Quilt Along

I joined the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along a few weeks ago over at Moose on the Porch Quilts and just finished the first block.  New block instructions are posted every two weeks by a different designer and with over 400 participants signed up, this should be quite fun!
 I'm using Fig and Plum for my quilt blocks, group pictures here.

I made this quilt last year from a fat quarter bundle I had received as a gift.  It was the complete collection of Violet Patch by Debbie Beaves for RJR back in 2004.  I was never really nuts about the fabric line and was anxious to use it up so here's the second quilt from it.

I used the Blue Lagoon pattern from the Jelly Roll Quilts book that I love so much as I had loads of 2.5 inch strips leftover.  It measures about 70 inches square and I still have fabric left!
 I think they'd make some nice HeartStrings quilt blocks.  If anyone would like them, along with some other HeartStrings blocks I've already made from other fabrics, leave a comment and I'll send them to you.  Or if you just want the fabric, let me know.

Your quilt is so pretty, the sweet fabrics are just like Spring. I have some violets blooming in my garden a sure sign of Spring. Please visit my blog, have a nice day. Thank you for sharing!

I like the Blue Lagoon quilt a lot! I can't believe you still have fabric left over after two quilts. Your Fig and Plum is a nice change from the other fabrics.

I am using Fig and Plum for the quilt along as well. It seems that there are a few of us if you look at the photo pool.I used pink in my first block and will probably go for the blues and greens for the new block.It is so much fun seeing how people do different things with the same blocks.I'll keep watching to see ow yours turns out each time.
