DCMQG 2016 QAL - Block 16

Block 16

Moving right along to our QST Heart. I believe the inspiration for this came from Gypsy Wife by Jen Kingwell, but I made it quite a bit bigger.

DCMQG 2016 QAL - Block 15

Block 15

So I know I took inspiration for this block from somewhere, but I also know that I made some changes to make this my own design. Which means that I am calling this the QST Star, because I'm really creative like that (I save most of my creativity for quilt designing and hardly ever name my quilts anything interesting).

DCMQG QAL - Small Hiatus

I've had to take a small hiatus from posting blocks once a week for the QAL. This week's block will either be late, or not happen either. Between visits from my mother:

At the playground

Blowing dandelions while daddy is doing yard work

Cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin

And making three quilts in the last month (individual blog posts once I get my act together):

I've been pretty slammed, and ran right through all the blocks I'd made ahead of time.

Take some time to catch up on your blocks (or get started) and I'll be back with the next block either on Sunday or next Friday.

I'll leave you with a picture of my kiddo helping me paper piece one of the stars in the space quilt:
