Growing Up QAL - January

This year I'm joining in the fun with Alida (TweLoQ) Designs 2017 Quilt- Along. We will be exploring 12 different piecing techniques throughout the year.

Our deadline to complete Block 1 (Silhouette Applique) is February 5th. Of course, as always, I'm so near the deadline. BUT....I did it...and a few days to spare....how about that!

Here is my Block 1. Alida provided excellent instructions and the pattern. Thanks Alida for all the time you've put into this QAL.


It's hard to see in the above photo but I used sparkly fabric for the flower silhouette and metallic thread for the applique stitches.



 It worked well and the flower stands out nicely against the red background. 

February we will be doing a traditional pieced block and March we will tackle a curved pieced block. 

See you next time!
Live On!
Quilt On!
