One of my quilts that has gotten the most attention since I started blogging is this one. I've been amazed by the number of people who have asked for a pattern or a quilt-along based on this design. I had no idea people would take such a liking to it. I am truly flattered. I have to admit, I'm a teensy bit intimidated by the idea of hosting a quilt-along. But I'm willing to give it a try—I can't pass up a chance to quilt with all you wonderful bloggy people!
So, welcome to my Supernova Quilt-Along. I think this quilt-along is suitable for all skill levels. It's fairly simple, straightforward piecing. You can join the quilt-along at any time, and feel free to follow along at your own pace. However, I am selfishly hoping that at least a few of you will want to do it along with me, in real-time! So, to convince you to keep pace, I'm offering a few fringe benefits:
See that Supernova Blog Roll over there in my sidebar? If you plan to quilt-along concurrently with me, I'll add your blog to it. Just post about your Supernova Quilt-Along plans on your blog, and be sure to include my Supernova Quilt-Along button in the post. Then either comment on my blog that you've done that, or email me, no later than March 23, and I'll add your blog to the blog roll.
That's right, I've got a full FQ bundle of Castle Peeps to give away. Everyone who links up a completed quilt at the end of the quilt-along will be eligible for the drawing. How's that for incentive?
So what do you think? Are you all with me? Tune in tomorrow, when I'll post fabric requirements, the schedule (which I promise will be very doable), and a few tips for selecting fabric. You can also join the Supernova Quilt-Along Flickr group, where you can post photos of your fabric selections and your progress.
I am looking forward to quilting along with you all!
