Sewalong Updates

I'm sewing along with a few different groups doing a few different blocks so as I catch up, I'm updating my status.

The Red Sky At Night Sew Along is I think my favorite right now, but that could change like the wind.....   I LOVE red so when  Jodi from Tales of Cloth did her blocks in red and white I did the same.  The first block "Peace and Plenty" was last week's block.  Don't even ask what I was doing last Monday when it came out.  I don't remember 2 hours ago so I won't remember why I didn't do that last week.  The next two are today's block.  Jodi said she'd be doing a couple of weeks with 2 or 3 blocks so there we have it "Broken Dishes & Whirlpool".
We are up to 9 blocks now and i'm thinking this might become my all time favorite quilt that will for sure stay living in my house!

The next sew along/BOM is the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery BOM.
I just got my kit on Saturday but had last month's kit sitting on my cutting table so I decided last night that I needed to get them done right away.  I'm always afraid with these projects that the fabric comes in the mail that I'll set it aside and lose it and then what do i do?

First up Block #9 is called "Dear Robert".  It was designed by Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters    Lynne says "My biggest fan and supporter, my best friend and hero".

Block # 10 is called "Sunshine Lily" and it was designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs  Anne says "My grand-daughter is filled with happiness and laughter.  She makes me smile like no one else can, and her hugs and kisses are the best."

I love that each designer said something nice about their block and explains how it got it's name.

I pulled the finishing kit out last night to see how it's going to be set and was pleasantly surprised to see it's not really set sampler style but more like each block borders a center one.

I had all 10 blocks up on the design wall to see how they looked and fall in love with them every time I see them all together.

Only 2 more blocks and it can all get set together!

If anyone likes this project and want to make it, I'll send you the patterns after I'm done with them.....

You accomplish so much! Of course, I love the red and white blocks.

I love the red and white blocks. I've been wanting to do a red and white quilt for awhile now. As much as I'm trying to stick to getting my already kitted projects done, it is things like this that distract me.
