Woo Hoo, another QAL

Ok if your loving stars, here is another QAL using Fat Quarters.




Konda over at Moose on the Porch is having another QAL. It is a slow paced one. One block every two weeks. Doing stars, and using fat quarters this time. Ok so I went to find me 16 fat quarters.....it is kinda hard to do, when you don't quite know what your actually making, besides stars. But I did find some old fabrics, in green ( I am not too fond of green, period) Figure I would use them up, there was a paisley in there with a little bit of pink, so I found some old school pinks too, then I found this panel, in the same funky old school green and pink, with lots of funky purple, so off to the purple stash too. This is what I came up with. I might have to get some off white tone on tone for the background, or I might have enough, forgot to look. Looks old school huh?!! But hey, I am only shopping from my stash as much as possible. So, they coordinate it is what I am using. Definitely NOT my usual palette that is for sure. Here is what they look like.....




The one on the bottom is the pre-printed panel I found, and there is actually 2 of them, with enough coordinating fabric to back them with. They are only about 44 inches square. Must have liked it at one time if I bought it twice!


What about you? Are you going to join too??

I would love to join in but seriously I don't think I have the time. I will just have to watch for now and then make it later!

I will have to check it out but I am already doing one star quilt along. Can't wait to see your blocks.

That is ok Barb, sometimes I post about the QAL's with full intentions on doing them, and then never do them. Other times I just do it as an FYI for everyone, and so in case I decide at a later time I want to, I have the button at the bottom of the page to take me there too.
