When I saw Vreni's post announcing How Far Will You Go? QAL happening over at Jessica of Scrappy n' Happy and Jessica of The Elven Garden, I remembered that I'd been toying with the idea of making a sampler with my Denyse Schmidt's fabrics that I've had in my stash for quite awhile.
The quilt-along started 2 Fridays ago - it has 18 different blocks in total, with 1 block design tutorial published each week from either one of the hosts. I love the idea of making this gorgeous sampler style quilt and decided to join in. It would be a good way to practice my cutting and piecing skills and hopefully I'll get to learn some new techniques along the way!

This is the pile of fabrics I'll be using for the blocks and for the background fabric, I've chosen Kona Cotton - Ash. I think the gray compliments this line beautifully.
Here is my progress so far...
Week 1 - Susannah Blocks
Week 2 - Weathervane Block
And to sweeten things up, there'll be prizes for lucky winners at the end of the quilt along. So what do you think? Would you like to join? You can find more information here or here and join the Flickr group here.
