Progress Check!

During the Coronavirus outbreak, it has been a pleasure to hang out with the Spring Ahead Quilt Along group! Every day, I look forward to seeing everyone's fabric choices, blocks and progress! Such a no-pressure welcoming group!


It’s not too late to join us! Our group is open until May 28, 2020. All printable instructions/guides and videos are located in the group. After the group closes, the pattern will be made available for purchase.


This week, we are continuing to stitch blocks (in between lots of mask making by our generous group members)! Friday April 10th, I will be live in the group to chat and have a quick Q and A. I will be talking about what is coming up next.

So I thought it might be fun to show you what some of our group members have up their sleeves! Some are scrappy and some are planned. I love seeing what everyone has decided to do - they are ALL artful!! (I put these in no particular order!) Get ready for the eye candy!


Here we have Sharon's batik beauty:

How about Carol's interpretation in Gray and Red?

Here is Linda's scrappy sensation:

Loving Colleen's use of red and pink in this block:

Check out Julie's blocks - love the gradations and the surprise in the center:

Patty's blocks seem to dance - this is just vibrant and fun:

Denise's blocks are a delight - another group member sees crystals in her colors:

I can't wait to see what everyone has done!


Here is where I am right now - I am just loving this - so much fun!
