#BFPTqal From The Book "Blocks From The Past"

These are blocks for the #BFPTqal challenge. 
The above are:
1. Duck and Duckling
2. Carrie Nation
3. Jacobs Ladder 
4. Cake Stand

5. Windblown Square

6. This And That

7. Friendship Album

The book we are using is on the right side at the top.
I have done two more but will show them next time. I did the Churn Dash Wrong. I will still use it in my son's quilt but I will make another Churn Dash the right way and show you the difference. 

I do love this challenge it has been fun and challenging for me. It makes me think of all of the quilts from the past in America that used these blocks. The pieces are little and use very little fabric. So I have used scrapes except for the black borders.

Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past QAL or #BFPTqal or #NMQGsampler Challenge

"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. 
"Scrappy Mess Quilt"
