Freefall Link Up #2

Hope Spring is springing up everywhere in your corner of the northern hemisphere! Daffodils are blooming all over: they are in the lawns, under trees, along ditches, really quite glorious, not just in flowerbeds as they do in Alberta. My mum used to describe this custom in England, which we thought was rather odd, since no one does this in Alberta, but then I saw them exactly as she'd described, all over France.  Golden showers of Forsythia I spot as well, must get one if there isn't one here at the new place... Nope haven't even had time to inspect the wares of the garden of the family who lived here all but 5 of its 70 years.

So I hope you have had time to sew up the first 8 leaf blocks.  I have been remiss in my Instagram surfing, so I apologize if I haven't commented and liked your photo if you've posted there.  As long as you tag me, mmmquilts, I should find you, and remember to hashtag freefallqal I will find you.

There are some gorgeous fabric pulls out there!  I've got almost all my fabric home now, but no, it is not out of all the totes; I haven't even unpacked the Florida sewing stuff yet, sniff.  Hopefully soon I can start my second Freefall quilt.  I will be linking this post and attached linky up with
Cooking Up Quilts
Patchwork Times

So you work will be given more exposure !

Step 3 will be out on Monday, April 17, and this link up will remain open through Sunday evening.

Yes, it took a while but everything is starting to bloom. Our forsythia is stunning, the magnolia is almost in full bloom and the hyacinths cause people to stop and ask what is giving off such a wonderful scent. It won't be too much longer until all the different lilacs are in bloom as well. What a wonderful time of year.

I managed 5 blocks this weekend. I plan to get the other 3 done this coming Friday and will link up then.

The daffs and linky that is lol! And yes, our mum's fave flower is still the daffodil as we heard continuously growing up lol!

I LOVE daffodils! And the cherry blossoms of spring too. Although, the storm we had on Friday took care of most of those. :(

I'm on Retreat and today's project will be my Freefall. I did put one block together last night out of curiosity and it's looking great!

No daffs blooming here yet, but the hyacinth is going to be open in a day or two.

Flowers are starting to pop up everywhere around here. I love the transition of the seasons, even the smells change. Just over night the scents in the air have completely shifted, it just makes me smile. Hoping to link up later this evening and colorful leaves are falling all around me :)

I am hoping to have time this afternoon to start on my blocks. Fingers crossed! :)

Kate said...

The spring flowers are becoming quite showy around here too. Enjoy your stitching time this weekend.

Your Freefall pattern is the work of a genius! I'm finally home and all settled in. My sewing stations are set up, and I'm ready to do a fabric pull and try to catch up. Wish me luck! XO

I realize this is post #2, is there any way I can get post #1, as I was just told about this blog & QAL?

Sandra Walker said...

Hi Janet, I do hope you will come back because you are a no-reply blogger, so I can't email you directly. The instructions are all under the Freefall QAL tab up top. Click it, and you will find the list of posts with links to each post. Each of the steps has a PDF copy which you can download for free from my Craftsy store. Just click the "My Pattern Store - I'm a Craftsy Designer" button on my sidebar. You can fix the no-reply if you look at the bottom of this page below the "Add comment". You will see a link that gives you instructions on how to fix it. Very happy you want to join this, and let me know if you have any other questions. You can email me directly if you click View My Complete Profile at the top of the sidebar. :-)
