jaybird said...

Jennifer said...

I'm in! And probably my e-mailess neighbor. I am/have been teaching her to sew and quilt and this would be great! Great colors! Great quilt!

Lazy Daisy said...

I'm in i shall have to go and have a look and see what I've got - plenty of fabric to choose from.

Deanna said...

Count me in...except I will probably use stash fabric rather then buying...but you never know.

Estimated size, please?

Erica said...

How fun! I am in! I have been wanting to do more with pinwheels. Yeah!

rachel griffith said...

deanna...
my original pinwheel sampler is 79"x79"

since this one won't be exact, but close, i'm projecting it to be in the neighborhood of 70" square.
{give or take a few inches.}

marciekoch said...

Me me me!! I hate sewing pinwheels but I love the look of them! I'm so inspired every time I look at your pinwheel sampler...I'm so in. :) (I have a Wild Thing quilt sorta kinda started - I'll have to work on it to get good and practiced on the pinwheels!)

Nichole said...

i am SO in. not just a little in, SO in. :) ever since i saw your pinwheel sampler quilt i have wanted to make one of my own. i love it! so now, i don't need to worry about seeking out all of the block patterns. perfect! :) i am really excited about this!

Charity said...

I'm in, this should be fun! I see myself knocking out a Christmas present already. :) Now the problem, finding the right fabric... off to shop!

Crystal Hendrix said...

Well aren't you busy!! Thanks for doing the quilt along. I have been meaning to Amanda Jean's Star quilt along but I like this one too!

call me crazy said...

Congratulations on post #400! I love pinwheels! :-) Let me see if I can come up with fabric~

Messy Karen said...

i'm in.

~melissa p. said...

Oh, this looks like fun!! Since I'm new to quilting will this be difficult for me? and if I use fat quarters, how much do I need? Since I don't have a stash yet I will have to go buy some fabric. Too bad for me, Hee! Hee!

nicolette said...

Congratulations on your 400th post!

I was pondering on how to use my Arcadia layercake... maybe this is the answer!

Dianne said...

OK, I need for you to not be cute and fun and creative and stuff...I can't take any more quilt alongs :) JK...love it...I'm in...as if there was ever a question

kimmie's quilt's said...

im in also yay! cant wait to get started.

Lauren said...

I want to be in. But I'm nervous. Can beginners do this one? :)

Grey Cat Quilts said...

I'm in! I love the look of your pinwheel sampler, though I'll probably be using stash fabrics - except for the three yards of light solid. I know for sure I don't have three yards of anything solid.

Thanks for hosting this!

Rachel Carlson said...

cheers to 400 posts! ooh, this one looks like fun too. wish i could commit to two of them. pout. thinking of you!

SGreen said...

I'm in too!!! So excited about it too!! Congrats on hitting 400! That is awesome!

Quilter Going Bananas said...

Congrats on 400 posts! Pinwheels are timeless and classic, great choice.
Off to see which layer cake or FQ bundles I have in my stash...

Erin said...

I am totally in. By the way, anyone have any suggestion on where I can get some discount fat quarters or layer cakes, my stash is rather limited and times are tight when it comes to money. Thanks and can't wait to get started.

Monet said...

I am all over this--I already finished my siggy squares and am excited to start something new.

Heidi said...

I'm in. I've been eyeing that quilt for a long time.

trish said...

Please count me in! :o)
Where can I find the same layered cake that you are using?
- Trish

onlymehere said...

Will you be posting the instructions each month on your blog? If so I'd love to join you on this journey! I loved the quilt and I have the perfect fabric in mind for this quilt! Please let me know if you'll be doing it on your blog as I don't have flicker and I hope to join with you. Thanks, Cindy.

LyndaG said...

I am in... not that I don't have enough projects to finish, but I do love doing sampler blocks - never know when you need a gift.

Katie said...

I'd love to join in - but can't promise to keep up! I'll probably use stash fabrics though.

Luv 2 Kreate said...

How fun!

Hooks, Pins and Needles said...

Hey sounds like fun..count me in..I"m Sue new to the blogging world..i want to invite everyone to stop over to my blog and have a look..

Miss Nancy said...

