Supernova Quilt-Along: Join Me!


One of my quilts that has gotten the most attention since I started blogging is this one. I’ve been amazed by the number of people who have asked for a pattern or a quilt-along based on this design. I had no idea people would take such a liking to it. I am truly flattered. I have to admit, I’m a teensy bit intimidated by the idea of hosting a quilt-along. But I’m willing to give it a try—I can’t pass up a chance to quilt with all you wonderful bloggy people!

So, welcome to my Supernova Quilt-Along. I think this quilt-along is suitable for all skill levels. It’s fairly simple, straightforward piecing. You can join the quilt-along at any time, and feel free to follow along at your own pace. However, I am selfishly hoping that at least a few of you will want to do it along with me, in real-time! So, to convince you to keep pace, I’m offering a few fringe benefits:

Blog roll
See that Supernova Blog Roll over there in my sidebar? If you plan to quilt-along concurrently with me, I’ll add your blog to it. Just post about your Supernova Quilt-Along plans on your blog, and be sure to include my Supernova Quilt-Along button in the post. Then either comment on my blog that you’ve done that, or email me, no later than March 23, and I’ll add your blog to the blog roll.

That’s right, I’ve got a full FQ bundle of Castle Peeps to give away. Everyone who links up a completed quilt at the end of the quilt-along will be eligible for the drawing. How’s that for incentive?

So what do you think? Are you all with me? Tune in tomorrow, when I’ll post fabric requirements, the schedule (which I promise will be very doable), and a few tips for selecting fabric. You can also join the Supernova Quilt-Along Flickr group, where you can post photos of your fabric selections and your progress.

I am looking forward to quilting along with you all!

    Oh dear, I'm still behind on the LAST quilt along I joined! But I'll see what the fabric requirements & time schedule are like & hopefully I can join. At the very least I'll definitely be following along & bookmarking for later!

    I'm in in in! And I'll blog about it later today. And while I think it would be fabulous in whatever fabric line is chosen, I stocked up on Hope Valley because (a) I LOVE Hope Valley and (b) I LOVE this quilt pattern!

    Oh, I want to, I'll have to wait until tomorrow's posting to decide for sure though…I gave up fabric purchases for lent, and if I don't have the fabric in my stash now…then I'm out of luck! I have a lot of fabric, just not sure what the requirements are yet! Waiting until tomorrow…..

    I am in! I loved this quilt when you first previewed – My post on the blog will go live tomorrow at 5AM PST.[http://richpageant.typepad.com/paulawessells/]

    I'd love to do this, but does the entire quilt have to be finished (backed, bound, etc.) or is it sufficient to just have the top done?

    Okay, I've blogged about the quilt-along and will definitely be involved (even if I'm not eligible for the finishing prize) because I still have 9 quilt tops to make this year, and this looks like it'll be a simple, yet stunning design.

    I don't have any followers on blogger yet, but I'll post something to my Livejournal instead and you might find a few people from there following along!

    I'm in. I don't have enough time to scratch myself at the moment, but your quilt is so inspiring I cannot resist! I've just picked up the button and will blog about it before the 23rd.
