Information, Please . . .

Not that I really NEED any more projects, but I was trolling around Blogland the other day, trying to find out if there were any quilt-alongs or virtual BOM projects starting up at this, the beginning of the new year, and I didn't really find much.  What did I have in mind?  Well, something like the Comfort & Joy applique quilt that Anne at Cottons 'n Wool hostessed a year or two ago.  Or the Country Charmer pieced quilt.  Or the Shabby Cottages BOM.  Or any of the great BOMs Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill used to offer.

As I said, I don't really need any more projects, but there's something fun about participating with a group of online friends that I've missed this last year.  So I thought I'd throw the question out there:  Is there something starting up that I may have missed?  If you've come across anything lately, please leave a comment with a link, if possible, to someone hosting something along these lines.  Or if you've been looking for something and haven't found it, please let me know--maybe we could start something ourselves.

Thanks, in advance, for any information you can provide to point us in the right direction!

There is a "wishes" quilt along, it's a sampler quilt on the Fat Quarter Shops Jolly Jabber - located here http://fatquartershop.blogspot.com/p/wishes-quilt-along.html

I'm going to do it from fabric I already have, need to reduce the "stash".

Pat Sloan has a BOM called Globe Trotting that started this month with the first block called Washington. There is an on-line group called Quilt Mashup that is her followers. It looks like a fun one. I'm putting a piece of millennium fabric with different cities on it. I've cut a center square with the Washington monument on it.

I'm glad you posted this question.
I think I am going to do the "Blogger Girls BOM" over at Open Gate quilts. You make 2 blocks a month for 6 months. They are 6 inch blocks which I like. Here is the link:

Bertie's Year BOM using my stash. Bonnie Sullivan sells the pattern set on her shop site. Shabby Fabrics has the laser cut pre fused fabrics as a BOM.

I have started an English paperpiecing project. It will only be 33 inches when complete so I thought I could fit it in. It's through Faeriesandfiber.blogspot.com
There is also an applique project through Sentimental Stitches. It's free but it's over a year to complete. That one block a month for 20 months. If interested, look for The Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt.

There are two interesting BOM's I am looking at. One is Pat Sloans : blogpatsloan.com (Globetrotting) and the other is Quilt Doodle Doodles : quiltdoodledesigns.blogspot.ca

Aurifil also has a BOM with the first month being spools.
