Confessions of a quilt-along addict

I can't resist a quilt-along. I love working on the same project alongside others and seeing lots of different interpretations of the same quilt. And most of the time, I find that having a deadline helps keep me motivated. However, last year I went a bit overboard, joined too many quilt-alongs and hardly finished any of them (it might have had something to do with being heavily pregnant with, and then giving birth to twins).

This year I am determined to finish all those quilts that I started. And I'm not letting myself start any new projects until my WIP list is under control. At first I thought this meant not joining any more quilt-alongs, and I have been experiencing serious FOMO over some upcoming quilt-alongs that I would love to join in. But, luckily for me there are a few quilt-alongs I can join without starting any new projects.

One is the Ombre Gems quilt-along, which the pattern designer, Emily is running for a second year in a row. I joined this quilt along last year and only managed to complete three blocks.

This year I hope to do better and am setting this project as my Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal for April. I'm making the smaller version of this quilt so am aiming to have 9 blocks completed by the end of the month.

Lets see if I can keep up this time :)



  1. Sounds like a fun QAL. Looking forward to seeing all of your blocks.

  2. Very nice. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project. (I too am a qal addict!)
