr. :)

Susan said...

I'm in! Just got home from vacation and I see I have a lot of catching up to do! This looks like fun, thanks so much, Dana.

roseylittlethings said...

I'm in! just catching up, hoping to have the strips sewn by Monday, we shall see if I can get them done! Posting about it today!

Vicki said...

I am excited about doing my first quiltalong. I may start sewing the blocks together this weekend as I am all caught up, for a change. Thanks so much for doing this.

Sanourra said...

This sounds like great fun. I've got 3 WIPs, but what the heck, I want to learn how to make a quilt! I'm already a bit behind (like 3 weeks)in this, so I bought a couple jelly rolls to get me started. Here we go!

Kathleen said...

Excited not to be too late to join the quilt a long and have the chance at winning a sewing machine...wish I had known earlier to have an extra 100 chances with the right fabric...but am trying to use only fabric from my stash and I have done it so far.

Hope it is okay to only do a lap one...mine will be about 140cm as i did not have enough of some fabrics to do more than eight blocks of each and mainly because my arthritis makes it impossible for me to sew large quilts

Thanks so much for organising this

Anonymous said...

I would soooo love to win this!! I am new to quilting and this machine looks wonderful!!! Thank you for sharing your great talent and for all the fun give aways!! Jeannette M

Dawn W. said...

Oh, sign me up! I love Janome machines!

mrspelton said...

Oooooh!! I would love a fancy machine. Mine is a freebie hand-me-down and it's the most basic of basics. Though it quilts, and tha's what counts! Check out my progress if you get a chance, I'm updating new photos tonight! Thanks for the inspriation. Wish me luck!!
