I know you're all expecting the start of the sew-along to be posted today, so I'm going to try. If I leave something out, just ask. My brain still isn't working quite right. I believe I already mentioned the plan is to make 99 blocks, 50 nine-patch blocks and 49 Snowball blocks. Of course you can make as many or as few as you wish. But with that plan in mind, our monthly goal for each of the first five months will be to make 9 nine-patch blocks and 9 snowball blocks. Technically these blocks will make up the first two rows of you quilt. Of course you don't have to make them into rows yet if you don't want to. But that's how I broke it down to get the number of blocks to make each month.
I'm sure you remember there are several options on this quilt.
And if you need the specific instructions, you can find them HERE and HERE. I've also made a button and have added it to my sidebar. You can grab it from there to add to your blog if you like. I'll try to get a linky thing for February set up sometime today.
