There's been a lot going on around here.

I just haven't been doing much blogging!  I put together 5 more Jacobs Ladder Blocks.  I've been intentionally breaking up the assembly of these blocks.  I think I learned my lesson from the Lawn Diamond Quilt and didn't want this to be another Most Boring Quilt in the World!  I still have some to work on.

Two years ago I joined Pat Sloan's 2015 QAL.  2015 was a bad year for me and having a QAL or two to look forward to was wonderful.  This year the QAL is called Pat Sloan’s 182 day Solstice Challenge.  It started last week.  This week I did a fabric pull and started playing catch-up.

The first block was a Churn Dash Block and I decided to make two.  One I turned around to be a Greek Cross.  I'm going to miss some weeks due to traveling, so I decided to make two of each block, in case I decide not to play catch-up, again.

This weeks' block is a split star block called Day Into Night.  I pulled some supplemental fabric and made these two blocks.  I'm biased, but I love them!

Here are all four blocks.  While I'm waiting for next weeks' release on Wednesday, I'll work on something else.  Probably more Jacobs Ladder blocks and I have an idea for a new quilt, too.
May your bobbins always be full,


  1. I love the split-star block. Wishing you a productive and Happy New Year 2017 :)
