Patchwork QAL - April

Fat Quarter Shop sponsors a QAL every year benefiting a charity organization.  For 2017, it is the Make a Wish Foundation.

I love participating in this one and am using scraps from Bonnie and Camille.

Using scraps means you get to revisit old quilt memories.  This red fabric in this very first block was part of the Votes for Women quilt I made (designed by Barbara Brackman).  My quilt was called New Jersey and gifted to my mom.  (See that quilt here).

This block is called Star and Cross.  You can find the pattern and information on the QAL here. 

Here are all six of my blocks

Little blocks are loads of fun to make.  4 months in means I've got 24 blocks so far - here are the other 18.

Happy Stitching!

Have you been playing along?

Time to link up your improv quilt tops as part of the play improv QAL at Elm Street Quilts!

It's been such a blast to put out weekly prompts and see what everyone has created.  You can visit the link-up at Elm Street Quilts.

And if you haven't been playing along, you still can!  Just make an improv mini and share.

Happy Stitching!
