Today I'm gonna share the first eight blocks for my Night Sky quilt. If you wanna know more about the Quilt Along that is just starting this week please read this post. The goal is to finish one row per week during seven weeks then we'll have our completed top early in December. I'm making this more random version using three bundles plus some other scraps. My second version (wait to see some blocks next week) will be made with Miss Kate fabric collection. It's really crazy but, I couldn't resist making two versions with this pattern :-)
This is the first time I'm using some dark colors in a quilt. I was for years always very comfortable using black and darks on my bags. I think it's really working in this quilt so far. I plan to use more aqua in future blocks to get more balance. I also think that I'm gonna avoid more of this yellowish green. It works for inside the blocks but not really well as a background for the stars. I do appreciate your opinions too!
Don't forget, on Instagram use #nightskyqal Also share your pics on Flickr group.
Next week I'm gonna share our prizes for the Quilt Along! Our sponsors have really good stuff to giveaway. All you need to do is enter your WIP! It doesn't matter if it's just a block or more, I do count on you!! Entries will be open in a couple of weeks.

Jackie Thompson who said (about how she chooses fabrics for her quilts): "I like to use fabrics coordinated by a more masterful eye, but I am comfortable straying from the placement and exact color scheme of the pattern".
Please Jackie, contact me as soon as you can! You're a not reply comment blogger and didn't leave your email either. I do appreciate your participation and I'm hoping you get back to me! I only could sent to you a message on Google plus.
