Just so you're in the know, here's a few online happenings that may be of interest. Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs has a second, free Quilt Along running from June 2015 to March 2016. If you want to get an idea of what you have in store, you can take a look at her previous Mystery quilt.
Another free Quit Along, and a great way to use some solids, is underway at Pretty Little Quilts.
For those with the ambition to compete, or a desire to give your quilted work some time in the limelight, I've compiled a page of calls for entry. The biggest online quilt show is also just around the corner. Come enter or view the show on the Amy's Creative Side blog.
If you're in a shopping mood, and a fan of Cotton + Steel, Craftsy has all their precuts and backings on Clearance.
