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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ }. 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 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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!
