Traffic Jam Sew-A-Long

I'm very excited to be hosting my very first Traffic Jam Sew-A-Long.  We'll be using my Traffic Jam Quilt Pattern that can be found here.

Grab it right now so you'll be ready to join in the fun.  It all begins on Monday, February 29th and will be posted once a month on the last Monday of every month.  I'll post directions for the block or blocks to make for the month and you can post pictures on the Linky party of your color choices.  I'll also give you some tips and tricks along the way that you wouldn't get just by following the pattern.

It's really an easy pattern to make and so much fun to see all the color choices.  I made it up originally in black and red using the fabrics from Rush Hour by StudioE Designs.  It's amazing how different color ways and themes change the finished quilt.  Here are a few.

 Cathy made this one from a pretty paisley.

Don't you just love Lisa's sunflowers.

Melissa made these two in some pretty modern, bright bold fabrics.  They are available as the BOM from Kinship Quilters.  You can still sign up for the BOM and join the Sew-A-Long here.

The girls at B & B Quilting made this one for a shop sample.  And of course I love it.  What's not to love about red, white, and blue.  If you live in the Austin TX area, they have something up their sleeve for the Bluebonnet Shop Hop coming in April with this Traffic Jam Pattern... maybe a bluebonnet traffic jam... you'll have to be sure to check it out.  Details of the shop hop can be found here.  

And Susan at Cotton Boll Quilting has a shop sample too.  She also has kits available in the Rush Hour fabrics on her website here.  I love it that she uses her samples for table covers in her shop.

As you can see, it's a really fun pattern to make and the possibilities are endless.  I know you'll want to join the Sew-A-Long coming February 29th.
