I have been pondering what I want to work on in 2015...I have soooo many projects in various stages of development...doesn't that sound like I have everything under control....instead of saying...I have soooo many projects which are either UFO's, WIP's,...or just plain PIGs. I haven't formulated my plan of attack but I have decided that there is at least one NEW project I am going to jump into in 2015. In fact I have already made the first block :)! Last month I attended the East of the Cascade Quilt Guild meeting and I fell in love with some blocks that a fellow member made. When I asked her about the pattern she said it came out of a Quilt Mania magazine...one of my favorite mags!
I showed it to Blogless Sandy and she was "all about it"! So, we decided to support each other in making 4 blocks a month!
The photo doesn't do it justice...but a 100 1-inch blocks per block...well that is just down right dramatic! To help those who are already hyperventilating...it is strip pieced :). When we showed the rest of the Woolies...they decided to jump on board and it has become a group project. Of course, some will make theirs with brights...or batiks...but me...I am sticking to my Civil War stash. If you want to join us...please do and I will show off your quilts along with ours. I figure it will take us about 8 months...no pressure!
Here is my block one tester block which took me one hour to make. ( I am already ahead of blogless Sandy, hehehe) We will officially start in January.
I can't stop with the holiday videos...lol.
