Bitten by the QAL Bug ;-)

One of my first quilting experiences started with a Quilt Along in 2010 - the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along - it was just perfect for a beginner ;-)

Then, in 2012, I did the HST BOM - you can see photos of the completed items in my Flickr album (I am not sure what has happened to the photos on this blog for the JRSQA - the posts are still here, but the photos seem to have disappeared :( )

Now that I have been well and truly bitten by the QAL bug, I was on the look out for another QAL and discovered the A4A QAL - Aiming for Accuracy Quilt Along run by Quilters Gallery - see link on sidebar to get further information.

It took me a little while to pick out my fabrics - but now that I have, it is full steam ahead.
A4A QAL Fabrics
My Selection
starting with a 6 FQ pack from Spotlight, and adding some Kaufman Night & Day and other black/yellow/white/grey fabrics from my stash

A4AQAL-Block#1
block #1 - think I might redo this one with better contrast

A4AQAL-Block#2
Block #2 - I love how this one turned out

A4A QAL Block#3
Block #3 - this one was a little more tricky and involved a bit of 'reverse' sewing ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
