My Favorite Block Quilt Along, Block 2 from AmysCreativeSide

Happy Thursday everyone!  Did you all find a little bit of time to work on the first block from Tuesday?  I managed to get one 12.5” block and two 6.5” blocks.  I am thrilled to see so many joining in with the quilt along and posting their progress on the flickr group pool.  This is going to be TONS of fun!

The next designer for the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ is Amy Ellis of AmysCreativeSide.  I first discovered Amy because of the amazing Blogger’s Quilt Festival she runs on her blog.  If you haven’t seen it yet – I highly recommend it!  Before we see our next block let’s learn a bit more about Amy!

What is your favorite thing about Quilt Alongs?
I love the camaraderie, and trying something new or different than I would usually do.

When you look at your quilts - what color do you seem to use the most of?
I love bright fabrics, I think tend to lean to blue/green, but have many pink/orange/yellow.

When you look at your fabric stash - what color do you seem to have the most of?

I couldn’t tell you! I have a mess on my shelves right now, and usually dig until I find what I’m looking for.
