Here are the "Official Rules" of the Quilt Along for 2008.
Rule #1 Have fun!
Rule #2 There are no official rules!
Rule # 3 Refer to rule #1
My thoughts on this Quilt Along:
I will announce the block...I picked "Stars" as a theme this year. All patterns and instructions can be downloaded from www.quilterscache.com
All blocks are 12" finished. There will be 12 blocks (one each month till December 2008) and 4 Bonus blocks (one each quarter ie March, June, September, December)
There are no signups for this. There are no deadlines as such. You play when you want to. Post pictures as you finish your blocks...I think there is already an album set up for us.
Fabric choice is up to you.
The "twist"....the first person to finish the first block AND post the picture of it in the appropriate album...gets to pick the February block. The first person to finish the first 3 blocks AND post the pictures gets to pick the first quarter BONUS block. Keeping in mind the theme is "Stars" and it needs to come from Quilter's Cache.
The "catch"...you can only pick the block once during the year (or twice if there aren't enough participants). I will pick the block if the person who should be picking the block doesn't want to or can't for some reason. The Bonus Blocks will be chosen by the person who has the 3 blocks of the quarter finished AND posted. Again, you can only qualify for this once during the year. January Block - Matha Washington Star
