    My first block. I think it should serve as how not to choose fabric. They are too close in value.

    I think it has a 3-D effect. Just wait until the quilting.

    the blocks are fancy stripes and arkansas crossroads both found at quilters cache. rosie you posted twice fancy stripes .. nap time! I think one fun thing is seeing a pattern given and then seeing what everyone choses to do with it. completely different looks. Mine kinda looks like a country Christmas, then you have the other end with the black and blue very striking and orange and b/w is very modern.. and Jan has hers bursting next to the more subtle fabrics its so fun. If you have started early can you post your pics too? I am thinking of doing another set in another set of fabrics since I have time and fabric.. could work as another gift for the holiday next year and how easy would that be? I really like the choices so far. and found lol the crossroads easier to do than the stripe. Love how you wont lose any points either when its sewn up. an issue of mine at times.. less points the better.

    Everyone's blocks look great! Mine I will call "Chicken Soup", as there are chopped up piece of chicken and egg all through the fabric. lol. I thought this would be a better choice of fabric. This may end up being my center block, since it is so bright. I got this fabric at a yard sale in a big storage container full of fabric. It's not my favorite, but there is a lot of it, so I better use it for something.

    I was going to try the other block as well, but I tell you.. the BOM just about kicked my butt yesterday. I thought I would play it safe and try the easy block!

    French Fry, the challenge block was actually easier than the easy block, go figure. I think because there really are no points to match. Give it a try....


    I think what I am going to use to keep my quilts cohesive is to try and use the same fat quarters for a certain number of blocks, than find some more fat quarters in the same color groups to continue with it. Oh that was a BIG run on sentence...lol

    Hi all and a Happy New Year!

    Am new to this site - and relatively new to quilting - and would love to join this QAL. Really looking forward to learning lots of new blocks.

    Am in the UK (in a lovely, though currently rather grey, patch of countryside in Sussex) so won't be able to join the forum chat, but will be checking in and posting pics as I go along. Everything posted so far looks really great - looking forward to seeing the rest of the blocks!

    Right; better get started...

    I wish my sister sewed as well. She is a crocheter.. pffft. lol. My grandmother taught us each both skills- I can't stand to crochet, and my sister would rather eat a bug than sit in front of a sewing machine.

    A little slow getting started but will do the blocks this weekend. Working on the first 8 blocks for a Civil War Quilt for my oldest GS. and doing a couple other BOM groups. I like to keep several projects going so I don't get bored with them. Will also be using my scraps so it will be interesting.
    Have a great Quilting Day.

    Think I will give this a go -- my quilting time is pretty chopped up but if I can grab a few minutes a couple of times today I should be able to do one.

    mommak good job your little sis didnt tell you working with plaids and checks is the hardest beside stripes to work with did she? even if you line up a block its hard hard to match those fabric designs. I am impressed you got yours done. SIS where were you when fabric selection came about? lol glad she got you to join its awful fun in here. I am excited to see where they take us later on. I see chat is lit up so I am thinking ideas are flying! uh oh .. calm down ladies be reasonable with your choices.. and are there men in there? chippendale dancers perhaps? sure seems like a lot of you ran to the chat room.. gotta be something good going on .. better tell all about it later.
