Too Much Good Stuff on the Internet

Lately I can’t stop finding awesome projects to start from the Internet.  Not sure if it’s my New Year mood or the fact that I’m following some great bloggers, but I have a serious case of “need to step away from the computer!”

So instead of starting all these projects today (which I really want to do!), I’d thought I’d at least share them with you! (And inspire you to start some more projects!)

Bargello QAL from Katie’s Quilting Corner– This looks like so much fun & I can’t wait for later today when I can pull out my blue batiks!  In the 3 week QAL, we will make 4 place mats & a table runner- perfect for our kitchen table.  I’ve also got some great quilting ideas for these- based on some awesome quilts I saw at AQS Des Moines

Leah Day over at The Free Motion Quilting Project is hosting Quilt Along WednesdaysWeek 1 is up & looking inspiring.  Leah always has great tips for mastering free motion quilting!

Then over on Eleanor Burns’ Quilt in a Day site, she’s releasing a new book on Tales of First Ladies and Their Quilt Blocks. I really like the idea of doing a patriotic quilt based on the First Ladies- I’m thinking of red, white & blue batiks w/ gold batiks for the eagles!

Lastly, pieceful kwilter is hosting a 1930s block swap!  The blocks aren’t due until March 31, 2012, so there’s plenty of time to participate.  I *love* the block she chose & can’t wait to see the completed quilts!

Whew!  I hope those have given you some inspiration- I for one can’t wait to get started!
