I'm really trying to get a few WIP's finished without being distracted but there's 2 quilt alongs going on at the moment that I'm finding hard to resist. One is the Building Houses from Scraps where the participants make a little house block from scraps every day for a year!
The other project I'm seeing pop up on everyone's blog is the Swoon along, hosted by Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey. The super 24 inch pieced block looks so effective in any colour combo or fabric style so it's not surprising that the The Swoon Along Flickr group has over 650 members!!!
I was blog hopping a couple of days ago checking out house blocks and seeing lots of Swoon blocks and all of a sudden I had a light bulb moment - How about I combine the two!?!
Houses + Swoon =It'll make a sweet doll quilt and Gbf has already asked if this one can hang on our wall. I guess he's used to me sending my doll quilts away. As for a name I'm thinking Little Houses on Swoon Street or Sunny Day in Swoon Town.
There's another quilt challenge I couldn't resist - Liberated Amish 2012. This one is hosted by Tonia Ricucci of Lazy Gal Quilting. We take inspiration from Amish quilts and make something wonky, playful, strictly no pointy points!! Oh yeah - this one's going to be fun!!
