This post is a part of the Para Para Quilt Along.  Below is a list of all the posts and articles on this series.

Firstly, ignore that my mug above says “merry christmas”.  Lol.  It’s a favorite because of size and shape.

I hope you have been happy and well this past week.  We are off to make out Girl in the Corner blocks this round.  So simple.  It’s a perfect week to use for catching up and getting on track.



This Week’s Task

We’re working on section #6 this round, the Girl in the Corner blocks.  There’s only four of them and they end up as the four corners of your quilt top.


  • Girl in the Corner blocks would be a good time for fussy cutting if you are inclined.
  • This is another perfect moment for chain piecing.




Fabrics I’m using

I’m using Art Gallery Fabrics Spirited fabrics and Pure solid Macademia for my background.
