BOM & QAL – Saturday Update

Happy Saturday night everyone!  My next goal before this update was to get 3 more 8-inch blocks done for my sampler quilt.  And I did…so welcome to this Saturday’s update – I would love to hear what you think of them so far!

2012 8-inch Sampler Quilt from all different Quilt Along’s, Block’s of the Months, and my Own Ideas!

28 eight inch blocks done for my BOM sampler! I have two of every block made for the Blogger’s BOM including the newest one.  I’m still moving a bit slower on the New York Beauty Quilt Along but did manage to make two more since the last post.  I think these are really going to add some jazz to this piece – and I can’t believe I’m actually making them – I never saw myself doing this ever!  I only have two left to get through all the ones in the Quilt Along.  They’re starting to go faster than they were before for me. 

I still only have the sole Mariner’s Compass Block done from the aid of Chris Lynn Kirsch’s class and her new self-published book, Compass Capers.  I will definitely be making at least one more of these for this piece.

I did a really fun ‘star’ block from the Crumb Along.  It is such a fabulous way to make a quilt!  I may have to make more than two of each of these…we’ll see what happens…

I’m up to 28 8-inch blocks made and I am so so so LOVING this quilt!

The Craftsy Block of the Month

First 10 Blocks of the Craftsy BOM

No new progress on these.  I made my blocks too early in the month…I’m already anxiously waiting for the next two…

And here’s the Craftsy Block of the Month Flickr Group if you want to see what others’ looks like:

FabricFascination

Next up: the BOM from FabricFascination.  Sometime’s BOM’s are nice to just have the fabric all sent already precut for you – and that’s exactly what I’m doing with this one.  A new block for May!  This one was easy peasy!

Home Sweet Home Quilt Along

Home Sweet Home Quilt Along - 16 blocks PLUS 4 Bonus Blocks - I'm in LOVE!

This is the last update I’m going to include my Home Sweet Home Blocks in – my top is pieced but I just wanted to warn you all before you don’t see it for awhile. 

I would LOVE to see how yours is coming along!  PLEASE post your block photo’s to the flickr Group:  Home Sweet Home Quilt Along Flickr Group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1850682@N20/

Do you know of any great quilt-alongs I should add to my list?  I’m always looking for more to expand my skills!  I’m especially looking for ones that are 8-inch block size so I can use up more scraps!
