Another Quilt Along

Talk about jumping on the bandwagon with all these quilt alongs. I found another blog that is doing a quilt along called Sew Happy Geek and she's been posting a fun quilt along. I went through my stash of fabric that I had laying around and starting picking some colors. Black, Red, White and also a flower print that I wish I didn't really use because it just isn't fitting in very well. My first block that I did was called the Woven Block. It really seemed to go together very well. I was happy with my seams and when I don't have to rip anything out I'm even happier!

Next block was called the Snowball Block. We had to lay 2.5" squares on top of our 6.5" squares. Sew in a diagonal and then cut 1/4" past our seam. Again luck was on my side and the seams and points turned out very well.

Friendship Star Block will be my 3rd block for the Quilt Along. What I thought was going to be a very easy block turned into more of a challenge. Those Half Square Triangles or HST's that everyone refers to just kicked my behind. The points aren't lining up like I'd like and that flower print is not working!

My last block that I have pictures of so far is the Pinwheel Block. I love the colors and how my points lined up. The red just pops out. As you can see the flower print is no where to be seen - Yeah!

Now I'm off to do some more blocks. I'm having fun sewing and so excited to see what else is on the agenda at Sew Happy Geek.

Have a Great Day!

Your blocks are great, and I am sure the flower print will win you over in the end!
