Design Wall Monday - Quilt Square Quilt Along


I finished two more blocks for the Quilt Square Quilt Along this month. 


This was the first one and it was very fun to sew - it's basically just 4 framed 9 patch blocks.









And then I worked on the Anvils, which was 9 anvil blocks having 23 pieces each, for a total of 207 pieces that I cut and sewed for a 12" block. 
Could that be right?!? 
Yep...it's not a typo!
I didn't love the argyle block in the middle on the right
...it looks a bit disorganized, but I was too tired of these blocks to make another one to replace it.
Here are my blocks on my design wall in the order they were made: January, February and March across the top, and the two April blocks on the bottom.
To see more design walls, hop over to Patchwork Times. Last week there were over 100 design wall blog postings!
And stop by Jo's Country Junction to catch the Quilt Square Quilt Along parade!

I'm enjoying this Quilt-along through you, your blocks look great. I thought it was a Typo when you cut them out.

Great job on your QSQA blocks! I was able to complete the anvil block using Bonnie's technique of bonus triangles. Really cool! :)

Love the colors you are using. You are very dedicated. One block with that many peices must have been a labor of love. It looks great.

The anvil block is one of my favorite old blocks - yours look great! The color selection is nice and soft also.
