#500 quilt blocks QAL

Ok, this is probably ridiculous because I don't think anyone has read my blog but I am starting a QAL from the book 500 quilt blocks as mentioned in my last post.
I plan on making as many blocks as I think I need for a quilt and since I have started I have picked a red pink purple blue colour scheme.
Join in if you want!

Block 1- Granny square

Block 2- Churn Dash

Block 3- Father's choice

I am not worrying too much about colours at the moment but I am going to try to stick to the scheme, I think this is something that unifies sampler quilts.

Back to it

Hi there,

I have joined an online quilting bee, through Threadbias and now I am seriously hooked, so many nice comments that now I just want to sew more.

Here are my blocks for May

I am really happy with how they turned out.

I have another idea now. I bought the book by Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry Green, it is called 500 quilt blocks, I think I will try to make 1 block a month from there and maybe put them into a quilt at the end. Similar to the farmers wife quilt along. Ambitious? Maybe, but if I don't set goals, I won't get there.

Next idea..I'll save that for the next post.
