Quilty Plans

Lots of good things happening over here at the Dragon household. I promise fuller updates in the next few days. In the meantime though, I wanted to share a couple of quilty things I have signed up for, in case any one else would like to jump in too.

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?


  1. I'm doing another year of finishes and trying to get ready for my 13 for 2013 project list - last year was so successful. I looked at the curves class and I am thinking maybe next year!

    Here's to another crafty year from one Amanda to another!

  2. Good luck with your goals!

    I've got a whole 'nother post coming about my sewing goals. Suffice it to say, I may be pushing it a bit, but I'm really excited about *everything*! : )
