Before this year I had never done a quilt along; now I've done 3! First the Triangle Quilt Along back in the spring, the Texas Quilt Along in the summer, and now I'm doing the Fair Isle Quilt Along from Freshly Pieced!
Here are the first 2 weeks worth of blocks up on the wall. You can see I am going ahead and piecing them into rows as I go. I originally thought that I wouldn't like QALs because I normally work much faster that that pace. Turns out it's kind of nice to take a project so slow! Plus it gets me to do things I normally wouldn't try.
I also finished this simple strip quilt top this week. All the colors were pulled from that floral fabric at the top and bottom. Now I just need to trim it up, baste and quilt!
And my strings were in desperate, desperate need of sorting. So last evening to folded them all into color piles. Time to do something with these :)
