The Bloggers Block-a-palooza:
This quilt along started earlier this year and many of us are just finishing up the 16th block. Next will be sashing/finishing options and quilting. These blocks were each a surprise, twice a week. I would not likely have made most of them if I had not just decided to give whatever came along a try and I am glad I did. I have learned a lot about more traditional piecing. Here is my favourite block so far:
I am excited about Lily's Quilts QAL:
We are making a wonderful dresden circle quilt with 30" blocks and "quilt as you go" quilting. I am having a wonderful time as this group is not only amazingly talented but they are funny!
I cut my dresden blades yesterday. These are a combination of Giselle, by Jessica Gonacha Swift, and Kona solids. This stack is 3" high!
And I sewed up the trial first plate this morning.
I am already in love with this. I am planning two different browns and a pink as the background and inner circle fabrics. With the dense quilting involved, I think this is going to be extremely cool when it is done.
Then there is the Supernova Quilt Along, which is just starting:
Lee's quilt has been one of my favourites since I found it on the internet and now she is going to show us how to make it, step by step. I am planning to use Timber by Jessica Levitt, and I just have to find a few solids to throw into the mix:
I have also joined two quilting bees and I will tell you more about them later, as it is time to get back to quilting today.
