Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past QAL or #BFPTqal or #NMQGsamplerCHALLENGE

"Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past"

I'm excited to be able to get started on this fun sampler Quilt Along. 
I'm a little behind but I will post my progress. 

You can join me in this so please do. 
This is how.

First off, get a copy of the book, 
"Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past" 
by Marie Henry.  

It is available from many online stores and 
a picture and link are at the
right of this post. 

Now follow the schedule below.

Here is the fabric I am thinking of using because 
I want this quilt to be for my son Tim. 
So it has to be guyish. 

I'm all about stash busting right now and am using 
only fabrics from my stash.
Do you think this looks guyish?

I am still quilting the "Scrappy Mess" I am making for my son Todd 
and because I quilt on a Bernina 550 
I quilt small in each block. 
Uggggh.
"Scrappy Mess Quilt"
