Well since my OC Step 5 blocks look awful with the other blocks I am going back to the drawing board on these. I need to shop in the stash for a better color combo.

But in the meantime here are the first four weeks of the Quilt-a-Long from Crazy Mom Quilts blog. This is a fun blog and she really makes some neat quilts. The first block is the setting block. There will be 12 of these and then 13 different star blocks. Mine are all purple and yellows from my stash. So far only one mistake on the last block below. The star points were supposed to be different fabrics from each other. But I think it looks ok as is. This is a very low stress quiltalong and should be a pretty quilt when completed. The setting blocks will offer a lot of space to practice machine quilting.

Have a good holiday. I am off to watch DS play baseball all day.

I'm not convinced either about my colours now that I'm seeing them all together. Oh dear, and they looked so lovely before. Well, I'm just going to stick with it and hope that it all pulls together once we get further on.

Me too! My colors are stomach turning now that they are together. I do like your crazy mom quilt along blocks. I'm enjoying doing these. I also love your new fabric - especially those fat quarter stacks.

Lovely quilt along blocks. The colours are very just beautiful.