Great Sew Along. I wonder if I will be able to keep up with it. I would love to put the button on my sidebar but it does not want to copy. How should I go about putting it on my sidebar?

Have a great day and thank you for sharing your talents.

Molly said...

Yes! I'm in...I love your pinwheel quilt, and I just made a mini pinwheel quilt for a swap.
Hmmm, which layer cake to use?
Congrats on 400 posts! :)

Della said...

Count me in Rachel.

Jessa said...

I'm in - this will be my first quilt a long and it sounds fun! Great quilt! Going to have to find some fabric! Congrats on #400!

Debbie said...

me! me! me! I'm in and all ready with my layer cake.

jabeybaby said...

I'm in! I have a stack of Pat Sloan's arabella that I have been planning to make into a pinwheel quilt so this is perfect!

Katie B. said...

Oh, I'm so in! I have a Christmas gift card to the Fat Quarter Shop that has been burning a hole in my pocket. Off to spend it!

hawghugger said...

Count me in, it sounds like so much fun. Never been a part of a quilt-a-long before, but, no better time than now. I love the finished quilt and can't wait to get started.
Congrats on your 400th.

Cecilia said...

I would love to do this, I love pinwheel blocks.

Kristine Hanson said...

Rachel, if we don't have a layer cake (LUCKY YOU!) how many prints would you suggest we have?

Rene' said...

Congratulations on your 400th post! Count me in. Sounds like fun.

Katie B. said...

If we're going the fat quarter route, can you give an idea of how many we might need?

Lexilooo said...

I'd love to participate, this is so, so pretty, but I am not sure if it is too much for me...I am still a beginner!

Nancy said...

I'm in - and thank you for doing this!

Mikol said...

This will be perfect! I have 2 layer cakes waiting for me to turn into something. Thanks so much, it'll be fun.

gr8dmbfan said...

Count me in! I have a layer cake just waiting for a project like this. Thanks

Cynthia said...

I would love to join in!! Looks like fun Thanks Cynthia

Monet said...

I think a layer cake is about three yards of fabric total, right? Meaning 12ish fat quarters?

kesch said...

I'm in, but for me this MUST be a stashbuster... so no clue on how happy my fabrics will be together. ;-) Thank you for doing this so I can quilt along.

Anonymous said...

I'm in but how many fat quarters do you need? thanks

Rosemary

Tracey said...

Your pinwheel sampler quilt was so cute...

now which fabric do I want to use???

Gabrielle said...

okay... I'm game! Can't wait to see everyone! I'm going to use vintage clothes for the pattern with a white background. I can't wait! Oh I would be a sponsor for the giveaway too.

Magoo said...

i believe i will take a stab at it! :) off to hit ebay for some good deals on some layer cakes ;)
thanks for the project!!

kelliemorgan said...

I'm in. How many fat quarters would I need?

Bobbi said...

I'm in...now on the hunt for just the right fabric!!!!

Tracey said...

I'm getting excited! :)

Needled Mom said...

It should be fun!

Jen said...

ok...I think I can do this...I'm in! I'm a beginner, but your tutorials are so fantastic I should be able to manage! And you know what...? I'm going to use the "Verna" Layer Cake that YOU sent me for winning one of your giveaways! So thank you, this will be PERFECT!

angela said...

I love pinwheels! Count me in!

Di~ said...

I would love to join! Thank You for this!

Annie of Blue Gables said...

How Fun Rachel! I think I would like to try this. My question is, if I don't purchase layer cakes, but use the fabric on hand, how much do I need? Also, how big does this turn out, because I will probably make it into a bed spread for a queen sized quilt.
Thanks
~a

kesch said...

Ok, go ahead, call me rookie! I thought I could figure it out... how do I GRAB THE BUTTON?!?!? Thanks for any help I can get!

Dana said...

oh I am so in. This will be my first quilt along! BRING IT.

Melissa said...

I am in!!! First ever quilt a long for me. I will be bringing friends!

beanie g said...

Rachel, I'm TOTALLY in, since I was too late for the siggy one. I'll do this one.

thanks!

Sherri said...

Oh my goodness...what fun...you are going to keep everyone busy this year, aren't you?!

quiltergirl said...

