Quilt-a-Long | Almost Done!

Crazy Mom Amanda Jean's star quilt-a-long is coming to an end! I'm glad that I was able to keep up (most of the time) and I'm really happy with how all of my blocks came out, but I am sad to see it come to an end. I am not sure what Amanda Jean has up her sleeve, but I sure hope this isn't the last group activity. I've learned and accomplished so much, and I can't wait to see what's next. If you missed out this time, or you've been sitting on the fence (like I did for the first quilt-a-long), I encourage you to jump right in next time!

I've been catching up on some blocks:

Week 12's block:

Week 13's block:

And week 5's block from the first quilt-a-long:

This brings my grand total to 24 blocks ... just one more to make before I begin assembling the top! I haven't decided what my last block will be. I may repeat one of the stars ... or pick one of the 2 blocks that I haven't made yet from QAL1 ... or I might even go "off the grid" and make a rogue block of my own choosing. Stay tuned to see what I decide ... ... ..

As always, here's the mosaic to show what my quilt top might look like:


  1. Your blocks look great! I came to blogland too late to participate, but I am hoping I can catch the next one!

  2. that looks so beautiful!
    I would love to do one of the quilt-alongs! I just couldn't do it this spring, too much going on :-(
    Hopefully next time!

  3. Oh I forgot! I get so many compliments on my new bag! It's a perfect size for me, and it is just gorgeous :-)
    And the music is playing all the time :-)
    Thank you so much for it all!

  4. Great blocks! I need to bite the bullet and join her swap the next time's great to do things in weekly chunks!

  5. Lovely, lovely, lovely. I can't wait to see it all put together.
    P.S. Shouldn't you have 25 blocks? 12 from QAL1 and 13 from QAL2?

  6. I'm so glad you updated your photos...I'm linking to this post in the final installment of the quilt along. :)
