Bloggers' Block-a-palooza Quilt Along

Some very talented bloggers out there have gotten together to put on a "Bloggers' Block-a-palooza Quilt Along"!  They are posting a block every Monday and every Thursday starting this week.  I think this is a great idea and decided to follw along.  John, of Quilt Dad, designed the first block, and you can find instructions on his blog.  They are really clear and also available in .pdf form for printing.  If anyone out there has sewn some beginner quilts and want to expand their techniques, quilt-alongs can be a great way to find the expertise and support one needs to take the next step.

I knew I wanted to use Swiss Chocolate for my blocks, but couldn't decide upon a color story, so I did one in chocolate and one in mocha.  I still can't decide which I like best, so I might have to do every block in both!

I can't wait to see what other people sew and post to the flickr group!

Wow, I like both blocks. I think the block stands out better with your fabric line.