The quilt is amazing. I want to join in but feel like I'd fall off the wagon and wind up with another UFO. I love your blog and you have inspired me to up the quilting anti this year! I wound up with 4 finished last year. I'm hoping to at least quadruple it this year, but it's not starting off so great.

Crafty Mama said...

Yay, how fun! I probably shouldn't start another new project, but I can't resist;-) Count me in!

smallgrapes said...

Soooo tempted, just not sure I have the time!

Erin said...

Hey Quiltergirl. You can do it! It may take me all year too to finish it. You just need to set a realist goal for yourself. I am guessing that not everyone will finish at the same time, it is like taking a test in high school, you have to go at your own speed. You should do it and have fun, don't think of it as a choir or something you have to get done at a certain time. Take your time and have fun!

Hope you join in, and if you need some cheering on, I am here.

Barbara Myltschenko said...

I'm trying to decide if I'm brave enough to try this! I might need a night to think about it all . . . . but if it turns out as great as yours, can't you just make one for me????

Amanda Naomi said...

I'm in!! I'm so excited this is my first quilt along!! I can't wait!!

Renee said...

soooooo tempting!!!!

"Dove" said...

I've never done a quilt along before.

I want to be IN, but, you see, I'm what you call a detail girl. I am that pesty, pesky type that needs to ask a few or forty questions first and over analyze the concept of quilting-a-long while shopping obsessively for layer cake sales.

What can I say? There's one in every crowd.

What is the relative time commitment? Do you post instructions daily? Weekly? Just curious about how much sewing we would need to do to keep up. If we opt for fat quarters or scraps, what total yardage do we need of those?

Whew. I think I'm done.

THANKS!

Becky said...

I'm in! and so excited!

Claire said...

Oh this will be fun...I'm in...what's one more thing to add to my do-to-list

Courtepointe said...

Count me in! I just love your sampler, and have been collecting pinwheel blocks to do, but always get stuck deciding how much fabric to buy; a layer cake is a great idea! In fact, I have a layer cake of Birdie, so that's perfect!
Thank you for the invitation. I was feeling bummed about not getting in on the signature swap fast enough.

Luanne said...

I love that quilt too! I don't know if I will be able to get any done, but I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone else's!!

Lorraine said...

Just when I had decided I wasn't going to join in ANYTHING this year....LOL....colour me weak but I can't go past this one!

Carol T said...

I love your quilt so I think I will try it!!!!

imagrandma2five said...

I love quilt alongs so count me in! And lucky for me my LQS is having a big sale, whoo hoo! Any excuse to buy fabric! LOL!

Theresa said...

I've been thinking of working on a sampler so this will be ideal for me. Not promising I'll keep up though...I'm notorious for slow endings! Well done.

amber said...

these may be silly questions for an experienced sewer but how much fabric is in a layer cake? or how many fat quarters is that? :)

Kelly Todd said...

I hope I have time to commit to this one as well! We'll see how things go but I have a layer cake I need to use up :)

Quilt Nut said...

2010 is supposed to be my UFO year and here i am committing to another new thing lol. and my mom is joining too!

now i get to go fabric shopping :D

Anonymous said...

Hi! You are so amazing...love your creativity and cool fabric choices!! I am "in" I think though I don't know exactly what I am getting in to. Do we make a block a week? I am finishing a quilt for my husband so I hope I can keep up! Kim in Madison

passingdowncrazy said...

Ok, fine! What's one more project. I'm in!

SheilaC said...

Me too!!! YOUR pinwheel quilt is gorgeous and I would love to have one modeled after it...

Not sure I have the yardage...

When do we start?

SheilaC

Cherie said...

Perfect! I have that same layer cake and solid fabric just waiting for me on the shelf--what a perfect solution! I'm IN!

Sew It UP! said...

Don't forget to count me in!!! I'll have to make some time some how but I'm going to do it.

Nanbon44 said...

I'll give it a try

Terriaw said...

Congrats on your 400th post! What a great way to celebrate. I have always wanted to try the pinwheel block. Looks like a fun project.

Deb said...

