Beginner Quilt Along Week 1 - Trial and Error Tuesday


Beginner’s Quilt-Along

I completed my first block for Quilting Gallery's Beginner's Quilt-Along.


That's one big 9 patch!  Of course, they are calling it Play a Game of Hopscotch to make it more fun for summer.

Jamie at Stitches to Sprinkles and I were discussing choosing fabrics for this quilt along.  She has chosen some Bunny Hill fabric that is just going to look marvelous!  I agonized over what to use.  Do I dive into my beloved Flea Market fancy even though there are at least 2 patterns I hope to use it with?  Do I dare order more?  Then it came to me like a slap in the face one night, "You big dope!  Pick a couple colors and use fabrics in your stash.  That's what samplers were made for silly!"  So, I chose pink, because with 3 little girls, someone is always wanting something new that is PINK!

Can't wait to see what the next block is!

  1. Love ut! I'm waiting on a kona white charm pack to finish mine. My block will be shocking pink, turquoise, limeand yellow retro print. Isn't it fun to see everyone's fabrics?

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
