QALs and BOMs

So yesterday I mentioned that I'm working on the Tula Pink "City Sampler" Sew Along hosted by Sara at Sew Sweetness, and the Hop Skip & Jump Block of the Month over at Sew Lux Fabric.  How fun it is to do quilt projects on a schedule!

I really look forward to getting a new block pattern and fabric every month for the HS&J BOM from Sew Lux (and I love the way they package their goodies!).  Last month's Block 3 forced me to learn a new skill ~ my first paper-piecing ever.  Happy with the way it turned out!  and I just got Block 4 in the mail today ~ more paper piecing ~ but I'm feeling confident.  :)

For Sara's City Sampler Quilt Along (or Sew Along, whatever), I'm afraid I've fallen a couple of weeks behind (could have been the order for 35 Zipster Pouches that I had to mail out before school started! combined with the test pattern that I need to finish this week!).  Anywho ~ I had a bunch of fabrics that were grey, white and light blue, so I thought I'd use these for the 100 block sampler.    Here are some of my favorites for far:

Both the QAL and the BOM are great practice for me, so thanks to Sara and Chrissy and Linda for putting those out there so we can play along!
