QP blocks - September update

I am really enjoying making these downsized blocks from the Quilter's Planner QAL.

Here is my September block

These are all nine of my 6'' blocks.  My current plan is to assemble them into a pillow!

I love having blocks to make for a QAL in between all my larger projects.  It gives one quite the sense of accomplishment!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I agree that QALs are perfect for feeling a sense of accomplishment. They are also fun to look forward to working on each month. :) Your blocks are looking great together!

  2. Nice blocks. It's nice to have small intermediate goals to get those senses of accomplishments. It helps with any project to have targets and celebrate, no matter how small the celebration, which a milestone is met. I try not to get bummed out when a goal is not met. I lived by deadlines in my high stress job and it added to the stress. Most of the goals were out of my control completely. Many of them were mandated by the government. I worked on many payroll and personell computer systems. When a change was made to a regulation that effected compensation in any way, the deadline was not flexible amd companies were subject to huge fines. It's nice to be able to have a reasonable pace now. Thanks for sharing your lovely blocks.

  3. What a great pillow that will make!

  4. Very pretty and colorful. They will make a beautiful pillow.


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