Blogger's Quilt-UberFest Progress

I've done Quilt-Alongs before...that's how I started quilting a couple of years ago following Dana at Old Red Barn Quilt-Along...but I have never participated in a block-a-day kind of quilt-along....WHY THE HECK NOT?!!! They are so freaking fun!!!
I don't know what made me start this one....Blogger's Quilt-Uber-Fest....but I'm sure glad I did! A fat quarter stack of Across the Pond, lovely scraps I won from Quiltdad (gotta find out the name of the collection!), several yardage cuts of Grunge, a few brown batiks and the fun began in earnest!

Block #1- Take Flight, Block #2- Flying North

Block #3- South for the Winter, Block #4- Cabin in the Woods

Block #5- Homes, Block #6- Watch Over Me

It's fun but not as easy as I thought it would be... since I have all these coordinating fabrics I figure I could just pick a few and start cutting but you can really make a mess of it if something is too close in value...I am learning a lot....and I'm getting better at making half square triangles!

Looking at the above photo it's interesting to see that even though 1-3 were made before 4-6 the blocks above each other are so coordinated! Did that make any sense?:) I didn't do today's block so I'm going to have two blocks tomorrow but that's ok...I'm motivated!!:) Go visit the flickr group and see how much fun everyone is having...thanks Scott!!

How about these colors?:) Sigh!! Sixteen hundred inches of fun up next...I promise!



  1. They look great! The name of the line is Nesting Chairs by Laurie Wisbrun ( Glad to see you putting them to good use! LOVE Across the Pond, BTW.

  2. you've been busy - love the 'homes' blocks and that gorgeous fabric - looks like you are having lots of fun!

  3. BTW, it's good to see your dragon topped pumpkin again - makes me feel very autumnal!

  4. Wow! I think your blocks are AWESOME! That is going to make a beautiful quilt!
