    Pat Sloan's Winter Fun QAL

    Is anyone doing Pat Sloan's Winter Fun QAL?? Here's a link in case you want to see what I'm talking about.
    https://www.ilovetomakequilts.com/wi...sew-along.html I am not affiliated with anyone on that site. I just thought it would be fun to see your blocks.

    I have the first 7 finished. Two more blocks to go. I need to get the sashing cut next.

    Block #1


    Block #2


    Block #3

    Block #5, Which I changed to a Log Cabin. I just knew that the off kilter Log Cabin pattern wasn't for me.


    Block #6


    Block #7


    I hope anyone else doing this QAL shares their blocks. I'd love to see how yours is coming out.

    What lovely blocks, Judith! I didn't know of this QAL. It looks quite easy and fun. I have a perfect winter layer cake. Maybe after all the holidays I'll be able to start.

    Lovely blocks and such a good use of those red/white holiday fabrics. Love your fussy cuts of the truck and snowmen.

    Here's a photo of the selvedge. Both prints have red trucks on them. Looks like both of them are Susan Winget prints. I bought them at JoAnn Fabrics.

    Very pretty blocks and love your fabrics. I was not aware of this QAL but I will go to the link and check it out. I love BOM or BOW cause I can get at least a block done and it is fun to follow along. Thank you for sharing the link

    Judith, your blocks are lovely and I can’t wait to see your finish. I follow Pat Sloan regularly but I have been traveling over the last couple of months and have not been near a sewing machine.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I decided to make my quilt just a little bit bigger. 4 blocks x 4 blocks. So, I have been scouring my books and magazines for blocks that would look like they fit I seamlessly. So, here's a couple more along with my early possible layout.

    It's coming along nicely, Judith. Maybe I can play with some blocks in a week or 2 or after the new year.

    It looks like a fun sew along. Your fabrics are looking great. Please show us the progress as you make the rest of the blocks.

    What beautiful blocks and fabric, Judith. That cranberry red truck fabric is really appealing.

    Here's another update. And thank you for all your kind words. I am having a lot of fun with this top. I'm not a huge red truck fan. Although, I love the old time truck look. I was just really drawn to the large print fabric because It looked like it was a tree farm. And, lol, of course, the quilt that is displayed on the truck. I am glad it is working out. I picked out and made 3 more blocks yesterday. (Of my choosing.)







    I have 3 more blocks to go. 2 for Pat Sloan and 1 of mine. Another block comes out tomorrow. And the final block comes out on Dec. 4. I have delayed making my last block for the moment. The last blocks are going to need a fussy cut center with my focal fabric. Since one of the prints is really large, I am delaying making my last block in case I need it for that.

    So excited. After tomorrow's block, I will start working on the border treatment I'm going to incorporate.

    This is a variation of the 7th block posted. I thought the placement of the color and the omission of the half square triangles worked better for my quilt.

    And, this one is an extra one I made. I'm not married to the block yet.


    I changed out the 4 corners on the previous block I made to add in the green. I think it sets the block off better.


    And here is the rows with the sashing. I bet you can figure out where Pat's 9th block will go.


    I'm going to make one more block tomorrow to see if I like it better in place of the flying geese block.

    Just a few more days till the last block comes out. And, one final border and my Christmas Quilt will be a completed top.
