Quilt-a-Long (Week 4)

Hey everyone! I hope all of you (well, at least those of you in the U.S.!) enjoyed a long weekend. Today was our 7-year anniversary, so we tried to enjoy the weekend as much as possible*. That, combined with my class in Chicago for most of last week, didn't allow for too much time to work on my many projects. I did, however, manage to turn out a few more of AmandaJean's quilt-a-long blocks.

Here's week 4's block:



And from the first quilt-a-long, week 8's block:


... and week 11's block:


I'm still thrilled about how this quilt is going to look when all's said and done. Here are the 12 blocks I've already completed:


* P.S. In case you're wondering, we celebrated our anniversary on Saturday. We got a babysitter and went for a long hike around a lake near our house, followed by dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and a movie ("Iron Man"). Good movie, by the way. I'm not a fan of Robert Downey Jr. or of Gwyneth Paltrow, but I am a HUGE fan of comic book movies ... and I actually think all of the actors were great in this movie. If you're into this sort of thing, make sure you stay past ALL of the credits for a fun surprise scene.

  1. Love your colors in this block! I'm a fan of the pink/brown combo, and this block really sets it off.

    I'm planning on doing blocks 4 and 5 tomorrow- been busy working on another quilt all weekend!

  2. your blocks look great! My husband loved Iron Man too.

    question for you: as a quilter and a man, how do you choose your fabric? It would seem that alot of fabric is quite girly, what do you think?

  3. The quilt blocks look great! I need to start trying to make some blocks. Log Cabin is on my list for June.
    Sounds like a fun anniversary date. My husband and I don't go out very often without our daughter. When we do get out together we can never decide what to do, we're lost without her.

  6. John, little Clancy is adorable. I hear the golden doodles are great with kids, even when they get big.

    Your blocks look great. Are you using only fabrics from "full moon forest" or are you adding a few others. I couldn't quite tell. It will make a beautiful quilt. Those fabrics are so full of wonder and delight. Love Stacy

  10. I love your blocks! I think you chose an incredible line to use for the colors, as I love Tula Pink. They are really turning out very very nice. If I could only get my points to look like yours... :)
