I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along – Block 2

DSCN1173

Block #2 of the I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along, 2017 is from April Adams of Janda Bend Quilts. I used the Tri Recs Triangle Ruler for the first time since purchasing it over a year ago. After being intimidated by these little pieces of plastic for so long I decided to make an attempt. I am happy to say it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Only two little 3 1/2″ blocks were sacrificed before I figured it out. It may not be perfect but I did not take the tops of any of my trees.

I am looking forward to seeing the other blocks the group has completed.

Thank you for browsing.

I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along, Block 1

I know, I know, here I am doing another quilt along even though I have two going on right now. BUT this one looks so cute and it is for Christmas. Just look at the sparkly white snowflake. How could I resist?

This QAL is brought to us by  Quilt In Piece. The Snowflake block is number 1 of 12 and I completed it as raw edge applique. You all know I am not good with applique so I am pleased to say I finished this one and did not turn under any edges. I will feel guilty tomorrow but today I celebrate. 🙂

Thanks Vanda Chittenden of Quilt In Piece for designing this block for us.

I appreciate all you lovely people who look at and even read my blog.
