Are you ready to Square Dance?!!

The next Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt Along is coming!  We will be Square Dancing this year!  Save the third Friday of each month for the steps.  This is going to be a bit different, and I’ll give you one hint now – there will not be any half-square triangles, LOL!!! Nope, not one. I have done enough of those for a time, and this time we’ll learn something new. Bwaaahaahaa!!  Are you ready?

Save the third Friday of the month for the steps, beginning January 19th.  The quilt along is once again going to use up your leftovers, with the design done to take advantage of some precuts, but you’ll also need some fat quarters or yardage.  I actually have some alternative cutting strategies too, to use more sizes of things, so if you have charm squares, jelly roll strips and cake layers, set them aside and we’ll use them up.  The steps will be simple, and easy to work in around other projects.  In fact, some may even work for leader ender project.  Those doing the monthly goal thing can use the monthly steps for that too, and get two things going at once!  The quilt along will go until July with finishes after that.  You can share your fabric choices, progress, and finishes on our Flickr Group, or on the From My Carolina Home Project Sharing Facebook group.  I love seeing what you all are doing!!

I will link this post only with a few link parties and BOM pages to get the word out.  I will not link the individual steps, so I hope you’ll follow my blog to quilt along.  January 19th – updated click on –  Square Dance Begins!
