More blocks for the 70273 Project. If you are curious to see some of the beautiful quilts made with all these blocks check out this Pinterest board!


I announced that I will be running a new QAL for 2018 on my other website.

This time, instead of making the blocks and keep them all hidden in a drawer until the pattern release date, I decided I will share the blocks as soon as I make them. 

This is for few reasons:
  1. This will get me more motivated to actually make all the blocks way in advance and be less stressed as the QAL proceeds;
  2. I will put together the patterns ahead of the free date of release, and I will put them in my shop so if someone wants to work ahead of the schedule, or wants to get bundles of multiple patterns, that can be done;
  3. Showing the actual blocks made in fabric may encourage more people to join... we know that computer colored blocks look cool, but never as cool as the real fabric blocks!! :)
In my QAL, I have actually 2 blocks a month: one known and one mystery, both using the same technique. Of course I won't show the mystery ones... but these will be included in the patterns for sale, if someone is interested! You will just have to trust me that it will be a second cool pattern :)... or alternatively you can just wait for the reveal month in 2018 and see it.

So these are few more blocks I made this past week

June 2018 (Curved piecing)

September 2018 (Foundation Paper Piecing)

November 2018 (New York Beauty style piecing)

I am having so much fun with all these techniques! 
The blocks are not that difficult, I completed them all in less than a week!

I want to make more of these blocks in November, so I am setting my One Monthly Goal (elmstreetquilts) as making the last 6 non-mystery blocks by the end of the month! 
I only need to make the last three, I am on a good track to meet this goal this month!!

Are you planning to join?

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!
