Finish It Up Friday & FreeFallQAL #4

I finished the 6 blocks for my #freefallqal.  I love they way they come together and most likely it will remain a smallish quilt.  I don’t have enough background to float the quilt as I would like (only the equivalent of 3/4″ so I don’t think it is worth it, but I may try….  That decision will be for next week.

The last three blocks for the #FreeFallQAL

For this week’s blocks there were actually 3 different layouts for the blocks.  Two blocks were hard (not paying attention), the next two easy, and the third set I cursed myself by saying to a co-worker, I am nearly done!  Only two seams had to be ripped out but interesting how easy it was for me to mis-sew or misplace a piece.

And here they are on the table ready to be sewn together!

The proposed layout for the blocks

      Thanks, Wendy. It is a fun quilt with a lot of pizzaz. Think it will be lovely for a fall baby or wall hanging.

    Great finish Kathleen! Wasn't it a great feeling once all of the blocks were made? These blocks were challenging for me but I enjoyed the process.
