Happy Friday! This year, we thought it would be a brilliant idea to challenge the FQS staff to take on different block of the months (BOM) and Quilt Alongs (QAL)! This might be the first time you've gotten to meet some of these FQS staff members, so on behalf of everyone, it's nice to meet you! We hope you'll come and join in on the fun, so let's start!
If you haven't heard the buzz about Snapshots, visit our page here. She's sewing up a few of her favorite blocks into a mini quilt!
We just love Gudrun's 2015 Aurifil Designer of the Month mini quilt! Kimberly chose to create hers from some Pam Kitty Morning fabrics from her stash! Check back in March when Kimberly's mini quilt is featured!
Next up is the Threads of Time Block of the Month by Julie Hendricksen (we've got a few spots left, so sign up today!). Look at all these blocks!
Jocelyn, our pattern designer extraordinaire and brand-newbie sewer, is taking on last year's Chandelier Quilt-Along hosted by Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced! Her fabric selection was inspired by a painting she inherited that hung in her childhood home her whole life. Just look at those alluring greens and golds!

Codi's love for sewing started just last year and she's already sewing projects left and right! She's even sewing samples for our tutorial videos three at a time! She could not wait to get started on Pat Sloan's Vacation Time Mystery Block of the Month using her amazing stash!
Just when you think she's done, Codi also whipped up the 2015 Aurifil Designer of the Month mini quilt. Doesn't it remind you of a snowy day? We're calling it a mini blizzard quilt!
Sarah is joining Sherri Fall's Mystery Mondays Sew Along! Every Monday, Sherri will posts her progress on her blog and instagram. If you want to join her, use #thisandthatmystery and sew along! We spy some Color Theory by V & Co. and Cotton + Steel Basics for Sarah's fabric selections! Follow her sewing adventure on instagram @spjenice.
Nova decided to join two different quilt alongs for 2015. She loves creating small blocks, so the Quiltmaker's Bitty Blocks Quilt Along is definitely up her alley! Her first blocks are sew sew cute! We love that she used her stash to create different bowtie blocks.
She also fell in love with the Lila collection by Dear Stella and decided to take on the The Power of Nine Patch BOM with Sherri Noel Designs is hosting. It's a perfect pairing!
Our resident Social Media girl, Daniar, loves to sew garments but she's venturing into her quilting skills this year with the Moccasin Block of the Month by Gen X Quilter.

Do you know any Legend of Zelda fans in your life? Our resident Web Content Specialist, Kat, is a HUGE fan. So it's no surprise that she's joining the Legend of Zelda Quilt Along with Cora's Quilts.
