First up is the Ombre Gems Quilt Along primarily being held via Instagram (#ombregemsquiltalong) but also found on Emily's blog Quilty Love
This is a relatively relaxed quilt along with weekly goals. The idea being to use the Ombre Confetti fabric. I did seriously consider this until I saw the new Moda Watercolour range, Two Jelly Rolls later and I'm away.
Week one was to cut the fabrics and make a practice block ( more on that in another post).
There's 800 2.5" white squares in that basket. At least I hope there is.
Week two was to make up the Pink blocks
Week three to make up the reds/oranges and yellows
And this week, week four was to make up the green tone blocks.
As you can see there's nothing too strenuous about this QAL. There will be a total of 40 blocks at the end and they will all be trimmed square. I know some are trimming as they go but I'm leaving mine until the end as I don't want to risk any stretching of the bias edges while they are being stored.
