Quilt Along with Amy

Better late than never!  I found Amy's Creative Side and decided to join Quilt Along group.  It is the first time I have ever interacted with anyone in Blogland, and even though I am 3 weeks behind at the start, it looks like fun and her instructions/tutorials look easy, even for me!

So, being the glutton for punishment that I am, and not having anything else to do (see further down in post), I challenged myself to try two at the same time.  I couldn't decide on the two different types of fabrics that I liked and had available, so decided to give both a whirl.  They are going to be Quilt A and Quilt B, for further reference...
Quilt A

Quilt B
Now, understand that we are supposed to make 2 blocks per week.  The above is only the first block, so hopefully, I will be adding another post shortly.  I will try to catch up...eventually.

Now, why I am joining this quilt-along....   I have so many other ideas and want-to-do items that I first felt that I did not have to do this.  I have pillowcases to make, quilts to finish, self taught lessons on quilt-as-you-go to learn, patterns to organize,,,etc., etc., etc.

But you know what?  Everything I mentioned above is slotted for someone.  I have nothing going on just for the fun of quilting......so there you go.  This may not be just for me, I don't know what I am going to do with the results, but it just sounded like fun.  So I am in for the long haul..twice!!

Those of you who are interested, check on my Pages listed...I plan to start one on this project.
