Quilt Along

My promise to myself for the new year, was to make at least one quilt and/or some quilted item/accessory per month.  I want to practice and learn new quilting skllls and needed a challenge.  I am so inspired by all of the wonderful quilting blogs.  So, I decided I would find and join a "Block Party", "Quilt-Along", or something.  While visiting blogs the other day,  I noticed that Sew Inspired was having a quilt-along...I joined!  I thought I might have been too late to join; but, I was encouraged by Vicki to come along!

I completed all of the blocks for the quilt size I chose within a couple of days!  I am now ready for sashing!

Here is my fabric choices:


...with a splash of red (not shown)!



block piecing with some 'red' (shown)!


 Here's a peek of each block style I sewed on Flickr!

I've already sought out my next quilting project! Stay tuned to see the finished quilt top.  Until next time,

HAPPY SEWING!
