I caved. Well, I lasted into March before starting something new this year!
Kathy (I'm going to start calling her dangerous Kathy) posted a few weeks ago about this free new block a week that will be posted on Wednesday's by 6 different designers. It will run for 48 weeks and ..... I'm joining in. I really, really want to get my Grandmothers Choice quilt DONE first..... but since I got it to a top over the weekend, I did allow myself to sew up block #1. They released block #4 today... so it is not too late to start in.
I was originally thinking to do a blue quilt...... but instead I looked over at the stash wall and saw this bundle of fat quarters from Connecting Threads called SweetGrass Prairie.
Wow... poor fabric has been so patient. Well, I think they would look great in this sampler quilt so decision made and block #1 is done. It is called Whirligig and is so darn cute! The blocks will finish off at 6 inches so it will be a nice little quilt when done. I know, he needs pressing.
Oh, and the FB group for it is very dangerous seeing all the pretty blocks popping up. Must hurry and finish that quilt =)
