8 down 12 to go...

Nearly halfway there with my 'quilt as you go' blocks. I need to do 2 more like these ones with the pale centres then the other 10 blocks will be opposite with dark centres. I'm really liking these blocks now that I have made a few more. They do take a bit longer, actually quite a bit longer than a normal block but I won't have a huge quilt to quilt at the end. I'm just hoping I have enough scraps left to complete it otherwise I will just have to cut into fabrics in my stash which is probably a good thing because then I'll have room for some 'new' fabrics. You can check out all the other 'quilt as you go quilts' over here.

They look lovely Catherine, I wish I had had time to start this with you all! It must be great to do the quilting in little bits. Certainly on my list to try!

I really like this. They look great. You can do a lot more quilting can't you when it's smaller bits.

These are gorgeous, Catherine! I love your color pallet!

I have a stupid question though- you're sewing the fabric right to the batting, right? Is there a backing fabric behind the batting? I read the instructions and it didn't look like it. So, if there's not a backing fabric now, how you get one on there later and still have all the layers quilted together?

Thanks, if you have the time to answer this for me! I love your blocks, though- but you knew I would!

Oops! Disregard the question, I went to Penny's blog and found the answer.

OK, now I can't wait to see your finished quilt! I think it's going to be outstanding!
