2014 has just begun and now is the perfect time to start a new quilt! There are hundreds of free patterns out there to choose from.   I rounded up 17 FREE quilt alongs for you to check out.  Hopefully one of them will inspire you to join!  Some of them are new this year, and there are other’s that are from last year–but they are all great!

First up is this new quilt along from the Fat Quarter Shop.  This is such a fun pattern and is just starting this month! So be sure to head on over and check out all the info!

If you are wanting to try a modern quilt for 2014 “String of Pearls” from Christa Quilts is a great choice! The complete set of instructions is available here on her blog.

Christa also offers several more quilt alongs on her blog here are a few of my favorite:
Modern Trees Quilt Along
Sea of Squares
Charming Chevrons

If you are super ambitious, then this is the quilt for you! When I saw this one, I about died.  These barn blocks are adorable! Each barn has something different inside.  Lori from Bee In My Bonnet has a tutorial for each barn on her blog here.

Maybe you are more of a block of the month kind of person! Well I posted about 4 different block of the month clubs starting this year.  You can find all the info about them here.

I decided to do Amy’s Sugar Block Club block of the month this year.  I just got my first block pattern in my email this week and cannot wait to make it! 🙂 

I hope you find something here that will inspire you to try a quilt along or a block of the month! 

Talk to you soon,
