Quilt-along with Moda

Quilt-along with Moda

Written by:

It's May and while we've been quilting-along since January, there are still several on the horizon.  And a few of the QALs - shorthand for quilt-alongs - have been a bit delayed in starting. 

#firstworldproblems.

So what are we getting ready for?  The quilters in the office aren't participating in all of these, but a few of us might be quilting-along with a couple of them.

While we continue to update these as dates and information changes, this calendar is divided into four sections:  Starting Soon, Summer Fun!, On-Going, and Months Away.

On the Horizon... aka Starting Soon.
