Who is up for my second quilt along (QAL)? I will launch my next QAL, Value Proposition on Friday, April 18, 2014. It is a hexagon quilt made entirely of 1" hexagons. Over the next several days I'll provide information leading up to the launch so you'll be ready to start sewing next weekend! Thereafter I'll post the block patterns every two weeks. Are you excited? I am!
This is my next GG (Godstone Grannies) diamond block. I quite like the lacy feel of this one and I am satisfied with the colours so there will be no alterations to the fabric unlike the block I showed you yesterday! This diamond will be one of a pair. I will make some slight alterations to the layout of some of the hexagons in the second diamond so that the second one will have a slightly different look. The hexies are 3/4" in size so they stitch up a little slower than the 1" size but they are a nice size for fussy cuts!
It is a beautiful day today so I'm off to help my Mom with her garden. When that is done I'll cut out the April block from Julia's Hexie BOM. The April block is a basket and I know what I'm going to do! You can see the April block here. I'm making each block out of blue fabrics (I've always wanted a blue and white quilt). I'll post pictures when it is done!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
I love your diamond-very pretty.ReplyDelete
Is your next quilt along using the reproduction fabrics?
I so love your Godstone Grannies! Enjoying seeing your progress on those. I am very excited to start your next QAL! I can't wait to see what you are cooking up for us!!!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend.
Beautiful block, Karen. Loving all those rich browns. I'll follow along on the new QAL and perhaps start it once I finish Soupçon - lol.. I'm sure it will be wonderful.ReplyDelete
Lovely block, Karen -- thinking about the QAL.ReplyDelete
I'd love to do your quilt along. but not sure I can keep up with your timetable. Still haven't started the fourth border from the last one! Is it going to be as fast moving as the last one? how about I just say I'll tryReplyDelete
I love the browns. Would have loved to join your QAL as I would learn A LOT from you...but can't due to previous commitments...I will be stopping by and keeping up with everyone's progress though...and taking notes! :)ReplyDelete
I'd better get a wriggle on with some other projects if i am to have any hope of joining in on this one. I did have a "finish" yesterday and have planned the next border for Soupcon, Love today's Godstone block, some very interesting fussy cuts and fabric combo'sReplyDelete
Love hexagon projects (have 2 growing slowly already). Maybe with a QAL I'll actually finish one up. Your diamonds are looking fantastic.ReplyDelete
The GG's are looking good Karen! I am looking forward to seeing what you have for us in your next quilt-along. I'm not sure I'll have time to play along this time but I definitely will be following!ReplyDelete
I love si much your diamonds! ! ! ! ! ! A QAL with hexagons!!!!! Maybe i'll follow you''''''ReplyDelete
Certainly i'll do.....
I'm loving your GG blocks. I'll have to follow the QAL, in spirit, until I get some UFO's off my list. In the meantime I'll continue to learn from your postings. It's like having a private tutor.ReplyDelete
