Are you ready NOW!?!

I love January and all the Block of Months that come out of the woodwork to tempt ( I am pointing at Pat Sloan here...temptress!) and tease us into wanting to make 500 NEW quilts when we already have at least seven that we did not finish from last year ( maybe a bit of an exaggeration...or not).  The unfinished ones are for the Kitchen Sink quilt we were planning for all along.  Shhhhhhh...that is my story and I am sticking to it!

I saw them coming down the pipeline starting in early December and knew that I would try to round up some for you to start your New year off sewing with a BANG!

One of my favorite all time sites is Free Quilt Patterns.  They host an INSANE amount of free patterns to blocks, quilts and other projects. This is pretty much one stop shopping of the freebie quilting world. If you have not visited this incredible resource, now is the time.

I saw this block yesterday by Pat Sloan and about died!  FABULOUS...right!?! It is from the 2014 Mystery BOM hosted on Free Quilt Patterns. did I mention this pattern is FREE?  There is also a Flickr group to join along and make some new friends.

Fat Quarter Shop is doing a Block of the Month with a cause!  The Wishes Quilt Along  is to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation.A beautiful quilt and a very worthy cause! There is also a Flickr group for fun and support for this BOM too!

"The Wishes Quilt Along will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Donate to the Wishes Quilt Along Donation Page for the use of each free pattern. Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics will match up to $10,000 of donations raised. And to top it off, we will auction off our Wishes Quilt Along Quilt at the end of the program, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish!" 

Aurifil Designer Block of the Month 2014 has shared it's AWESOME design team!  What a great group of fun people to spend some time sewing with!  This year there is the added bonus of Natalia Bonner giving free tips on machine quilting ( I know I need some, how about you?).  The added bonus for this BOM group is that if you join the Aurifil Flickr Group and post your finished current BOM, you are automatically entered for the chance to win a large spool collection of Aurifil thread.  YES PLEASE!

I will be posting more to come and then some fun quilt alongs that I think are really special!
