Quilt-Along Blocks Received

Earlier this month, I asked my Aiming for Accuracy II quilt-along participants if they would send me a 5″ finished block to use in the backing of my quilt. This block is from Lesson 2, Block 2.

Last year, I had asked my quilt-along participants to send me blocks too. Below is my backing for my Delightful Stars quilt. I am so pleased with how this turned out, that I am thrilled to ask this year’s participants to contribute too.

The back of my quilt includes friendship stars and paper pieced letters sent from quilters around the world.

Below are the gorgeous 29 blocks I’ve received so far. Though I did receive another seven on Tuesday, but between the wind and Milo acting up, I wasn’t able to get a photo taken.

I am so thrilled with all of the blocks I’ve received and for the lovely messages and notes of encouragement. I save them all, and look at them whenever I’m feeling “blue”. We’ve reached the point in this quilt-along (almost half way), where I’m seeing amazing results and improvements from the quilters.

Of course, if you want to join us on this FUN adventure, you can do so at any time. Purchase the quilt-along here. If you do so, I strongly recommend that you progress through this project by starting at Lesson 1, as each lesson builds upon skills learned previously. You can also view the A4AII Lesson Summaries and Participant Blocks.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the blocks I’ve received so far. I’ll be sure to share more blocks with you in the future and also my final block layout for the backing of my quilt.

Happy quilting,
Michele

    I have been so sad. I am missing the quilting lessons because I work, live and eat at my campground. I have no time during the summer months to love my sewing. Anyways, we are full with 4th of July campers and it’s a rainy day. I just came over to my office and printed out lessons 4-8. Now I feel a little better because I can take the notebook back to my cabin and do some reading. I live in Florida from the end of November and this is when I get to enjoy my sewing. This was a good therapy session. Thank you. ~ Saxton, Pennsylvania
