Modern QAL Block 10 Parisian Star


modern qal

How are we up to block 10 of Modern QAL already? I just can’t believe that these quilts will almost be finished in 2 months! I really should narrow down my finishing options.

Anyway, back to this month’s block. This month it is Parisian Star by Leanne Cohen and the tutorial is being hosted by the lovely Crafty Mummy.

Below is my block in the Kona solids version. Remember  I am doing 2 blocks each month (well that’s the plan… I’m a little behind!), one in solids and one in prints from the Little Apples line by Aneela Hoey.

The block is simple enough to put together. I finished my solids version in under an hour from start to finish with a few interruptions from thirsty offspring.

I am hoping to start my print version tomorrow but I do like how this one turned out. I wanted my points to be a bit eclectic as well, this quilt is going to turn out all colourful and eclectic in the end, well that’s the plan anyway!

This month’s linky prize is a jelly roll of the gorgeous April Showers from Bonnie and Camille donated by the Fat Quarter Shop!


Yay. Love April Showers, please note that April Showers has a ship date of March so your prize may be a little delayed it getting to you, but it’ll be worth it!


Anyway jump on over to The Crafty Mummy to see how she put this months block together and then pop back here to link up!
