Hope you’re having a good weekend, and working in a little bit of sewing time. We’re having a windy and rainy Sunday afternoon in Oregon so it’s the perfect weather to sit in and sew.
I’ve joined a new quilt-along by Quilt Art Designs called the Forest QAL. This is a 12-week QAL, and I worked on weeks 1 and 2 this weekend. It costs $1 per week for the pattern, and there is still time to catch up if you want to join. This is a paper-pieced pattern, and I’d recommend that you have some paper-piecing experience since some of the pieces are small.
For week 1, we pieced together some trees and sky:
I’m using a combination of modern print fabrics and solids for my quilt. My goal is to work entirely from my stash for this project.
For week 2, we pieced together more trees plus a little red bird and a chameleon, both hiding in the trees. Look how tiny some of the pieces are in the chameleon’s face!!
Here are the first 2 weeks, sewn together:
For week three, we get to work on the flying geese in the sky section!
I’ve also been working quite a bit on mini quilts for some Instagram swaps. I’ll be able to blog about these soon and show you some pictures.
Linking up with Paper Piecing Part #10!
Wow this is going to be something amazing when it is done.
I’ll be a spectator for this one; looks good so far, and kitty seems to agree.
Love the fabrics you chose! This is a fun project, isn’t it?
What fun! I love your fabrics!
Wow! Love the 2 blocks! You have a fun stash for sure!! I need to get in on this QAL!! Thanks!
What an interesting quilt, love it and your colors.
