My Second QAL for 2015

I showed off the 3rd block for the Snapshots QAL last month …
And I think I’ve mentioned I am participating in 2 this year. {Now 3! haha} I have also had to play catch-up in the second and would like to share the first couple of blocks from that today 🙂

This QAL is Vacation Time QAL with Pat Sloan. Her blocks are gorgeous, and they are also easy to follow along and piece with very clear instructions.

The colours are more muted than I would usually choose for myself. I picked up this bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop‘s Modern FQ Club {One of the clubs I mentioned a while back 🙂 }. I thought it might go nicely for this QAL and jumped in as I had no real idea what fabrics I was going to use until they arrived lol

I am again joining the fabulous Ms Midge in a Charm Swap! This time round we are swapping Heather Bailey!!

Squeeeeee!! 😀 Isn’t Midge a superstar?? I’ll be stalking the postie now …

To add to my excitement, I have also joined the Aussie Aurifil Club!!

{I have no idea where Midge gets all of her time and energy, but I am eternally grateful!}

My hope for the next few days is to continue to catch up with my QALs. Hubby is away on business and that usually makes it a bit easier 😉 We also have a long weekend here in Queensland so I plan on indulging in a sleep in on Monday since I am working the rest of the weekend. I do so love a sleep in … And when I get up, a PJ/sewing day is on the cards!

What are you doing this weekend? Hope you have time for some sewing or crafting!

  1. My favourite’s that black and orange one – I adore that combination. If I’ve finished the quilt I’m entering into Mackay Show (25th June), then I’ll be working on the three blocks I’m making for the first month of a year long block swap party which starts this month. And if I’m not doing that, I’ll be designing a quilt for a friend who wants a queensize Canterbury Bulldogs quilt for his birthday in October.

    • oooh I was intending on entering a quilt in our show {I think the weekend after yours} this year but I am too far behind to contemplate now … Next year! lol
      That black is a dark blue, awful nighttime pic! I thin it and the last one are my faves 🙂
      Enjoy the long weekend!

      • Oh, even better as dark blue! I’m entering my Worldwide Friends epic, and it’s still not ready, so I have to spend the day stitching like a fiend. Well, if I will enter a large, hand-stitched, hand quilted item, I have only myself to blame. Still, seven months from start to finish isn’t bad… You enjoy the weekend too!
