January Alternative First Saturday Blocks

Some friends meet for coffee on the first Saturday of the month. We used to go to a LQS's BOM meeting and go for coffee afterward. We all decided not to participate in the BOM this time, but still get together on our own. We challenged ourselves to each declare a project that we have to show progress on each month. My project is "the red project."

Two more blocks are finished, one of each checkerboard and Dresden plate:

The Dresdens will get centers later and snowballed corners. I'm almost halfway to a 25 block layout; one pair of blocks a month is moving this project along nicely.

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict


  1. oooo. Always love a reds quilt. These Dresdens are really nice, and I like the mix-in of a kiss of other color in the checkerboards.

  2. One pair a month is making great progress. It's nice to see them all grouped together!

  3. I really love your red project. This is a great combination of two blocks.

  4. What a great idea to put the checkerboard blocks with a traditional block. It really looks nice.

  5. Love your Dresden blocks. Nice job.
