You can tell that I have completed my major project, when I start looking for new things to do. Just recently I had a request from a couple of magazine editors for something they could commission. First place for me to look is in my UFO boxes! It would be nice to get a few things out of the boxes, completed, and a few dollars into my secret sewing account.....you all have one of those, don't you?
I did find a few things I would like to finish, but not necessarily ones that could be published. Do you have a heap of odd blocks? I do, and have come up with a plan, and I am going to let you share it, and join along if you like. Many years ago, one of the first quilts I saw, and admired greatly was one of those "odd block" quilts.....where you add blocks together randomly, and somehow they all match, and look fabulous. I want one of those!
This is the plan............each time I will show a collection of blocks that adds up to 12". That might be one 12" .......or one 8" plus, a few 4" blocks,.......... or nine 4".......or any combination there of. When the time comes to put them together they *should* all fit as the governing size is 12". Do you get it??
If I get enough people, who might want to join in, then I will post the instructions here on my blog. I am trying to work out how I can do that as a "click on" side bar thing, but if I can't work it out, then it might be just typed in like this. I am hoping to do one a week.
Are you up for the challenge???
Footnote......I just worked out how to do it as a "side bar" link! Happy!
