Quilt-Alongs that I have started

I posted last week on some of the many Quilt-alongs I have come across on the web. I decided on two (for now LOL).

The first one is from Karen at Faeries and Fibres that started a week ago. It is a biweekly QAL.
This is my first part done with english paper piecing:

I really enjoyed doing the paper-piecing and will definitely try it again. 

The second one is Pat Sloan's Globetrotting BOM. This one is through Free Quilt Patterns and Washington DC is the first block.
Here is mine:

This is a large block that will be the center with smaller blocks around it. 

Back to working on alphabet blocks now! 

Happy Stitching!


  1. Great blocks. You do such a good job of keeping up with the quilt alongs. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I am still doing the BOMs that I run at the shop, so I can not fall behind on those. I really think I will have to pick either globetrotting or aurifil and stop there. BUT you know I am a push over when it comes to BOMs.
    I like what you have so far.

    1. that's a lot to keep up with Beth! It's so easy to get sucked in to BOM's;)

  3. Thanks for the shout out for my QAL. Your Washington DC block is perfect! It looks so well made (lovely points) and colours really pop! I love the creamy cross on the black background. Very dramatic!
