Fabric pulls

Perhaps I should have titled this too many quilts, so, so little time!  I just am seriously addicted to QALs - hosting my own or participating in other ones.

Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs has a mystery QAL call Meadow Mist.     I'll be sizing this one down as we go.  Love mysteries!  This quilt uses one medium value, two dark value fabrics plus a primary background and a secondary background.   Here is the fabrics I am thinking of using - would add an off-white to the mix as well.  What do you think?  This is from a Moda (Amy Ellis) line.

Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl has a new QAL called Snowflake Shimmer.    This quilt takes 3 fabrics -  bright white, light color and a dark color for the background.   I intend to size down the blocks - haven't decided yet what my target size is.  But, here are my fabrics (fabric link up here) -

Choice 1 is a more snowflake themed combination

Choice 2 is some modern prints is from the same Moda (Amy Ellis) line as above - although the middle one may need to read more tone on tone.

Soma @ Whiims and Fancies is about to start a Harry Potter Lego paper piecing QAL.  Tempted on that one too!  That would be an all solids quilt for me.

Finally, I've signed up to attend QuiltCon in Savannah next February!!   I'm very excited about all there is to see and do.  Savannah is about a five hour drive for me - totally doable!

I signed up to help with blocks for a charity quilt (or two) associated with the event.  I'll need to make time for those blocks!

I've got some other grays I purchased (but haven't yet photographed) from my LQS that I really love.

Think that will keep me busy!  This list will all be blocks or small quilts (I'm going to downsize the quilts) so it isn't quite as much work as it might first appear!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. The photo's of your fabric pulls are so beautiful Patty. I'm going to Quilt Con as well and I'm really excited as well.

  2. My goodness, you ARE busy! I like Choice 2 for the Snowflake Shimmer, but agree, the middle one doesn't have a lot of contrast with the darker piece. Have fun with all of your projects!

  3. I'm so glad you will be sewing along with me and the Snowflake Shimmer QAL. I will be curious to see which fabric grouping you choose to work with. :)

  4. I seldom do QALs! But yours was fun! I'm also participating in The Sugar Block Club BOM, but haven't done Julys block yet. Have fun with yours! XO

  5. Ah yay I am planning to qal with Soma too...feel a slight tug on the snowflake one but think I will resist as I am deep in several others at the moment. I loooove that print in the middle, tone on tone or's my fave of the ones you've shown.

  6. WooHoo, love your fabrics choices for both the Meadow Mystery and the Snowflake Shimmer QAL. I'm participating in both as well as going to QuiltCon 2017. Maybe we can meet up there.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
