Yup, that is the hashtag for the DCMQG’s quilt along this year.  Anna of LifeSewCrafty designed it for us and sets out great instructions  for each block.  Go check it out – anyone can follow along.  We all started out strong and there were a number of snow days that we were all home sewing, so that helped.  We have all slowed down on this, but as soon as school was out I decided to get caught up.  Blocks 1 – 13 were already on my design wall.  As you can see, this is another Kaffe Fassett quilt.

DCMQG 2016 QAL 1-13

Here is what I finished up in the last week or so…

Block 14  I debated on using white as the solid, but there is so much white in some of the other blocks that I decided to try another color.

Block 14


Block 15  This one is huge (24.5″ square) and I relearned how to make quarter-square triangles.  Anna had great instructions and pictures for this.

Block 15

Block 16  Another huge block and quarter-square triangles too!

block 16

Block 17 – This involved half-rectangle triangles.  I have done these before  but it was good to revisit them before I totally forgot how to do them.  Plus I was in the background color quandary again.  More white?  Nope, went for that soft green instead.

Block 17

Block 18  This was the second theme block.  For the first one I substituted two of my favorite leaf blocks and so for this one I wanted a different leaf block.  I saw a picture of this block that was named Vintage Leaf block and it had a stem in the lower right hand corner.  There were no instructions, but it was easy enough to draft it.  I am not sure if I will embroider a stem…for now I like it as it is!

Block 18

Now I am ready to move on.  Block 19 has not been posted. I guess I will need to work on something else…as if it would be hard to find something to do!
