QAL progress updates

I love having a balance of things going on in my sewing room.  Long term projects, mixed with quick finishes.  Projects where the design and innovation are all mine mixed with following along with someone else's blocks.

I also like mixing up and using different fabrics.  It all works to keep me motivated and excited because there is always something that I want to sew.

I blog about my block by block progress at my A Stitch in Time blog.  Here are some recent group photos.

There are two QALs associated with the Farmer's Wife 1930's book (one hosted by VeryKerryBerry  and the other by  Gnome Angel).  I've made 65 of the 99 blocks so far - this photo shows the first 63.

Next up is the Splendid Sampler hosted by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson .  I'm using a bundle of Christmas fabric for this one.  All the details on the QAL can be found here.  There will be 100 blocks in this one.  I've made 22 of them so far and this photo shows the first 20.

Finally, Crossroad's QAL sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop.  For this one, I'm using a layer cake of Sweetwater Elementary along with yardage.  (Information on that QAL can be found  here.)

Have a wonderful day! Patty
