quilt-alongs

There are so many great quilt-alongs starting up; it's so hard to decide which ones to participate in! I want to do them all!
I'd love to do the paintbox quilt which Elizabeth of Oh Fransson! is hosting. I loved doing her Mod Sampler quilt-along as her directions for a novice quilter like me, are superb! I still need to get mine quilted but was very happy with the results. This new quilt-along looks just as great! Check it out over at flickr.

Then there is the applique quilt-along which Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs is doing called Snowbound. I'd love to start it but I'm still working on my A Tisket, A Tasket 12 months of baskets. For one just learning to applique, it's been alot of fun and I'm learning a ton! Check it out over at flickr to see all the beautiful quilts being finished up now.

And then Rachel Griffith of p.s. i quilt is now starting up a pinwheel sampler quilt-along. Even though I have lots of WIP to complete yet, I just can't resist starting this one too! I'm sure many of you can relate to that, lol! I have a layer cake and some yardage in Aviary by 3 Sister's that I think might work for this.

And lastly, I have a BOM going on at my LQS. I have the first block done so far. It'll go on for the year, so come Christmas, as long as I keep up, I'll have enough blocks to do a top.

So that's it for me, at least for the moment :)

Find any great quilt-alongs? I'd love to hear about them. They have made quilting so addicting and fun for me. I really appreciate and love that they are offered by such great designers.
