A New Quilt Along?!?!

I had a productive couple hours waiting for children in the dentist's office this morning.  I made some decisions and came up with what I think is a fun idea for the next quilt along.  This is just preliminary information for those who want to get started thinking.  A formal announcement will be made along with more information when I get everything more formalized.  So for now. . . .

Layer Cake Quilt Along 
2 Nov 2010 to 3 May 2011

Fabric Requirements:
1 Layer Cake (or 12 fat quarters)
1 1/2 yards accent fabric
1 2/3 yards outer border
4 yards backing
2/3 yards binding

Size of Quilt:  64" x 80"

There will be 12 sampler blocks with a fun new layout and new designers!  Boy, I can't wait to get started myself! 

Why wait until November?  Well, I still have to round up a few designers and give you some time to get your fabric.  Then there is this little thing called Quilt Market the end of October that designers are all very, very busy with.  So we will get started right after Market. 

P.S.  More quilts are being added to the Jelly Roll Sampler Flickr group.  Fun, fun, fun!!!  All of your creativity inspired some creativity of my own with the layout of our quilt, but it will be a while before we get to see that!

I really enjoyed the last one- I will have to do this one too. Thanks. Cant wait

Merete said...

Yes!!! Looking forward to this! I have several layer cakes to choose from.

Merete said...

Maybe a silly question, but what do you mean by accent fabric?

Bec Clarke said...

Oh I have some Layer Cakes needing a good pattern, I am in.

Gene Black said...

I will say a tenative yes! But I may do mine scrappy.

I would love to design a block for this!

Cindy said...

The Jelly Roll Quilt Along was so much fun, I SEW look forward to the new Layer Cake Quilt Along.

Thank you.

Sequana said...

I know that once I saw the new blocks being designed, I'd kick myself for not joining in. *S* So I'm in again.

Besides, I think I have a better idea about how to choose the fabrics to use this time.

Staci said...

Very excited about this! Thank you so much! I love love love my JR quilt! I pieced backing for it yesterday and will layer it up this weekend!

I'm so glad you are doing another quilt along!

Lee Ann said...

I may end up just doing this! Sounds like fun!

Kimmy B said...

I'M IN!!! SOOOO EXCITED!

Gari said...

Great! And November is good for me, too. We have a quilt show in mid-Nov and then I will be ready to go. Loved the last one so this one should be good too. And, I have never bought a layer cake so I will get to try something new.

Nancy said...

Hooray! And I just need to check in my stash and choose my fabric. Thanks for doing this again.

Vickie E said...

Konda, Can I design one? I am not going to market! I have some time on my hands (insert twiddling)!!

Keep Your Sunny Side Up said...

I am very excited to join in.

Becky said...

Yes! I so enjoyed the jelly roll quilt along. I have several layer cakes and FQ's. Just have to decide on one of them.

I just received a layer cake, did not know what to do with it. Now I know. Yippeee thanks

Wilma said...

Count me in!! I just loved the JRQA so I know a LCQA will be just as much fun! I'm so looking forward to it!!

crickets said...

Woo hoo! I cannot wait to start, and the time frame is perfect. I'll finish up the layering and quitling of the Jelly Roll QA top and then be ready for this new one.

YOU ROCK!

Sandy said...

Love to!! Should have my JR quilt all finished by then. 12th block and finishing is all I need to do.

Cindy said...

I just placed an order for some fabric to go along with the layer cake I'll be using.

I'm set for the new Quilt Along, Konda. Looking forward to it.

The accent fabric is a fabric that will be used in some small borders. You do not want the fabric to blend. This fabric will add a "pop" or "wow" to the quilt. You want to pick a color that matches, but stands out from the rest of the fabrics.

hooray! i'll have to make the momentous decision of which layer cake to use--fun :-) i actually did finish the jelly-roll quilt and it's beautiful (if i say so myself)--i'm too lazy to get around to taking a picture--but do want to say thank you for organizing these quiltalongs!

VickiM35 said...

I had such a blast with the JR Quilt, will be looking forward to doing this one...will do 2 again, 1 with fat quarters & 1 scrappy. The scrappy will be donated, like the last one. I'm happy it's not starting till Nov. as Oct. will be too busy to start for me. Thanks for doing these, fun!

Lee Ann said...

I've been eying the "Pure" by Moda Layer Cake... But, I'm don't know what I would use for an accent fabric. What would any of you suggest?

The Mighty Miners said...

shoot I bought christmas!! I thought you would be starting in October! lol...guess I will have it for next year eh! can't wait! I should have my quilt back this week from the last one

sauberfrau said...

This is a really good news. Thanks. I saw als these nice quilts from the last JRQA and I'm looking forward to this one.

Regarding the fabric requirement I have one question. Can I also use long quarters instead of fat quarters or wouldn't work it that well?

Thanks a lot!

I'm ready to roll on this one. Just got my layer cake and yardage in the mail today. I'm very excited.
