Well, we’re up to block #9 out of 12 for the Sew Happy Quilt QAL and here’s today’s block, a churn dash reduction. I have a feeling that flying geese and HSTs are never going to be my firm friends, however, I’ve battled them into submission for another week…
Since that one’s progressing nicely, I thought I’d get to cutting up the fabric for the Stained QAL, which my dozy friend in the north, Sarah, is hosting. I was meant to have shown the unhacked pile of fat quarters before I got fell in, however I’d missed that memo, so you’ll just have to trust me that this is 11 fat quarters of Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush line in the Charmed palette, plus white sashing strips:
That was quite a lot of cutting, at least 3 films’ worth, plus breaks!
So what are you up to?
You QAL gals are cracking me up with those little bags. Have ye ever been so organized? 🙂
So – were they good films?
for someone who claims not to be friendly with HSTs and flying geese your points are beautiful!
I'm going with white sashing on Sarah's QAL too! Your block is great and HSTs aren't supposed to be our friends, we are just supposed to manage to make them submit to your will occasionally.
Dont listen to Cinders… Your bags look beautifully organised 🙂
Katy did you see any of the films or was your head down and bum up?
I missed something with the bags. What's up with that?
Another amazing block!! It's such a great feeling to get to the other side of cutting. It all looks so organised!
You have been busy bee as always. Looking forward to see what will happen with Innocent crush.
I lovethe look of HSTs and flying geese, but I'm not a fan of making them either. I *will* get started on my Stained Down Under, sometime soon!
I have a love/hate relationship with HSTs but then made too many for a border on one quilt! Duh!
Yours look great though so think you should learn to love them!
OOOOH. I love the sound of the stained glass fabrics – a bit of AMH. Yummy!
I started the cutting for the Stained QAl, but I'm afraid I don't have your attention span! I only managed the first 4
QALs–so easy to get sucked in. In fact, I didn't know about either of these. So of course I had to research them. They look great. Might have to join in. Better late than never, right?