Rachel ~ could I ask what the fabric was in the pinwheel quilt you link to? It is beautiful, and I wondered if that was a specific layer cake or just a variety of fabrics. Thanks! I'm considering joining in although I'm already committed to another quilt-along, too, beginning in a couple of weeks!

Alana - Knit Wit said...

Oooh, I think I have to do this!! Your pinwheel quilt is gorgeous, and I'd love to make one. Just joined two blocks of the month, but what's one more project, right?

Lyn said...

I would really love to attempt this. I'm new to quilting too, but I suppose I can take on a challenge! Looking forward to hearing more details.

The Quilt Shoppe said...

Congratulations on your 400 milestone!

Count me in too :)

Lani

Rebecca Woods said...

I have never done anything like this before so I think I shall give it a try. Good excuse to get some fabric too :) Thank you Rachel

Mommy Songe said...

ohh ohh... I have the perfect layercake just waiting for me to use it up in something absolutely fabulous... and I finally found it! I'm in! Yippee!!!

thewoolenrabbit said...

I've never done pinwheels before but I'm willing to give it a try. :)

Primitive Friends said...

I would love to join your quilt-a-long!! I've never been in one before and would love to give it a shot!! I have several layer cakes, but no solid yardage, so I'll have to decide on which one to use, then go shopping for the yardage! Dumb question tho, will you be showing a picture of the finished top before we get started?

ColiBee said...

Hi, I would love to join too!!! I still have a Mill House Inn Layer cake in my stash which was waiting exactly for that opportunity!!!

Pat V. said...

What a fantastic idea! I'm definitely doing this with y'all. Now I just have to decide -- do I steal a layer cake I set aside for something else, or delve into my stash (probably the latter...) Can't wait to start!

Pat V.

Deidra said...

What is one more project?? I am definitely in. When do we need to have our fabric ready to go?

lilsproutzmom said...

Oh I am in! I have yet to start a quilt this year and have had my Simple Abundance layer cake just sitting there waiting to be turned into something. I am scared of pinwheels, but what a perfect way to overcome my fear! Thank you for the quilt along!

Claire said...

I'm in.. for sure...pinwheels never go out of style!

Claire

spidr said...

Yay! I'm in!!! Not sure what fabric I'm going to use but it's going to be a great quilt no matter what! Thanks so much for sharing with us! Erica

Karen said...

Hi...have been desiring to construct a pinwheel quilt for a few years now, so I am endeavoring to jump in with your beautiful pinwheel sampler! Are there any layer cakes with the colors you chose for your finished pinwheel? Would really like to use those colors. Thanks so much, Karen

Lisa said...

Sounds like fun - count me in.

Deb C. said...

Congrats Rachel on 400 posts. That's a lot of dedication and work!
You came at a perfect time for this quilt-a-long. I'm trying to use some stash this year, and this would give me a nice plan. And 70" sounds like the perfect size. Not too small, not too big. Love it.
And I really like the wonky block that looks like a triange in a triangle from your previous pinwheel sampler.

Tammy Gilley said...

How fun is this?! I am so in!! Cheers...tammy

Libby said...

Congratulations on 400th post....and yes, count me in on the pinwheels.

Karen said...

I'm in! I love pinwheels and samplers of any kind. I was just looking for a pattern to use my Aviary layer cake with...this will be perfect. I'm so excited!

Anonymous said...

yummy!!yummy!! thanks for sharing your favorite thing!! I am new to your blog but within minutes I am now a faithful follower and have now subscribed as I don't want to miss a minute of inspiration. SEW WONDERFUL!! THANKYOU!! Your Modern siggy swap looks so yummy as well.
unfortunately i missed out on that. But as I wait for the next one it has given me an idea for a thanksgiving quilt. For the last 2 years our family has had a blessing bowl out during the month of November. We write on little strips of paper what we are thankful for. And then on Thanksgiving day after we are done eating we each take 2-3 slips of paper out of the bowl and read them together. Instead of the signitures on the quilt blocks I thought I could write the things that we are thankful for from the slips of paper. Making the blocks out of Autumn colors! Rachel May I?? use your block pattern?? Thank you, maybe others will be imspired with this idea while we wait for another exchange!
WARM HUGS! it's cold in Iowa!

lisa said...

