Another new adventure I'm going to be participating in is the 2016 Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop.
Each participant is sent the same 5 fat quarters of fabric. Aren't these pretty?
We are each to design a 12 inch block using at least three or more of these fabrics and no additional fabrics. Then on September 12, 13, and 14 we are to publish our block design and a tutorial about how to make it along with the list of everybody else in the blog hop. We'll all send our blocks to one person to be sewn into a quilt for charity. I think they ought to auction or raffle the quilt off and give us all participants a chance to win it and then send the MONEY to charity! There are over 60 of us participating so there should be enough blocks for several nice size quilts.
I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with!
I tell you what, I have a whole new respect for pattern writers. I designed my block and sewed a practice block, but writing up the instructions took forever! I'm excited to show you!
I apologize for this pretty boring post. I did sew this week, but it was on this block and I can't show you yet!
Oh! I almost forgot. I'm also participating in a quilty read along kind of thingy. There are six of us participating. Bernie at Needle and Foot started us off with a book she had read called Vinegar Girl and sent it to the next person on the list with some fabric that reminded her of something in the book. Tami was next and now she has sent it to me. Tami sent me this! A cute doodle she and her daughter drew and a lovely note explaining why she chose the fabrics she did. I loved the note, Tami!
So I am in the middle of reading the book called Vinegar Girl. If anybody is interested in participating in the next round of reading, you can learn about it here:
Again, sorry for the lack of color and creating of any kind. I'll do better next time!!
I love when you stop by, so please come again!
