Quilt as you go and Quilt along.

Just so you know I didn't run away or fall of the edge of the earth, I am posting what I am working on.

I am in the process of making a queen size quilt as you go quilt.  Here are the three blocks I hope to get quilted tonight.
The fabric is part of a FQ collection from Connecting Threads called sweet and sour. Oranges, purples, aquas, greens and neutrals - how fun is that?















I am also doing the Moose on the Porch Jelly Roll Quilt Along --what a name!  Here is my latest block.
I am using a Simple Abundance jelly roll with muslin as my background fabric.



Okay, Now I am off to start quilting those big blocks. (they are almost FQ size)

I have some of those sweet and sour fabrics- they are so fun and will make a very funky quilt- Some day I am going to make a quilt as you go quilt.
I know you will be having fun with this project.
Regards,

The sweet and sour fabrics are great, I've got some I'm trying to find the right project for. Moose on the porch is better than 'bill collector at the door' dontcha think??

The new quilt looks like it will be a fun one! I like the colors!

Oh, love that Simple Abundance. And just as a bit of trivia, I live about 15 or 20 minutes from Moose on the Porch (she has a machine quilting business too). Love how your quilt-as-you-go project is coming out!
