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