Woolie ~ Non-Wool Challenge

phewwww...I am back in the saddle again!!!  I ventured out to stitch with the Woolies...the first time in over a week I have sat and stitched with girlfriends!!!  Girlfriends are a true blessing life...not only catching up on all the news but having Lori figure out what I did wrong on my knitting! LOL

We had not see each other since before Christmas when we formulated the 2015 Challenge for the group.  I fell in love with a quilt in the #103 issue of Quiltmania and presented to the group an opportunity for each to create our own quilt using the same pattern.

The quilt is simple to construct but has a powerful presence with a 100 one inch squares in each block!  It is all strip pieced and takes about 1 hour per block.

These are my blocks.  We had a schedule of 4 blocks a month but since I will be incognito for a couple of weeks in February I decided to make both January and February's blocks.  I have chosen a red palette.

now...Marilyn, did not read the directions and so constructed her first  block by piecing each square...cursing me the entire time. the instructions and subsequently made 15 blocks.

Mary R. the overachiever made 18 blocks and total equivalant of 4.5 months worth of blocks.

Blogless Sandy is using a fat quarter pack which means her quilt will be bigger than all of our!

Nancy finished 3 blocks with a nice homespun look

...and finally Lori is making hers with a nice Batik look.

Anne of Cottons n' Wool had the flu and was not able to think about sewing so will be catching up and a few of our other Woolies will be jumping on board.  Come join us in the fun!!!  I will be sharing what the Woolies and I have been working on this last few weeks over the next couple of days :)
