I just can't resist a quiltalong, can you? Spellcheck doesn't like the word, but it makes perfect sense to me, and it sounds like one word, not two.
I joined one for my Swoon blocks, I'm still working on them (slowly!). Lots of people joined that group, some of the fabric choices were just stunning!
Then I joined one called Oh My Stars, and learned more than I really wanted to know about Sawtooth stars. The quilt is finished, and it was lots of fun seeing how everyone else's colour choices worked out. We traded tips on making flying geese and admired everyone's efforts. That's the thing about a quiltalong, it comes with tips, advice, and a cheering section. Those are all things that motivate me!
There's a picture of that quilt under the tab above for 2012 quilts. I must get a better picture.
So when I saw that Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey was having a quiltalong with a pattern by Anna Maria Horner, I couldn't resist! It kicked off today, but being a keener I had already started. I thought I'd make a baby quilt, so I'm using Little Apples by Anneela Hoey. Today I find I need more, so on to another favourite activity, fabric shopping. Did I really need an excuse?
Here are my blocks so far, big guys, 18", so I only need six for my quilt.
Linking to WIP Wednesday, I can't wait to see what everyone else is doing!
Till next time
