Quilt UberFest

I feel like I've kind of dropped the ball here a little with promoting this fabulous quilt along I am a *small* part of, but better late than never, right?

So first off, what is Quilt UberFest?  Well, it is 16 days of awesomeness.  Each day there will be a new block by a different designer.  It started October 1st (see, I told you I dropped the ball a little!)

Block 1 was by John Adams of Quilt Dad fame.  You can find the block on his blog, here.
Block 2 was by Kaye Prince of Miss Print.  You can find the block on her blog, here.
Block 3 was by Karen Linton (@savinggrc on Twitter).  You can find the block here.
Block 4 was by Konda Luckau.  You can find the block tomorrow on her blog, here.

Oh, did I mention that the fabric all of the designers is using is Sleeping Beauty by Nel Whatmore?  Scott over at Blue Nickel Studios (who also put this whole UberFest together - he is amazing!) has posted an interview with Nel about her new line for Freespirit.  Check it out on his blog, here.

Also, because I will probably forget to keep posting who did which block and where you can get it, you can find the complete UberFest schedule here on Scott's blog.

So, you've clicked over to the schedule and haven't found my name on the list, right?  That's because I am actually going to be quilting the quilt.  I cannot tell you how excited I am to be a part of this quilt along by quilting the finished top!  I will post pictures for sure, once I can.  Until then, I would love to see what you have done as far as the UberFest blocks.  Join us over on Flickr and post your progress in our Flickr group!

I am - hopefully - going to get a chance to quilt along, too.  I still have to pick out my fabrics!  (I am sooo behind!)  My husband has decided that 24 drawers full of fabric is TOO much.  HA!  I actually don't blame him.  So, together we agreed that I cannot purchase any *new* lines of fabric until I use up some of my stash.    And can I just say that I happen to have some darling fabrics in my stash?  Yeah, I do.  And I have no idea what to do with some of them.  This quilt along would be the perfect chance to use up some of those sets.  And the bonus?  All of my fabric is girly.  I might just end up with a darling quilt for baby girl before she makes her appearance in January (or December, if she comes early).  :)

So what are you waiting for?! Join us on this awesome UberFest of quilting. :)
