    You're doing great!!! Part of this was to be able to challenge ourselves to get out of the same old rut, try new things. Nothing will be perfect the first time we try it, it might not be perfect the tenth time we try it, but the fact remains that at least we are trying.

    Now I need to go get myself some coffee...

    Ladies, as soon as I have my afternoon coffee I will be posting all the blocks that we have done and let everyone know what we will be doing over the month of March. We are coming close to an end and almost have our sampler quilt finished. Hope everyone is getting excited, might even have something exciting to announce shortly...

    Well I see we have been quite busy for those playing along and I think that is absolutely wonderful. I really am happy to see that people are enjoying themselves. You have all been great with helping each other out and being understanding that this probably isn't the most organized Quilt Along you have all been apart of...LOL This was the first time I was trying to do this and I have learned a bit along the way to make another one much easier and much more organized.

    Anyway, on to what I wanted to get together this weekend. Below you will find all of the blocks we have done so far for those who may be just starting or who wandered along the way..

    I am going to list all the Easy blocks by week first, than all the challenging blocks by week, after that will be anything we added along the way.

    Easy Blocks:
    Week 1 - http://www.quilterscache.com/F/FancyStripesBlock.html
    Week 2 - http://www.quilterscache.com/B/BrokenWheelBlock.html
    Week 3 - http://www.quilterscache.com/B/BalkanPuzzleBlock.html
    Week 4 - This week was a catch up week.
    Week 5 - http://www.quilterscache.com/G/GooseCreekBlock.html
    Week 6 - http://www.quilterscache.com/C/ChainandBarBlock.html
    Week 7 - http://www.quilterscache.com/W/WoodboxBlock.html
    Week 8 - This week was a catch up week.
    Week 9 - http://www.quilterscache.com/A/AuntDinahBlock.html
    Week 10 - http://www.quilterscache.com/C/ChinesePuzzleBlock.html

    Challenge Blocks:
    Week 1 - http://www.quilterscache.com/A/Arkan...oadsBlock.html
    Week 2 - http://www.quilterscache.com/A/Axe&ChurnBlock.html
    Week 3 - http://www.quilterscache.com/I/Inter...zzleBlock.html
    Week 4 - This week was a catch up week.
    Week 5 - http://www.quilterscache.com/D/DoubleAsterBlock.html
    Week 6 - http://www.quilterscache.com/F/Flyin...atchBlock.html
    Week 7 - http://www.quilterscache.com/V/VOS_C...StarBlock.html
    Week 8 - This week was a catch up week.
    Week 9 - http://www.quilterscache.com/T/TheHo...uiltBlock.html
    Week 10 - http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CentifoursBlock.html

    Extra Blocks:
    Week 4 - Paper Pieced - http://www.quilterscache.com/A/ATripleStarBlock.html
    Week 4 - Crazy - http://www.quilterscache.com/B/BridalPathBlock.html

    So as you can see we have 8 blocks in each of the categories and 2 extra blocks posted just for fun. Since we need 12 blocks all together to create a 60x60 lap quilt we will not have any more breaks for the quilt along. Over the next 4 weeks we will post the last four blocks that will finish out the sampler quilt top. I will also post some extra blocks each week for those that have not done all the blocks in either category so that they have some choices to finish out the quilt top. Some of those extra blocks will be challenging, but for good reason. Another quilt along will begin in September that will be using the skills that you have used here as well as adding on a few more skills. The September Quilt Along isn't going to be a sampler, it's going to be a designed quilt top by myself and Carolyn MT. All the details will be posted by the end of June such as approximate amount of fabric needed, the skills we will be working on, and the size of the quilt. The actual designed quilt top though will not be shown until September when we start.

    See everyone later and hope you're still enjoying the quilt along and looking forward to the future project..

    Got this weeks cut out but not sewn yet. Hopefully in the next day or two. Had to get FQ's and SP boxes ready to ship out of here. This will be great, I'll have time to put this one all together and quilted before the next one starts.....well that is the plan anyway, hopefully it can get done.

