I’m Calling it Rascal

April 12, 2013

For several months I’ve been making blocks along with a couple of QALs (Quilt Alongs) or BOMs (Block of the Months).  Let me show you two very fun ones – Anita at Bloomin Workshop is doing a Random Sampler Quilt Along.  This is the one that has become the Rascal quilt along in my head.

Here are my blocks for the rascal so far:

Also fun is the QAL that is being hosted by Charise at Charise Creates who is finding fun vintage blocks for us to make.  Just look at her beauties!

Charise's Vintage Block Quilt AlongThese are tricky!  If you’re a seasoned quilter you may find them a lot of fun.  Newbie or professional, you’ll love to see them since they are so unique.

Here are the blocks I’ve made for this quilt so far:

Both of these groups challenge me to learn more about piecing different blocks, plus it is so much fun to see the different blocks created by others in the Flickr groups Random Sampler Flickr and Vintage Blocks Flickr.

Yes, one of the vintage blocks was so tough I started refering to it as the ‘blockstard’.  Would you be able to tell which one?  It doesn’t look that hard – but it is the third one showing above (looks like Maltese crosses a bit).

Why not join us?  All the wonderful information and tutorials are online now!

Happy Quilting,

    Hi, Letty. Nice that you have shared these two very enjoyable and at times challenging QALs. Both groups have such creative members, and it’s so inspiring to see such diverse interpretations of the same block and watch everyone’s progress as their quilts begin to take shape. Anita and Charise, the hostesses of these QALs, keep it interesting and fun with each new block they share.

    Letty I didn’t realize you blog 🙂 I just found you through Anita’s blog! Each of the blocks you have done for these two QALs is so beautiful! I agree with you, this is a good way to learn new techniques and block styles.
