Alpine Quilt Group 2010 Quilt Progress

18 comments
I got quite a bit of sewing done in the past few days.  I've been really wanting to catch-up on works-in-progress and make some headway and I did just that.
 If you remember a bit back I showed you my progress on my Alpine Group 2010 quilt designed by Jina Barney of Riley Blake Fabric.
 And last week I showed you the butterflies I was making.  Well I decided to depart from Jina's layout/design in a few ways.  I hope she doesn't mind.  I switched out her flower blocks for Dresden plates and I added these butterflies instead of flags.  I wanted to make Dresdens and butterflies anyway so it was fun to incorporate them into this Alpine Group quilt.
 Friday I was able to make this school house block from Jina's September block design.  But again, I changed it into a house block just by putting kitchen items in the windows.
 Jina designed a pumpkin for October and there are 3 of them.
 I really had fun appliqueing the leaf while watching a movie on Saturday.
 I can't add them to the quilt yet.  The school house and pumpkin blocks will be added later under Jina's direction but I'm ready now for November's block.  Oh my we are getting close to the end of the year aren't we.
 I was able to put all my other blocks into the quilt top.  Saturday I was able to add the stars, economy block and butterflies sides along with the Dresdens to the top and bottom of the flimsy.
I have really enjoyed this 2010 block of the month quilt.  It has really been so much fun.  Thanks Jina for all your work on this quilt.

This is going to be such a cheerful quilt. I really like Gina's design and thought about doing it but my "to do" list is too long. It's fun to see your flimsy come together and I look forward to seeing it all quilted. Fun, fun!

i love your quilt with the dresden plates and butterflies! it looks so vintage! i'm still on the flowers. somehow my completed blocks weren't matching jina's block sizes so i had to make some adjustments -- that really slowed me down, and i lost interest. but looking at yours makes me want to pick it up again! thanks!

Hi Nanette...
I love how it's turning out and I know Jina will love it too.
I don't think she will mind the few changes you have made to make it your own...she designed a fabulous quilt didn't she?

Love it all,especially the butterfly blocks. I think designers love it when you make the quilt your own and I bet they love seeing all different versions.