I have just the fabric at home. I was going to do somethign else with it, but this sounds like fun!

Diane said...

I'm in! I got my siggy blocks done today so I can commit to something new! I have the same question as everyone else... if using fat quarters/stash, how many different fabrics do you recomend. If using a Layer Cake, will it use it all? I was going to get a charm pack to cut for coins, but if we will have leftovers here, maybe I can kill two birds.

Thanks!!!

diplofam said...

I really like to click into your blog once a week or so- (my 4 year old daughter is dancing to the music on the blog as I type this-so cute!) count me in-
I will add the button and look through the scrap stash.
Fun!

iknitipurl said...

I'm in too! I've yet to try the pinwheel blocks and I've always wanted one.

Jessica said...

Oh, Rachel, it's fabulous! I'm in!

Wendy_MT said...

Pinwheels are my absolute favorite. Please count me in!!

Betty said...

I want to do it too- picked my fabrics today.

Dandelion Quilts said...

I'm in! I am going to use my Boutique layer cake that I won at Kelly's Charming Cotton Quilt shop.

knitwit said...

I'd love to participate. This will be a new experience for me. I'd like to get the backing right away. How much fabric should I plan on for the backing. Can't wait to get started!!

judys said...

Sounds like fun. I'm in.

stitchsister said...

Hi Rachel. Are the 3 yards light solid for the pinwheels? Or are they for the backing?

I'm in! I love pinwheels!

Marisa said...

How could I possibly say no? Your quilt is so inspiring!

Over40 said...

I'd like to join in -- is there anything I need to do?

Chris said...

ok, I would like to try...I may do a stash quilt??? I've never done a quilt a long before so this is all new to me but I am excited to try! Don't have a flicker acct. but I'll check on that. Looking forward to more info. Thanks!!

Deb said...

Just bought a Verna layer cake today just for this quilt...hope that was a good choice. I'm looking forward to it!

Rita E said...

Should be lots of fun ... I am in and have already joined the flickr group. Off to Road to California Quilt show to see what fabric I can come home with!

Muriƫl said...

This sounds very tempting!!

May Kristin said...

Oh yes, I'm in! Have some layercakes that need a project!

Kristine said...

I'm in! I'm planning to use the fabric I have in my stash, but will definitely have to get a light solid as I don't have enough for that.

Julie-Ann said...

I'm new to your site, but count me in!

Maria said...

I am also a newbie but would like to join in. Will you be posting the intructions on your blog?

audrey said...

I've debated and debated over this because I don't really need another project at the moment LOL! I'm in using a Hushabye layer cake.

Loose Threads said...

I rec'd a layer cake of frosted memories for Christmas and pinwheels are my favourite blocks so think I should join in!! Just need to find a suitable background and I'm away. I'm new to this but will do my best - if I write I must commit to it!! Thanks Rachel.

Kelli said...

Ooh, ooh...I've been looking for a quilt-along and this one has my name written all over it...no blog, so I'll have to keep up on flickr (and actually post pictures to it!!), but I'll be playing along at home!! I'm off to buy a new layer cake--whatever excuse works, right??

Cyndi said...

I'm a newbie to reading blogs, but not to quilting. I have a new - six month old - baby boy, so this pinwheel will be great for him! And I've always loved pinwheels the best :-)
It is also my first quilt along, so it's going to be fun!
--cyndi

susie said...

I am definitely in! I have a rouenneries layer cake I have been trying to decide what to do with, and now have the perfect project! Yay!

Anonymous said...

I'm gonna give it a try. I usually do BOM's with a group. I've got a zippity do dah layer cake that will work with this pattern. Should turn out looking cute.
Debra

Liz B. said...

I think I'll join, though I'll likely be using stash fabric. My goal is ten quilts to Project Linus this year so this could be one! Looking forward to it.

**MIGNONNE** said...

I'm in.

Heaven help me I am going to be starting a new project!!!

Roosje Anita said...

What a great idea. I'm in.
Anita

Jeannie said...

Pinwheels are my favorite and I have a new layer cake :*)
My first quilt along!

Diane said...

Count me in - I love quilt alongs.

