Quilt-Along with Amanda Jean

April 27, 2009 at 10:46 pm 10 comments

This sounded way too fun to pass up.  Quilting Goddess and Crazy Mom, Amanda Jean is hosting a quilt-along. For all of us who sign up, we’ll be making a quilt based on the classic 9-patch block.  Amanda Jean was inspired to make this quilt for herself, based on this one…

Who wouldn’t want to quilt something that simple and beautiful?  I knew immediately that I wanted to join in.  I went to my stash and started pulling out blues and greens for a more tonal quilt.  Here’s what I have all ready to go (the quilt-along part of this is making one block a day.  I’m already behind!!)


I’m eager to see how these colors interact and play together.  I’m excited to be using some of my Flea Market Fancy stash in the blues and greens that I’ve been hoarding for a project worthy of it.  Check back for progress and updates – or check out the Flickr group for this project.

    I’m thinking of joining this one … as if I need more on my plate right now! LOL. But this is the first quilt that is very classic/traditional looking that I’ve just loved. And one block a day (or I can see myself doing 7 one day of the week) doesn’t seem too bad! :)

    Jennifer, most of these are Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt.

    Nice to meet you too Stefanie!

    Erin – a block a day is so do-able.

    Rachel – of COURSE you’re doing this quilt-a-long!!! You’re so productive, I’m really jealous!

    Hiya, found you through the Flickr pool for the quiltalong. I’m doing it too, my very first! How fun. And I love your fabrics. Mine is a lot less planned, I’m just pulling out random bits from the stash. We’ll see how it goes…
