It’s a go! We are going to have a Calico Rose Quilt Along.
Here is the basic plan: I am going to build a middle size quilt myself (72″ square) but I will try very hard to give (accurate) directions for folks who want to build large and small versions. The quilt is based on 2″ squares. If you want to build it based on 2-1/2″ squares, that is fine with me and I will answer questions as they come in, but I am not planning to write a pattern for that size at this time. But don’t let that hold you back. After all, when it is all said and done you will have a great time, fewer scraps and a new quilt. Sounds like a win-win-win to me!
The first installment will come out probably March 10. It will include fabric requirements, a signup of some kind (looking for suggestions here) and the schedule.
You can quilt along making any size or a modification of your own. I love to see your work. It appears that most linky parties do not work on the WordPress platform and I don’t really want to do the Flikr thing, so I am not sure of the best way for us to keep up with each other’s work. Suggestions here?!
This is a new thing for me and I am really excited to have a shared experience. I know, waiting is the pits, but while you wait you can get your thoughts together and start cutting squares if you need to. The original is made of three colors, but you can choose more or less or anything goes. This time I think I will make a bright, springy version on a white-white background.
Should be FUN!!!
