    Autumn Evenings BOW Sampler Quilt-along

    Piecing the Past is again hosting a free BOW project, Autumn Evenings. To see the quilt and sign up for the weekly block patterns, go here:

    http://www.piecingthepastquilts.com/autumn-evenings-bow

    This BOW began on Sept. 18, but if you sign up now you may be able to download the missed first week, along with the second week's block that will be emailed out on 9/25/17. So hurry! Blocks are free during the current week, but past blocks will have to be purchased for $.99 per block.

    I joined recently ans went ahead and purchased the kit. We have one quilt shop locally and it's just not my style. There are several shops all over this part of NC but the closest one is aboit 25 miles with the rest a whole lot farther - and besides I'm just plain lazy!!!! The fabrics in the kit are exactly what I like with a few that will stretch my colorbox. I have everything printed out so far and just need to get a good sized binder - will put the pages into clear top loading pages. I like binders!!! Sure hope mine come out as beautifully as yours. Need to clean a few things cleaned up so I can reach my machine.

    Nice block, Christine!

    I wasn't going to do this one as the quilts ready to quilt are stacking up. But maybe I will. These blocks are 12 inchers and that would add up fast. I STILL have this huge tub of fresh lilac fabrics and scraps that have been calling to me. Anxious to see Ladyinpurple's blocks with the kit. Sew glad to see this thread up. It's my social media.

    I'll be following along again, but not sewing. I'll have to build up my collection of Civil War prints before I can do justice to these patterns.

    Beautiful blocks, Christine and Mary! It's amazing how different the blocks can look depending on the fabric choices.

    I might... just for the camaraderie. I didn't like this quilt at all, at first, but now it's starting to grow on me. Might squeeze in the time for a block a week. We'll see how I do with my other projects.

    It's funny you said this... because I was thinking of doing this one with other-than-civil-war fabrics. I do have a lot of them collected tho, from Rest and Refreshing. I also have a huge stash of 1930's repros left from a Farmer's Wife quilt. I might use my 30's!

    So... are all the center blocks 8" squares, surrounded by the star parts that make it into a 12" block?

    Christine, I haven't started on my alter. blocks. I need more neutrals . I guess I will do them as I go once I get the neutrals. The last quilt I waited and did all the 9 patch blocks last. I was so bored making them by the end.

    Hi everyone!
    So, this will be my first BOW... I'm usually more focused on the UFO Challenge and the Fabric Moratorium Challenge. I have been so SLACK on the UFO thread lately... but have done very well on the Moratorium... until last week, that is.

    Christine and Mary, your blocks are just BEAUTIFUL!!

    And LadyinPurple, you probably aren't too terribly far from me... I work in Charlotte, so perhaps we can get together sometime. We could go on our own little "Shop Hop" if you like.


    And the comment about Civil War repro or not... well, I have a nice little stash of those... as well as the 1930's repro's... I may just do this in both colorways (I'm such a glutton for punishment! )

    Hopefully, I'll get in soon enough to get the first block. If not, 99 cents is not going to break the bank. Now, I need to check my email and see if it's come in yet.

    I'm glad I found this(still finding my way around the board). I have downloaded everything, but still not sure about fabrics. In the mean time I'll follow along on this thread. I'm liking what you ladies are producing so far! Are you using the same fabrics for your alternate blocks as the background of the star blocks?

    Glad to see some new people and some of the regulars. Letawellman, My son is a well digger. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with your screenname. Or maybe your real name is Leta Wellman,anyway welcome too. lol Jaiade I just today ordered several neutrals and am going to use them for the alter. blocks. I usually just pick a color similar to what the pattern calls for my blocks. I'm not crazy about pink so I usually use a mauve color,etc. The last 2 quilts done from this same site a lot of people used other colors completely different and they turned out so pretty. Just please show us your blocks we all love to see them. .

    LetWellman - I know exactly where you are in SC. I totaled my sweet Acura RSX Type S on i85 almost 5 years ago right about there!!!! Anyway, it's cool to find someone close. A visit together would be fun - maybe lunch? I live about 30 miles or so up I77 from Charlotte. One of these days maybe I'll even get this project started!!!!!

    Oh, it's so cute to read the chat here. I fell behind on the R&R, and I ought to get back to it before I start something new. I like the look of this pattern better than the R&R. I like the R&R name better than Autumn Evenings though. lolol

    Hi Leta,
    If you joined after a Monday, you will need to write to Debbie and ask her to send you the email for that week. She sends them out early on Monday mornings and will not automatically 'catch you up'. You have to ask.

    Mary I used some questionable civil war prints for my neutral ones using some scrap pieces that were given to me. Beautiful block #2.

    I did the summer sew along in 30's prints and it turned out Great.

    I think anything you use will be good. Use what you have this pattern is good for using scraps and odds and ends up.

    Ok here is my block #2 had some issues but it I'd good enough for me now. Also finished alternate blocks as well.

    All of your blocks are so nice. I haven't started making the blocks yet as I have one more block from the first BOW. This is really a fun BOW to do. Sometimes life gets in the way and I get really behind but hope to catch up soon but sure do enjoy see everyone's pretty blocks.
