Bestie Quilt-a-Long

You know how sometimes you meet someone, and you immediately click? That's how it was for me and Candice. And as for Jackie, well, it took her calling me an ignorant *^%& at Market for us to really hit it off. My life would not be the same without these ladies. So when Candice suggested we make matching bestie quilts, I was all in. While I would much rather make a late night Chipotle run with them, I will settle for snuggling with a quilt that reminds me of them.

Do you have a bestie? Care to join us? The rules of the Quilt-a-Long are simple: grab a bestie (or casual acquaintance if you're prickly), pick a pattern and some fabric, and get quilting. Jackie, Candice and I are going to Swoon with Flea Market Fancy.  While there is no timeline on this QAL, my personal goal is to have it done before the baby comes in March. This QAL is all about having fun with the people you love to spend time with. 

Oh, and PS, this is great for using up your stash. Come on, you know you made that resolution, too. 

So leave a comment letting me know you're joining us! Grab the button and put it on your blog. Instagram your progress with #bestieqal. We'll be setting up a Flickr group before the end of the week. And anyone need a bestie? I'd be happy to play matchmaker. Seriously.

How fun that you guys are doing that. I love the fabric and pattern you guys chose. I wish I had time to join in. It will be fun to watch you guys and follow along.
