Fall into a QAL Block #3

So, I enjoyed block #3 of the Fall Into a Quilt Along.  A little bit of everything, piecing and applique.  It is very cute.  I managed to keep background fabric in this block.  I am hoping I can manage to do this throughout the Quilt Along.

Today was my lucky weekend.  I can home from work on Friday and had a package from Nanette at Chopin-A Passionate Quilter.  She sent me a “Quilters care Package”.  In it she20180615_195721_resized sent me some wonderful batik scraps.  I used some to make the applique on this block.  I had mentioned that I was going to be using batik scraps with my background fabric.  She sent me some other lovely items, that I will show later as I complete them.  She is one of the kindest people I know and it certainly brought a smile to my face.  It has already proven to be a very valuable resource.

OMG and Fall into A quilt Along

qal_logo_abbie_designSo, I finished block #2 for the Fall Quilt Along.  I am trying to stick with the same background and all my small pieces of batik (AKA scraps).  Hoping it will come out nice.  I enjoyed making this block and find it pretty.  So far, they (partners in Design) are 2 of 2 with me.

For My June One Monthly goal, I am going to finish the star wars WaterMark_2018-06-04-19-54-42top.  It was originally intended as a donation quilt, but we will see what happens.  I found this two yard remnant of star wars fabric for $4.00.  It was all odd rectangles, so the best way I figured was to make odd 4 patch blocks.  It needs some sashing.  It is just sort of hanging there in strips, but I think it will be OK.  I thought about making my goal to complete it entirely, but I currently feel like laying on the coach a lot, so I am going to stick with finishing the top.

Fall into a Quilt Along – Hedgehog

So, I had no intention of joining this quilt along, but when they published the first block, I fell in love with the hedgehog.  I figured that I could manage one block every two weeks.  I think this is maybe about project #18 that I have started.  Yep. Full Blown Quilting ADD.  I do get things finished.  I mean, that is what the One monthly goal is for.

I have no idea what the other blocks will look like, but I plan on using the sam background fabric throughout the quilt.  It is a little odd, bit I like it.  If you are interested in joining this quilt along, the first block is located on Quilting with Vanda’s blog.  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
