Are you a joiner?

I know I am... I love quilt alongs. Isn't it fun to see what everyone does with the same block or quilt? There are a ton of quilt alongs going on right now in blog and flickr land. I hesitated to start another one among the myriad that are already available, but as I have been saying to some of the people who have commented, don't worry I am not taking it away. It will still be here when you get around to it :) I have decided to simplify a bit this year. I had planned on joining quite a few of the quilt alongs that are going on right now, but I am de-committing :) I find that I am more excited about doing some things that I design myself this year. Here is quilt along that I am continuing though:

Birdie Stitches Block 1

How could I not continue this one?

That is so cute! I am a late joiner -- I wait to see if I like the first couple of installments, then I join :)

I would really love to become a part of a quilt a long or something along that lines but I don't know how to get started or where to begin

I love this sew along and can't wait for the new one that comes out tomorrow (I think). I have had to turn away from some sew alongs also. Only so many days in the month!

Becky said...

I am Johanna and I am a quiltalongaholic. I am joining way too many of those quiltalong/sewalong/finishalongs, I don't even remember what groups I am in until they do a post with: yeah you should be done by now. And then I have to race to get it done *sigh*.
Do you have some sort of mantra that keeps you from joining? I just can't resist :)
