QAL Progress

6a011168a24766970c013482c78103970c-320wi

I completed the second step of Kelly’s Between Charming Friends Quilt Along last night.  There was a lot of piecing and cutting but everything went along quickly and easily thanks to having learned how to strip…strip piece, i.e.  *wink*

The Quilt Along is spread out over eight weeks which makes this a relaxed and very do-able project.   Darlene of Quilting Daze  designed the quilt which she called Between Friends.

It’s still not too late to join in.  We won’t be told about the third step until next Wednesday so you still have lots of time to catch up.  The more the merrier!

Heidi said...

Still sewing mine Kaaren and it hurts to be so far out of my comfort zone. I am a little more than scared using these bright colors. I am plugging on hoping I will learn to appreciate the colors more when I have finished this quilt. Yours is looking fabulous. I love the softness to your fabrics.

Have a great weekend dear friend!

That is coming along nicely. Great color choice.

I was tempted to join in but I am trying to finish more than I start. Not easy when such lovely things come along to tempt me.

Terry said...

Your blocks are so pretty Kaaren! I have saved the instructions for this but I haven't had a chance to start on mine yet.

Thank you for sharing your quilt along. Seeing what you have done has inspired me to try to use this pattern with some fabric that I've been saving.

Happy quilting.
