Block-A-Palooza Back-Up No More :)

So I got a little behind in Block-A-Palooza.  As in 5 blocks behind :)  On Monday morning, I sat down and cut out the 4 blocks that I was behind at that point.  I found I actually really preferred cutting out several blocks at once.  It seemed to save time.  (especially where I don't have a designated cutting area and so it all comes up to my dining room table :)  So with that said, don't be surprised if you don't see any more of these blocks for another 2 weeks :)

So, here they are, in no particular order, the 5 block-a-palooza blocks completed.  And now, I can say I am half way done and all caught up!!  Yippee Skippee!!

I love how this block turned out!!!  I just love the color combination and it was fun to get to do something a little different.

Can I just say, flying geese aren't really my favorite.  So ya, I had to major push through this block.  That is a lot of little tiny flying geese :)

This block was a lot of fun.  A little more labor intensive than most of the blocks so far but a lot of fun.  I had a fun time mixing all of the bright colors.

I love pink and yellow together.  It reminds me of pink lemonade.  This block was simple and sweet.  And only having to do 4 flying geese was sweet :)

I loved tying in some solids in this block.  Also, having a large square allowed me to use one of my more fun and bold prints.  Super fun!!

And here they are so far.  The 8 blocks for Block-A-Palooza.  I just love how they are coming together.  Super bright and just screaming of Spring!!  And right now, I am so ready for Spring!!
Pin It!


  1. All your blocks look sooo fantastic! I've bookmarked the block-a-palooza and will EVENTUALLY do it, not right now though way too busy.

    I think the big star block is my favorite out of all of them so far. It is just GORGEOUS and I love that it still looks fantastic in your colorway! I was considering doing an entire quilt out of that block.

    Great piecing!

  2. They are looking great! I like your color scheme! :)

  3. your blocks are gorgeous - can't wait to see the completed quilt. happy stitching!

  4. Wow, they look great! I am so far behind. I onlu have the first two done! LOL! I hope to get caught up next week. Keep up the great work!

  5. Beautiful colors! I'm not fond of flying geese either, but you did a great job.

  6. I love the top one. I have not been following this as flying geese are not my thing but the top one is wonderful!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
