i've been playing along with the beginner's quilt-along all summer, and it's been fun watching this quilt develop. hosted by pat sloan and the quilter's gallery, a new block is introduced every thursday. and if you post a picture in the flickr pool by the following wednesday, you are eligible to win prizes! here's all of my blocks so far:
i'm planning to sash it with ivory. the deep brown needs something to separate it from block to block. and i'm also thinking i will set the blocks on point - i've never done that before.
another easy quilt along that just started is the contemporary quilt sampler, by laura nowles.
the first lesson was just posted, so you have plenty of time to gather fabrics. i like the layout of this quilt, and the fact that you make several of each blocks means it will come together super fast! i'm holding off on choosing fabrics, but i'm getting weaker by the day. soon...
and of course there's the totally groovy quilt along, i know lots of people are joining in on this one! you do have to purchase the pattern, but what a great quilt! and they have awesome prizes! and i'm intrigued - i want to know HOW to make those curves.
and finally, here's one i've been careful not to let my boys see. the super mario bros QAL! i'm not up to this challenge yet, but it's super fun. maybe i could swing making one block for a pillow? we'll see.
how about you? are you quilting along with anyone these days?
