Spring break has been great...a lot of staying up late, sleeping in, reading "sew inspiring" things and quilting, of course...along with a little bit of spring cleaning and organizing. While organizing I found quite a few blocks I needed to get caught up on. First I finished 16 "A La Mode" blocks (fabric Simple Abundance)...only 8 more and I can put this quilt together--can't wait to finish--love the fabrics and the pattern! Actually, I would have finished this already except that I need to cut the background pieces for the remaining blocks
I think one of the reasons I love these blocks so much is that pinwheels and stars are two of my favorite quilt block designs...and this pattern incorporates both!
I also finished up block 10 of the "2009 Mystery Designer Block of the Month" from FatQuarterShop. This block was designed by Joanna and is a gorgeous block!
I like the way my second block turned out too...I've added my Bar Harbor scraps to the fabrics I'm using for this quilt...and love the way Bar Harbor coordinates with Prairie Paisley and American Primer. Block 11 should be arriving soon, so it was good to get caught up.
Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along quilt from Moose on the Porch Quilts! I wish these blocks were coming out each week instead of every two--they've been so much fun!
Oh...and the winner from last weeks giveaway is comment #136... Di...congratulations! I really enjoyed all of the wonderful organizing tips and ideas...thank you so much! Have a wonderful week!
