RTQA: Block 1 - Virginia

My friend over at Sewing by Moonlight convinced me to start this blog, and also to do a quilt-along with her.  I've never done one of these before, but had some fabric I was itching to use, so anyway, I'm in.

You can read about the plan here.

The first block is Virginia.  I couldn't decide on fabrics to use, and after messing up a couple times, I decided to make another one with different fabrics to try to improve.


It may not be obvious after only one state block done, but my color scheme is blue and white, with a little bit of orange/pink (probably won't be as much in most of the blocks as this one... but we'll see.)

Well, so much for my wordless blog, right Em?


  1. Your blocks look great. I love the colors!

  2. I like the variation with the other fabric in the centre square.

  3. They do look great. This is going to be an awesome sampler!
