Pieces Of The Santa Fe Trail Flimsy

My first flimsy of 2022 is from the Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail sew-along, hosted by Melva of Melva Love Scraps, who began this SAL in April. I joined in September, and you can read my first post about it right here. I enjoyed this SAL so much. Melva offered uniquely interesting block patterns with easy to follow instructions, and I loved reading the stories behind each block. She is considering another SAL for 2022, and I will certainly join in anything she starts!

I loved every single block and had fun choosing some of the vintage-y fabrics from my stash.

Melva has some very attractive layout options involving added borders, and I am mulling those, but for now this will become a UFO and a possible quilt for one of my nephews. Once I finish up I will post fabric and assembly details.

I am adding this post to the Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail linkup hosted by Melva. Thanks for hosting this fun sew-along, Melva!


  1. That looks great, Linda! I love the vintage-y look of the blocks and the mellow colors. It definitely sounds like this was a fun and interesting QAL!

  2. Yours turned out well. I saved all the parts from the QAL but I haven't made it yet. Thanks for sharing your photo.

  3. Looks good! And CONGRATULATIONS! Your name was randomly chosen as the winner of the final prize. :) I will send you an email.

  4. Your flimsy is absolutely lovely! Congratulations!
