APQ Tone it down QAL - Blocks seven and eight

Whew!  I've done blocks seven and eight now, as well as finished the flimsy for my sister's husband.

Here are blocks seven and eight - I'm not sure which is which, as I am piecing two at a time, to save a bit of time.  I'm linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday.  Check out everyone's WIPs!

This one's a bit the same as some others

The circle is much more prominent that the cross on this one - never mind.
All eight blocks so far
Pictures of the flimsy will be in my next post.  I'm trying to find some 505 basting spray in Brisbane, but it seems rather difficult to do.  I might have to pin baste once again, as the stuff they sell at Spotlight simply doesn't work.


  1. You're making great progress! I'm working on block #4. I love how your blocks are coming out. Beautiful!!

  2. Oh I love that your blocks are different! This is definitely a QAL that I want to do but I was scared I wouldn't be able to be consistent with colors throughout and yours proves that it looks great with a multitude of colors. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. The blocks look fabulous. For christmas I ordered several large size cans of 505 because every one of my LQS was out and left me having to beg and borrow from friends. Hope you find some.

  4. These look so good. I am working on my APQ Quiltalong blocks now as well. Seeing all the finished ones popping up over on instagram is very inspiring to keep going.

  5. These blocks look gorgeous together! I haven't jumped in on this one but I've seen lots and lots of them popping up - <3 <3

  6. Your blocks look lovely! I love how all of them are different! Can't wait to see it done!

    Would love for you to stop by and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
