#17 I love the beginning of the month!!!

Why you ask do I love the beginning of the month?? It's simple, the 1st of the month all the QAL blocks are posted!!! and  I have been lovingly dubbed "the Queen of Quilt Alongs" by The Sassy Quilter!!! LOL

I thought I would post progress pictures of the blocks by QAL. Kind of fun to see them altogether!

                                            I've been having so much fun with solids!!

5. Block Rock'n

This one is coming together nicely, though I am behind on the blocks themselves (3 more, but not for this quilt!!) Pictures to follow as I construct!

6. Flower Patch

This one is going to be so cute!

10. Craftsy BOM 2013 

Pictures in Post #16 so I won't add again....this one has definitely pushed me on the learning curve!! New techniques and a quilt with different sized blocks! I will have learned a lot by the time this one comes together!!

Next Time:
2. City Sampler
7. Easy as ABC
8. Bloom Bloom Pow
9. String of Pearls

 Well all of the above are for sure, but I have also made all the blocks for the Craftsy BOM 2012 and have never put them together. Partially because the blocks did not all come out the same size (newbie mistakes I'm sure!!) and I wasn't sure how to handle the top construction!! I think I have come up with a solution... I am going to add a boarder around all the blocks in the background fabric and than trim. Then sash the blocks in a complimentary contrasting fabric, and hopefully it looks great and solves the sizing issue!!
It is my goal to accomplish this by the end of the month!! Be my accountability partner and ask me how it's going if you don't see pictures or hear back on the subject!!! lol

That's it for this week, bit behind, I have the flu, my main sewing machine is not working and now my long arm is on the fritz, not a good week!! But I'm not letting it get me down!! : )