Jilly's Space said...

oh my goodness, I am sooo in! My poor little sewing machine has sat, left abandoned since before christmas. AND I bought my first layer cake and have no idea what to do with it...this is it! This whole quilt along was meant for ME, lol
Thanks so much!

Katelyn E. said...

I'm in! Can't wait to start!

Nancy said...

Sounds like too much fun to miss out -- so I'll be joining in with a Minick & Simpson Bar Harbor layer cake and plain white background.

michelle said...

I'm in, too. My youngest got her first sewing machine for Christmas & we can do this together. It may be just the excuse for buying fabric.

TexasRed said...

I'm totally "in." (I have a friend's baby quilt to make before this summer and this looks like a perfect motivation!) I'll put up the button and write about the quilt-along Monday.

Wendy said...

My DD (9) saw this and just had to have it! So I told her that I would help her and she promptly told me that I could just make it since she didn't do very good. We've compromised and I'll sew, but she has to help me press! We're excited and can't wait! She choose the same, Simple Abundance, just like you! It'll be a great journey for the two of us! Thanks for sharing and helping us make a great memory (hopefully)!

an encourager said...

I am working on my very first pinwheel quilt right this very minute. Comittments outweigh my time right now, but who knows if I might be able to scrape up some extra minutes....

Noela said...

I'd like to have a go. Need more practice at pin wheel blocks. Now to find a layer cake.

bellaandmolly said...

I am in! Just order a Boutique by Chez Moi layer cake. Congrats on the successful blog and all of your beautiful work.

Tom said...

I'm in! Love pinwheels, and your sampler is wonderful!

Carol said...

I am in! I just bought Old Primrose layer cake and one of the lighter coordinating fabrics for my background. I am ready to begin!

anne said...

Joanne said...

Count me in! I love your work. Thanks for doing this.

Lori S said...

sew happy mom said...

Hi! This is my first post on a blog.I want to do the quilt along. Thanks for doing this!

jillybee said...

Been thinking this one over, as I have about a million quilts in the works already.

Going to do it. I too love this pattern, and I will just use the left over 20+ yards of fabric I have collecting dust.

Looking forward to this.

Blessings,
Jillu

Sants said...

I'm in. Heaven help me.

ozonadesigns said...

Similar questions...how many different fabrics would be needed by using fat quarters? Also, I saw a layer cake, but not from Moda, and it has 40 squares instead of 42. Would that be enough? I REALLY want to join in, but don't want to end up short on a fabric line that I LOVE! Thanks!

kimmie's quilt's said...

when does this start?

Jennifer said...

Looking forward to creating along side other quilters. Waiting for the next set of instructions to come! (I'm a little late signing in - did I miss anything?)

Edie said...

Late to the party, but I would love to join in on this - it looks like a great project to use up a few of my 100+ batik fat quarters :-)

Betsy Lynn said...

OK, I'm in too!

Lauren H said...

If not too late, then I'm in, too. Congratulations on the wee one you are expecting!

Sylvie said...

I'm in too!
What a great idea!

KarrieLyne said...

I've been looking at this for days and keep trying to talk myself out of starting another quilt project, but then again, can we really have too many? :D I'm in. I just put in my order for my fabric. Can't wait to get started!! Woo Hoo!!
Thanks for hosting this Rachel! :)

40ladybug said...

I'm i sounds like fun.

kimland said...

Wow... your pinwheel sampler is beautiful and your so generous to share your knowledge. Did you use a layer cake or individual pieces you like? I have quilted a few years now but, still consider myself a rookie. The "colors" are always a challenge for me and when I see something I like...well I know it and this is just beautiful!

I am also new to your blog, and want to join the pinwheel fun - may I?

Congrats on baby #4 - feel better soon (morning sickness is the pits, but is oh, so worth it!)

I'm in if I'm not too late. I might use FQs from my cupboard - then again I may just have to buy a new layer cake! Hmm, sounds like a plan.
Congrats on baby 4, fours more fun (have to say that, I have four).

Sounds great and I'll join! I'm going to gather fabrics today, I think I can use this as a great stash buster. :)

Crud, I just broke my own rule, "no new projects until most of my WIPs were done." Mmm- such is life! :D
