They have turned out brilliantly Sue. Well done, ❤️ Chris
Sadly we do not have Aldi here. I can't wait to see the finished quilt. I love your quilting design it shows well on that dark fabric.
Hi, I bought some of these to! It's so nice to see some inspiration for something I have in my stash!!
They also had Christmas designs!
Welcome to Cute from another UK Cutie. Sadly I don't have a Aldi near me. Sue has shedloads of inspiration and a FB group - Engineered in Stitches where some of her designs are available for a donation to her local Hospice. Look forwards to seeing you here
Welcome to Cute - nice to see someone else from UK!
I didn't buy the Christmas ones this time, but I used the ones they had last year.
Always so good to see what you are doing. You are just so talented.
Do you mean the Aldi stores that sell food and veggies? I hope so I have one down the street from me. Do you have a website? If so will these blocks be for sale. Love the way yours is turning out.
Here in UK Aldi have fabric bundles twice a year - but only if you are quick off the mark!
The designs will be available from Engineered in Stitches when they are ready.
Looks great Sue hugs:):)
Terrific job! Doing it all in the hoop sure makes fast work of making a quilt!
Very beautiful! Love your talent. Hugs, Barba
Wow so clever love it especially the colours you chose.
That would be a real learning curve to do in the hoop joining of blocks.
Do you mean you bought the FQ's from Aldi the Supermarket?
Here in Australia they sell sewing machines and overlockers as a special occasionally but have never seen fabric. That would be great if they did.
Just twice a year - but a great bargain!
Nice blocks love the quilting something different
I tried to get a 60's feel - I am rather pleased with it!
Looking good, love the rows you have completed and the idea you did them all ITH. Great idea on the quilting, the squares/rectangles. So mush better than the standard stippling.
Looks great. Could I please see the back so I can see how they are joined. Thanks for sharing. Happy Stitching Brenda Lea
Lovely..love a great buy on fabric...were the two rows joined ITH as well?
Yes - everything so far is ITH. I think I can manage one more row, then the limits of my workspace kick in. I'll do another half a quilt and then join the two on the sewing machine.
It is a beautiful result and I love the fabrics you used. But, I don't understand how the blocks can be joined in the hoop if they are at the same time pieced,backed and quilted .
I'd appreciate some hint about how to do this too!
The backing has to be finished by hand.
Thank you for informing me. I understand better this way
Love your fabrics and it looks as if you have been busy. I'm looking forwards to seeing the end result as what you have so far is beautiful. I'm only sorry I live so far from an Aldi
