The first is a Curves Class through Stitched in Color. Rachael taught the Handstitched class I loved so much this summer, so I couldn't resist signing up for another class. She is actually running both the Curves and the Handstitched courses in January/February. Registration opened for both today and, if you are interested, I would hurry on over as she sold out of spots for the last go-round.
The second is with a new-to-me blogger that I "met" through Flickr. Alyssa of Pile O Fabric is running a monthly block of the month (BOM) skill builder.
I'm intrigued by the blocks but what really caused me to sign up was the fact that this is a quilt as you go (QAG) project. This will serve the dual purpose of (a) giving me something to practice free motion quilting on each month and (b) walking me through a QAG method, which I am curious about. This quilt along is absolutely free, which is perfect for the wallet weary.
Both of these will have me nosing through my stash this weekend to see what I can pull out. I suspect I can mostly do Rachael's class from my stash, but I may need to get fabric for the BOM in order to get all the value/color combinations she is calling for.
Are you tackling any new projects this year? Any skills you are especially excited to learn?
