I’m so excited to be participating in the first-ever Bloggers’ Block-a-palooza! So without further ramblings - here’s a message from our Chief Paloozer, John of QuiltDad!

Chief Paloozer says:
By now, many of you are busy making the final push towards the holidays. But what are your crafty plans as we enter 2011? Well, clear your plate, because we have a great quilt-along planned that will begin in January!

18 quilt bloggers have collaborated to bring you the first-ever Bloggers’ Block-a-palooza. We’ll jump from blog to blog making 2 quilt blocks per week, wrapping up with a custom setting and layout design to help complete your quilt.

We’re calling this quilt-along “Waiting for Spring” because we’ll be using the brand new Sunkissed line by Sweetwater for Moda, and the bright colors and botanical prints should help you (or at least those of you in the Northern hemisphere!) push through the cold winter months and have a fresh new quilt ready for the Spring.

More details will be available soon, but in the meantime feel free to grab our button below and spread the word.
