Centred QAL - Blocks A2 and A3

Aaaaand with that, another week has zipped on by, at least for me, and we are ready for four more blocks. I just have to say that I am wowed by the gorgeous combinations out there! Seeing all these colours flowing together in the centre, and out to the edges, the pops of colour in the centre four blocks, just makes my heart sing. Truly. That 'full' feeling of gratitude and awe and joy.

Remember there is a hashtag pool for the quilt along too, which is a great way to see what others are up to. It is #centredquiltalong



There were eight linkups last week! If you didn't get a chance to link up, let me know, and I think I can open up the linky, insert your URL, and close it up again. It's just so wonderful to see all the combos going on, and nice to have all of them in one spot. Not to worry if you weren't quite finished all eight blocks; the pace is nice and gentle so you have time to catch up.

Block A2
Make two more Block A, but with the following difference: in the final round, the 2 1/2" x 9 1/2" rectangle is navy, but the 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangle is white. All seams are pressed toward the centre to ensure nesting with Block B. See below. Make two.

Block A3
In the same manner as A2, make two A3 blocks, but with the following difference: in the final round, the 2 1/2" x 9 1/2" rectangle is white, and the 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangle is navy. All seams are pressed toward the centre to ensure nesting with Block B. See below. Make two.

Here are my four blocks: two of A2 and two of A3. They won't nest together because they belong with Block B in opposing corners of the quilt. If you are doing two different colours as the background quilt upon which your centre four blocks 'float', then you will be making both A2 and A3 out of the same colour if you are having them in opposing corners as I am.

Happy sewing! See you here next Friday for the final four blocks B2 and B3...bet some of you will go ahead and figure them out because you just cannot wait!

  1. I’m doing a quilt for Nova Scotia and will finish that up first. I’m loving hope my blocks are looking. Thanks for a great design.

  2. Hi Sandra! It cannot be Friday again already. On one hand, the weeks are an eternity in length yet they seem to whip by. Rather a dichotomy, no?! I'm going to head back to the linkup to see everyone's version so far. Take care, my friend. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Where did the time go??? I haven't looked at blogs since some time last week. Glad I finally remembered I needed to get the instructions. LOL
