Jacquie Quilts Along...Finally

It's week 5 of AmandaJean's quilt-a-long at Crazy Mom Quilts. I started last night and after I made the first block, I got in the groove and kept on going. Block 5 is cut out and ready to be sewn. I chose a combo of Urban Chicks Swell and Katie Jump Rope fabric. I haven't quite decided what fabric to use in the setting blocks so I may wait to tackle those. My original plan was to do one quilt in green and blue and another in 30's repros. We'll see if that comes to pass. Right now I'm happy I'm caught up. On her last quilt-a-long I didn't start until week 8. Better late than never. I'm so pleased with these blocks. AmandaJean has great instructions and pictures. I really didn't think I'd like working with so many triangles, but it's not too bad when you get the hang of it. Doing it over and over and over is really good practice for me! A bit of pressing and they're done. Oh happy day!
btw if I haven't returned an email lately I lost between 50 and 100 emails yesterday. Messed up internet connection I think. If I haven't responded in a timely manner or at all that's why. So sorry blog pals! So if you need to get in touch, please try again. Thanks!

You inspire me! I would like to do the Quilt Along too but haven't started, or bought the background fabric. What am I waiting for??? Your blocks look great, nice and springy/summery.

These are so pretty, I love the last one. Your ability to pick fabrics that complement each other is so impressive. Thanks for the comment on the plant theft, good thing they left my precious tomatoes alone!

driftwood said...

they're lovely, I'm so ashamed that I still haven't finished the first quiltalong, and this one has way too many triangles for me, but I love it!

What fabulous fabrics you are using. I am so tempted to make Amanda Jean's quilt along project but I have taken a vow to finish my UFOs before I start anything new.

Stacy A. said...

Oh I love the fabric combos. They look fantastic, you busy lady. Can you tell me how to get in a groove like that? I think I need a groove coach, lol. I can't wait to see how this ones turns out with the setting blocks! Have a great weekend!
