Aunty Cookie is having a Quilt-A-Long! I am a big late with the blogging of this project but once again it's a case of better late than never, right?

So the plan for everyone involved is to get the "Fly the Flag" quilt pattern from Aunty Cookie (it can be found here if you want to give it a shot!) then week by week complete a stage of the project and end up with a great quilt. I thought it would be a good one to start with, the deadlines each week might keep me up to date and actually mean i finish something and the pattern is just so cute.

Below is the schedule, we are pretty far into it but will list anyway and hopefully post some photos of my work so far later on when i've got a bit more time on my hands.

Week 1. (Finish by 16 August 2013) Pick it! Fabric selections – in a show us your flags kind of way.
Week 2. (Finish by 23 August 2013) Cutting it! cutting out & making the flags – ideas for personalizing flags, tips on making it fancy.
Week 3. (Finish by 30 August 2013) Sewing it! yes that would be sewing it all together.
Week 4. (Finish by 6 Sept 2013) Quilt it! ideas and inspirations and techniques.
Week 5. (Finish by 13 Sept 2013) Bind it! And lets perve at your finished quilt….
Week 6. (Finish by 20 Sept 2013) QAL Wrap up & the awarding of awesomeness.
Ps Its now week 4 and i am actually up-to-date...... just a bit more quilting to finish - go me!
