The quilt along is coming along wonderfully! I am so thrilled by the response!!♥♥
I have posted 7 blocks, and there are 13 more to go (if you are making a queen size quilt like mine). By my calculations we will be finished piecing in the middle of February, unless we take some time off for Christmas? I have some catching up to do on the alternating blocks! (Connie has all her 41 alternating block done!! Way to go!!)
Because I am stumped by posting printable patterns, it is kind of limiting. I wanted to let you know that all the blocks will be non-directional (I want a quilt that is square and can go in any direction on my bed - less sun damage on one side). All this being said - applique would be a great addition to the quilt! If you have EQ6/7 there is a great free download of applique blocks (they are Rose of Sharon, a couple hundred I think).
If you chose to add some applique, make sure the blocks are 9". I might decide to do only one of a few blocks and add some machine applique ones.
Colleen was kind enough to send me a picture of how her quilt is coming along -
I have seen others around and it always thrills me!!♥
Here are a couple that come to mind -
Joan has been doing a wonderful job on her blocks.
Karen has some great ideas for her blocks.
Needled Mom is doing a couple of quilt alongs, and has chosen to use more modern fabric for mine - nice to see the difference.
If any one wants to send me pictures I will add them here.
There are more pictures on Flickr.
I also have to mention that it is my wonderful husband's birthday today! ♥
This is as close to a baby picture that we of him - he is the youngest of 7.
I thought I would add this picture of our youngest at around the same age - can you tell they are related?! Even the same haircuts - thanks to their Mom's!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!♥
