Block of the Month and Quilt Along Update

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I tried to get this post out this morning but a shatter jar 1/2 full of applesauce created an unexpected delay in my morning.

Oh well…better late than never for our Quilt Along (QAL) and Block of the Month (BOM) Update!

Fabric Fascination Block of the Month Update


Fabric Fascination BOM - January thru July

Tonight we’re going to start by looking at 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. I’m really loving how these 7 blocks are looking together so far.  What a fun piece!

Now let’s take a look at the newest Quilt Along that I’ve started participating in – the

Free Spirit & Rowan Christmas in July Block-a-thon Update


I blogged last week about the first block I made ‘Tinsel from Fiberosity’ but already since then – three more block designs have come out!

Block 4 for the Free Spirit Christmas in July Block-a-Thon Designed by Pam Kitty MorningBlock 4 – from Pam Kitty Morning Free Spirit Christmas in July Block-a-thonAnd since these blocks are all different sizes my typical mosaic maker isn’t going to work to show off this quilt…you’ll have to do with semi-fuzzy pictures from my design wall of my progress.

I can’t wait until the next block…which I’m pretty sure comes out tomorrow!

2012 8-inch Sampler Quilt from all different Quilt Along’s, Block’s of the Months, and my Own Ideas! – 49 blocks made!

I have two of every block made for the Blogger’s BOM!  I’m anxiously awaiting the 25th so I can see what the next block is.

I did two more blocks for the Crumb Along.  Can you find my crumbed nine patch and crumbed four patch?

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.

Can you find the two ‘Spinning Nine’ Blocks I made for my quilt?

I finished the 10 blocks from the New York Beauty Quilt Along! I was definitely getting the hang of these by the end BUT I definitely think I’m going to keep at just 1 each for this quilt – but boy – do I LOVE them!

49 blocks so far…and still counting!  Hmm…I wonder how big this is going to get?

Quilting Gallery - Beginner's Quilt Along - 2 of each of the first 5 blocksI am ‘tweaking’ the ‘Beginner’s Quilt Along’ that’s starting up at the Quilting Gallery to make the 12” block designs work in my 8-inch sampler. Since the above mosaic is getting so full, I thought I’d pull out the blocks I’ve tweaked for these quilt alongs. You can see some of them are wonky, other’s have modified block sizes. Overall I think it’s still working and I’m having a ton of fun playing with them!

You can see what everyone else’s blocks for the

Craftsy Block of the Month Update


14 blocks from the Craftsy BOM - in LOVE!

14 blocks are complete for the Craftsy Block of the Month!  This month we learned how to make Dresden Plates.  I enjoyed them but if I am to do more of them I definitely need a Dresden ruler.  My template was off by just a touch but when you are off by a touch 20 times…it makes for an interesting circle…Oh well, they still look cool!

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