    Can I still join the fun? I just found this today and would like to participate. I’m looking through my fabrics to will see where I will need to add.

      Hi Dawn,
      Of course you can still join us!! I’ll add your name to the January post – you go find some fabric. HAHA! I look forward to seeing what you pick and your colors. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. OK – this project will be started next week so I am a “go”!

      Nanette,
      If you refresh the Regatta post published on January 1st you’ll see your name among the participants. Thanks so much for joining us! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. I am a wanna be – maybe in a few weeks I can start – Thinking about the fabric colors and just downloaded the pattern. Nanette

      Hi Nanette,
      I see your second message that you are a definite! I will add you to the list of participants. I am really wondering what colors you are going to use . . . ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Happy New Year to you all! I’m so excited about this QAL and can’t wait to see what you all come up with! And ‘Wow!’ to the long list of participants. I’ll be watching your progress all along. If you have any questions regarding the pattern please don’t hesitate to contact me! Have fun!!

      Hi Daniela,
      I am so glad you are following along and commented today! I actually thought all of this interest might just spark your need to make a third Regatta Quilt. HAHA! Myra shared her beautiful rainbow strips on Facebook yesterday. This is such a fun and easy quilt – we’ll have many to show shortly. ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. Susan says:

    I’m excited to get started on this. I hope to start this week, but we’ll see. I’ve already had some upsets to my hopes, and it’s only January 1! LOL

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Susan,
      I think we’ll get going on this sometime this week. I have to work on and finish Dr Seuss first. ~smile~ Roseanne

  9. Roseanne, my oh my you have a huge list of participants! How awesome is that! I still have to pull my fabrics so I don’t have a photo to show you. I do know they will come from a variety of colors. Hang tight! Photo coming soon! 🙂

  10. Gretchen says:

    My strip sets are all sewn and pressed. Tomorrow I will cut them and sew them into the flimsy. This has been a fun sewing project!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Gretchen!
      Holy moly – you are setting a record for the quickest sew along participant! I can’t wait to see it all together. We don’t even have all the strips cut yet. ~smile~ Roseanne

  11. Happy New Year, my friend. I am falling down on my sewing jobs and blogging, but today is the first day on my new meds after a disaster with my previous meds. Hopefully these will be better and I will be back in my sewing room soon. Eager to start on Regatta and show everyone my fabrics. Sami says “Hey” to everyone.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Peggy!
      I was worried about you. Hey Sami – backatcha. Make your mom lay low today so those new meds can get in her blood stream. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  12. Vicki in MN says:

    I am using an Island Batik strip pack and I think instead of white will use an aqua yardage IB sent that is one of the colors in the strip pack. So of course I won’t use that color strip in the quilt;) I’ll be starting later this week to sew it.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      Oooh, that sounds really nice. It should certainly retain the water-ish feeling using aqua as the background color. Can’t wait to see how this comes together! ~smile~ Roseanne

  13. I’ve had a difficult time choosing my fabric, but I may take a look at my stash. I think I might be able to work with something from there. Looking forward to this!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Wendy,
      I can see where it would be difficult. So many options would work great. Can’t wait to see what you decide on! ~smile~ Roseanne

  14. Shannon Fleming says:

    My fabric will be here tomorrow! Can’t wait to get started!!!

  15. Cocoa Quilts says:

    I am so glad to get this one started. I’m using a boundless jelly roll in light blues and greens.

  16. Gretchen says:

    I had planned to take a picture of my fabrics before I started sewing them but of course, I forgot! My strips are looking good and I love how the white makes them pop. I don’t do facebook or instagram. I’ll make a post this evening on my blog. Happy stitching the start of the new year and may you see your bobbin is empty before you stitch a long seam!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Gretchen,
      That just means you were anxious to get started on this new fun project – no time to spend on photos! I look forward to seeing what you decided on! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Sue,
