going further


I have managed a bit of a catch up on the How Far Will You Go? QAL blocks.

First I made the Dutch Rose, which is a 20" block:


Then I made the Clay's Choice blocks:



It's been a little while since I've worked on this and I've fallen in love with the fabrics all over again. It's so fun picking out which ones to use in each block. I have no grand plan, I just chose fabrics before starting work on each block.

Here's a collage of all the other blocks I've made so far, with no accurate depiction of scale mind you!




I really am learning a lot doing this QAL and the blocks are so fun thanks to the great tutorials by Jess and Jess. They've actually posted all the tutorials now and I'm playing catch up as there is another couple of weeks before they focus on putting the blocks together. I'd really recommend checking it out!
