The Friendly Quilt Along Blog Hop

Craizee CornerIt's time for another Friendly Quilt Along! Last month Carolyn of ...Just One More Stitch and Tiffany of Another Pie in The Sky and I made the Key to my Heart pattern.  If you missed the blog hop you can catch up by clicking on the blog names above and here's my quilt. I love to see how the same pattern looks so different with each fabric line. And they all look fabulous!

This time The Friendly Quilt Along is open to everyone! The pattern we will be using is Snake Charmer by Little Louise Designs, it's available in both PDF and hard copy format from The Fat Quarter Shop.

Isn't this a cute quilt? And it is so easy, I promise. It calls for 2 charm packs and some yardage, but can also be made with 8 FQs instead of the charm packs. Since it's only a crib size I plan on making it a little bigger, it's such an easy pattern that shouldn't be a problem. Although it could be a nice throw for the winter. I like to have a small quilt on my lap when at the computer and when watching tv and this is the perfect size.

On Saturday, October 8th I will be showing you a very easy way to sew the connector squares on with out pinning or drawing on the back of the small square or even just guessing where the diagonal really is. Its a fool proof way that will make this quilt go fast.

You have between now and November 12th to finish the quilt. I wanted to give those of us going to Quilt Market/Festival or Sewing Summit some time to recover before working on the quilt. On the 12th we will all post our quilts on our blogs and will have links to each others blogs too. Dont worry if you don't have a blog or don't want to hop with us, you can always send me the pics and I'll post it for you. Or you can remain anonymous and just make the quilt, it's totally up to you.  

I have made a flickr page so we can show off all our great quilts too.

Tiffany at Another Pie In The Sky is working on a button for us. Speaking of that, make sure you check out her design services. If you are in the market for a new design for you blog or even just a button or signature she's the one to go to.

I hope you will join us. Last months quilt along was a lot of fun, this one promises to be also.
