I have sew together all my strips for the Postage Stamp Quilt Along. I love the fabrics I am using and can't wait to see it all come together. I am using Prayer Flag by Moda with off-white for the background. Here is my progress so far.

Well, I procrastinated, but I got it done. I finished Block 5 of the Layer Cake Quilt-Along last night. I thought it was a fun block to make, but I just don't have the differentiation in my fabrics that others do. I guess it is because the graphics are so large. I love the fabric and the patterns, but I have learned that choosing fabric makes a huge difference, depending on the pattern you will be using. With a quilt-along you don't have the luxury of knowing how large or small the cut pieces will be, so it is just hit-or-miss, i guess. Overall, I am pleased with how the blocks have turned out so far.
And the quilt-along has been a lot of fun!!
Happy Quilting, ;)