    I am working on a quick quilt top that I will finish up tomorrow when I get up. Than off to make my car payment so I can come home and work on some of the quilt along blocks. I would like to get caught up with them by the end of the week, so as long as I do a couple a day I should be ok. Once I am done with the 2-3 I am doing tomorrow I will continue to hand quilt my disappearing 9 patch. Getting frustrated to only be able to sit with it at most an hour a day which is broken up through out the day.

    Oh my gosh! I just realized I am TWO weeks behind! I have been out of town the last 2 weekends and have a lot of catching up to do! I am having all 3 of my grandkids over this weekend plus 1/2 day chorus practice on Saturday. I think I will need 2 catch up weeks! Here are my most recent squares.

    From looking at all the posts, I have a suggestion. Some of you are not setting the seam and pressing as you go along. It will make a big difference. Put a towel next to your machine so you don't have to keep jumping up to use the iron.
    You can easily make yourself a little pressing station. many ideas online.

    Hi
    I enjoy watching everyone block and looking at all the different colour combination, I have completed 4 more blocks but still playing catch up.
    I have just notice that in the first one I will have to play the unpicking game again and fix it up so, back to the machine it gose. Now back to the cutting table,to cut the next lot of 4 blocks out, but first I have to get my Grandsons quilt done before he out grows his cot. It is amazing the how different the same colour combination looks if you just change the back ground colour. I am using up left over fabric that I use in a quilt I made last year but change the background colour from white to the yellow and black. Still have to make up my mine what colour slaching and boarders to do.

    Everyone is doing a great job. And if its a new thing for you this is a terrific starting point. If you need help or questions on what your doing or how to do it better/easier just ASK. There are so many quilters here happy to offer advice or tips. I picked up some amazing tips over the last year. And each time I work on a project I do learn something else. Like cutting tips. and putting the painters tape on the quarter inch line in front of the machine so you can sew a perfect seam all the time (or most of the time ok ok or part of the time but with free advice I suggest lol you take it!

    I am only 9 blocks into my quilt so far behind but I will catch up and even if this is finished post my quilt top. I am pretty good at getting it all together and since its for Me and its Christmas I want this one done. Wyldwytch thanks so much for hosting this its been so fun to work on and so fun to watch come together.

    Thank you Dotty, that is so nice of you to say. I sure hope it is, getting excited to put this one together. Would have never picked the gold/yellow splash of color fabric and really don't know why I did, but so glad I decided it had to be used or given away. Can't even remember when or where I got it, must have been on sale for a really good price. One of those "I don't know what I'll do with it, but have to have it at that price" kind of fabrics. I'm sure I can't be alone in doing that.....Do you know how many more blocks we have yet, I keep thinking 2 weeks so 4 blocks, is that right?

    Elisa, actually thank you and everyone else for putting up with my learning curves of running something like this. I could not have asked for a better group to get this going and understanding the flubs along the way. I have learned quite a bit myself, and while I am behind on my blocks and will eventually catch up, I think as a whole this has been a great adventure.

    Actually, I am sitting here as we speak working on the design for Septembers Quilt Along. Septembers QA is going to use the skills we have learned here and continue with learning things while giving us a themed lap quilt.

    Hope you will join us for that one too Elisa...

    Thank you for getting to this, you guys are all really helpful.

    Jaba, we have 4 more blocks to go to finish out the top. So over the next 4 weeks, no breaks, there will be 1 block posted for each category, 1 easy and 1 challenge. I will also be posting a bonus block that will either be paper pieced, made using a template, or containing curves. The simple methodmto my madness on that is those are some of the skills you'll need for Septembers Quilt Along...

    If we get to vote, please no set in curves. They are not my friends.

    I will be real close, figure I need 7 more blocks to make it the size I want. I need to count again, got to many going with the 3 groups I'm in for the Boomerang blocks. I always make at least a queen size so it will fit a bed. Us and all our kids have kings, except 1 daughter, so at least it will lay across the bottom for a blast of color or something. Almost makes me want to sleep in a twin again, yeah right, if I was younger and still had the energy. Okay that's another subject got way off the track

    I plan to do the whole sequence again when the nasty tendonitis in my left hand is better. Right now, I can sew a bit but I really can't do a lot with a ruler and a rotary cutter. I explained to the hand specialist, that I saw today, that quilting contributes to my mental health. He gets it. I love watching everyone's quilts grow and thank you all for sharing.
