Needle and Thread Thursday, Y'all!

Welcome to the very first Needle and Thread Thursday!

I'm excited to share a sneak peek of my Beginner Quilt Along progress with you!  On Monday's Beginner QAL post, I talked about cutting fabric for our quilt top.  Next Monday's post will be all about laying out the bricks and piecing the top together.

Take a peek at my brick layout- (Pat Bravo, Hyperreal Garden- love!)
(ps- my "design wall" is a white sheet laid out over a bed.  it's cheap, easy to put away, and gets the job done!)

That's all you get to see until Monday's Beginner QAL post!

It's your turn to link up your awesome projects from this week!  Remember, whether you're planning, piecing, quilting, or finished, we want to see it!

A few friendly guidelines-

1.  This is a link party for quilting and sewing.  As a quilter, of course that's my passion, but I won't nit-pick.  If you made it using a needle and thread, it works!

2.  Link to your actual blog post, not your main blog page, so others don't have to search.

3.  Please post the Needle and Thread Thursday button in your blog post or on your sidebar.  If you have a blog page dedicated to link parties, that works too, just mention Needle and Thread Thursday in the text of your post!  You can grab the button on my sidebar, or on my Needle and Thread Thursday page!  If you need help with this, just comment, and I'll be happy to assist you!

4.  Visit plenty of other links, and be generous with your comment love. 

5.  Not required, but truly appreciated if you become a follower of My Quilt Infatuation.
(ps- I love comments too!)
