Rachel G at ps I quilt is hosting a Calendar Quilt Challenge. I've been thinking about doing a block a day or something like that for a while, so I have joined. It's very easy and no huge rules, just really a quilt that you work on during 2009. Visit Rachel to join.
(see that blue fabric with the little acorns on it on the left hand side of the pic? That is some of the last of this fabric, the first quilt fabric I ever bought - 4ocm of it maybe 10 years ago!)
Rachel G is sewing 1" x 10" strips together each day, and I have decided on these simple blocks. I've just cut 3" squares and added 1.5" borders (unfinished). I'm working in blues and browns but realistically I expect some other colours will creep in. I've made up 7 so for now I am ahead.
We have had a big weekend with my family all getting together for my nieces 3rd birthday. My sister has moved to a new house on 5 acres so the kids had heaps to do, and lots of my sisters friends kids to play with along with their cousins. I was worn out, never mind the kids!
Jodie has just posted about the huge Trash and Treasure blogmeet next weekend, so looking forward to that one too!
