Hi everyone! I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone! We’ve gotten both of our older daughter’s teacher assignments and I went ‘Back to School’ clothes shopping for them on Monday. I can’t believe that TWO of them will be in school this year! Even though things are a bit crazy around here I’ve still been plugging away at my Block of the Months and Quilt Alongs. Here’s what I’ve accomplished since the last update:
Now let’s take a look at the newest Quilt Along that I’ve started participating in –
In previous posts I showed you:
- Block 1 – ‘Tinsel from Fiberosity’ but already since then – three more block designs have come out!
Block 2 – ‘Through the Window’ from Pat Sloan
Block 3 – Wrap it Up from Melanie Dramatic
Block 4 – from Pam Kitty Morning
Now let’s take a look at the new blocks I’ve created since then…
- Block 5 – Kelsey Creates
- Block 6 – Swim Bike Quilt
- Block 7 – Persimon Dreams
- Block 8 – Saskirana
- Block 9 – QuiltJane
- Bock 10 – Kristy Daum
- Block 11 – Kristy Daum
- Block 12 – Fat Quarter Shop
And since these blocks are all different sizes my typical mosaic maker isn’t going to work to show off this quilt…you’ll have to do with semi-fuzzy pictures from my design wall of my progress. I’m five blocks behind the tutorials posted…that will soon by 7 I’m sure but I’m going to keep working at it! I’m really liking how eclectic this is turning out…
See how other’s are turning out by checking out the flickr group:

2012 8-inch Sampler Quilt from all different Quilt Along’s, Block’s of the Months, and my Own Ideas! – 58 blocks made!
I have two of every block made for the Blogger’s BOM! As usual, I’m anxiously awaiting the 25th so I can see what the next block is.
I haven’t done any more blocks for the Crumb Along….but I haven’t given up on them (I LOVE them)
Can you find the two ‘Spinning Nine’ Blocks I made for my quilt?
I finished the 10 blocks from the New York Beauty Quilt Along! I was definitely getting the hang of these by the end BUT I definitely think I’m going to keep at just 1 each for this quilt – but boy – do I LOVE them!
58 blocks so far…and still counting (I put two in twice to fill up the mosaic…)! Hmm…I wonder how big this is going to get?
You can see what everyone else’s blocks look like:

Fabric Fascination Block of the Month Update
Sometime’s BOM’s are nice to just have the fabric all sent already precut for you – and that’s exactly what I’m doing with FabricFascination’s. I have August’s block somewhere in my craft room…I just need to find out where it is…I’ll post as soon as I find and it and put it together! Sorry about the delay!
Craftsy Block of the Month Update
14 blocks are complete for the Craftsy Block of the Month! Star blocks are up for August! I have the tutorials printed but I have yet to piece them. Which means – there will definitely be anotherupdate post soon!
And here’s the Craftsy Block of the Month Flickr Group if you want to see what others’ looks like:
And that’s all for this edition of the BOM and QAL update!
Which one that I’m doing that you like best? Are you working on a great quilt along that I need to join in on?
