Crazy Quilt Along Lady


Mark you calendars!  Even with all the craziness of the quilt show and Strawberry Festival, I managed to stay completely caught up on all the QAL's and BOM's.  Above are all the Aurifil Designer Blocks of the Month to date.  This month's block was called Faux Weave and was by super talented and fun guy Matthew Boudreaux, better known to most of us as Mister Domestic (read Pat Sloan's interview with Matthew here).


The color of the month was red--hot, hot, hot!  This block was much fun to put together and contained some very thin strip sets.  My "weave" had some wobbles and bobbles, but if I tried weaving in real life, I feel pretty sure I'd have the same result, so score!

After all the hotness of Faux Weave, I decided to chill a bit and work on Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilt's Have A Jolly Little Christmas Quilt.  The block was called All Wrapped Up.


All wrapped up in adorable cuteness!  The next block, Holly & Berries, is due to be released this weekend.  Hopefully, the long weekend will allow me time to stitch it up.

Then I moved on to the Medallion Quilt BOM by Cindy at Stitchin At Home.  Broken Dishes is the third of the twelve 12" blocks.  


Squares in squares always make me nervous, but with Cindy's instructions, I breezed right on through and ended up with blocks the size they where suppose to be.

And last but not least, the beast in my living room, Pat Sloan's 182 Solstice Challenge Quilt.  As of the second I'm typing this, I am caught up completely on this monster huge quilt (for a quilt along quilt anyway).  This is not the best picture, but I had to get another picture of the quilt "all together."


After making the big block in the lower right hand corner, Weather Vane, I pieced the entire bottom row together.  I also pieced the last checker board section and attached it to the Day into Night block.  The only thing left to do is wait for the last three 12" blocks to be released over the next three weeks, then this top will be finished.  How in the world did I manage to stay on top of this one?

Well this concludes today's installment of the Crazy Quilt Along Lady.  Join us next week to find out will she stay ahead of the Solstice Monster or will it wrangle her completely to the ground?  Will the Jolly Christmas Quilt snowball and roll right over top of her leaving her flat and cold?  Will she piece together all of her Freefall Blocks or pile them together and run through them?



Or will she just start 20 more projects and laugh madly?? 


Today I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers and Wednesday Wait Loss.

Wow Tish, you have been one busy girl. Thanks for the link to the Faux weave, going to give it a try.

Lorna McMahon said...

You are amazing! How do you do it?!!! All of your quilt along blocks are beautiful. It must make you so happy to see these quilts come together at the end. I can just picture you running through the leaves before piecing them into rows though....

You are amazing, Tish, and must not be sleeping at all! That Summer Solstice quilt is huge; somehow the scale of that wasn't dawning on me until I saw this photo.

Hi Tish,
I just hope a snowball doesn't get you before next week. I am sure you have family and friends that would miss you, not to mention us. You should be feeling very accomplished - these blocks are awesome. ~smile~

Geesh that was a lot to get done in addition to your other stuff. Nice going Tish.

Paige said...

Tish, well done! I need some of your energy!

Nancy J said...

Busy, that is an understatement!!! What a massive Solstice quilt, lovely last block, and just 3 more..., and all the other things on the go, like RUST, I think you never sleep.

Oh Tish you are either crazy or brilliant! These blocks are turning into some awesome set of wonderful quilts. At the end of this craziness you are going to have so many beautiful quilts. Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss!

WOW WOW WOW How you've managed to keep up with all the QAL's is amazing. No time to get steam rolled by a snowball.

KaHolly said...

You're amazing! I can't even keep up with one!

Sue said...

I'm guessing your're going to join 3 more. I'm not sure how I would separate all the fabrics for all the projects if I was doing this. I'm pretty sure it would drive me mad. Well done in holding onto your sanity!

krislovesfabric said...

Those are some really thin strips,wow! Looks like you have sure been busy!

Emily said...

Tish, you are too funny! I love the way you write about your escapades. Congrats on staying on top of all your QALs. I especially love your bundled snowmen.

Jayne said...

I'm pretty sure you will outlast all these QAL's. Maybe a little crazy will set in, but you'll make it through these. However, you may go stark raving mad if you add more in to the mix! Kudos for staying caught up!

Susan said...

Such thin pieces -maybe heavy doses of sizing would have helped the wobbles and bobbles? Thanks for sharing all the pretty blocks on Midweek Makers!
