Block-A-Palooza Blocks 1 and 2

31 Jan

Awhile ago, Quilt Dad, announced a quilt-along and I decided it would be fun to join, especially since I thought the blocks would be more detailed than what I usually do, a nice challenge. I decided to use the same fabrics as the contributors so I had one less thing to worry about.

You can visit the Flickr group to see more participant photos or join in if you’d like!

So here is my block #1, I actually finished this block last Tuesday when it was announced:

There we go, let’s just say me and my seam ripper are becoming fast friends.

And tonight I did block #2, after fixing block #1:

Block #3 is now live but I didn’t get a chance to get it done tonight.

I also picked up something from the long-arm quilter today, here is a sneak peek:

This is a gift and my policy is that the recipient gets to see it before I post a ton of photos so after I get it bound and washed I’ll reveal the whole thing.
