Block Chain Quilt Along

When the Block Chain quilt along was announced by Christa Watson, I was hesitant about joining. I had just gotten home from QuiltCon and I had so many projects I wanted to work on, not to mention the mountain of quilt tops that need to be quilted. Do I really want to add another one to the list?

As it turns out, the answer is yes. A month ago I would never have imagined that we're in the situation we're in today. Schools are closed, events are cancelled, and life is uncertain from one day to the next. If sewing and quilting keeps us sane, then I'm so grateful for it.

The fabric I chose is a charm pack from Ruby Star Society, Crescent by Sarah Watts. It's a lovely line that contains unicorns and critters, but doesn't feel juvenile at all. Although the quilt along only started this week, I already plunged ahead working on mine. The piecing is very easy, and Christa's instructions as always are crystal clear.

The way this quilt is constructed is wonderful because I don't end up having any borders or sashings to add. (I hate those.) I'm in love with the way this top came out!

As usual with quilt tops I really, really love, I can't quilt on it quite yet. It needs to marinate for awhile so that I become less attached!


  1. I like the design with the fabrics you've chosen. It creates a graphic, yet soft look. Will be fun to see how you quilt it.

  2. I love the fabrics you are using! I thought about doing this one but didn’t feel like I had the right fabrics. So nice to have met you at QuiltCon!
