I'm going to join the "Choose Your Own BlockAlong".
One of the projects I've started is Trail Mix by Maybeth Oxenreider. It consists of 5 different blocks. Block A is a simple four patch made of 3.5 inch squares. I'm hoping to use up a lot of the chunks of fall fabrics I've accumulated. I finished up the required 32 four patches and I'm on to the next block which I think is a double four patch.
I'm also going to be making some red and white blocks of my choice. I have 12 - 12 inch blocks from a swap and I'm going to make more 3, 6 and 9 inch blocks to add to the 12 until I have enough for a bed sized quilt.
I also have 12 swap blocks from a 30s reproduction birthday club swap. I requested any 12 inch star block in any color of 30s fabrics on a blue background. Needless to say I'm going to be making many more 12 inch star blocks until I have enough for a large quilt.
So, I've chosen Trail Mix blocks, a variety of red and white blocks and 30s reproduction star blocks for my BlockAlong. I usually have so many projects going and so many UFOs that this BlockAlong may keep me focused on finishes if I have a goal to link up each week with some progress.
