Do you know?

Do you know of any Quilt-A-Longs or Block of the Months starting up on blogs in the new year?  It's always around the end of Dec/beginning of Jan that the good folks out there decide to encourage us with something fun and new to join along with.

I haven't quit decided if I will sign up to one myself but would be interested to know if you know of any starting up.  Please keep an eye out and give me a wee comment if you see anything.

Thank you Lovelies!

Edited to add QAL/BOM results (just in case anyone else would find a wee list handy, I'll try to update a list here from any suggestions made in the comments or any others I come across):

Don't Call Me Betsy - paper piecing BOM: stars (paid subscription, but not very expensive)
Quiet Play - paper piecing BOM on a sewing theme
The Littlest Thistle - paper piecing BOM, theme not yet decided
Old Red Barn Flickr Group/Amy's Creative Side - paper piecing QAL - dancing stars
Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt - Easy Street (started Nov 2012 - you may want to catch up though I hear that these only stay on this site for about 6 months before they are withdrawn)

Happy Quilting - Starburst Quilt-A-Long starting soon
Just Quiltin - a wee BOM of Bird Wallhanging blocks, the exact details are still being decided but worth keeping an eye if you like bird blocks
GenXQuilters - Sisters Ten Modern BOM - a 10 block free BOM (aims to make 2 of each block a month). This quilt has a great modern layout, go take a peek.  Starting very soon.
PileOFabric - Skill Builder BOM - 2 blocks a month to make a 20 block quilt, starts 17 Jan 

And, just so you can see that I have actually done a little sewing in the past few days, here's a wee blurry snap to keep you guessing.  I can't show you properly just yet for reasons that will become clear, but I finished this item tonight and it's so cute and bright and fun. I can't wait to be able to share it with you soon!


  1. Katy (The Littlest Thistle) is hoping to start a foundation piecing series soon:
    Don't call me Betsy is also doing a BOM foundation pieced star block series, but you have to pay for it! I dare say once we start the new year there'll be several more advertised. We could always start our own!! Jxo

  2. What a great idea Sarah, if I see any, will let you know

  3. Bonnie hunter has a new mystery quilt on the go right now, Amy from Amy's creative side is hosting a new QAL on the old red barn Flickr group in the new year, and I think Katy from I'm a ginger monkey along with a few others are doing a real beauty of a medallion QAL at the end of jan. hope that's helped and not confused you!

  4. I've not a clue - so nothing has changed round here then!

  5. Thanks for the 'heads up'. I like Judith's idea! Is she the leader in this enterprise? Di x

  6. Thanks so much for sharing about my BOM :)
