Building Houses from Scraps
There's a new icon on my sidebar. It's from building houses from scraps. This a sew along where quilters will piece one 3" house block each day in 2012. I'll be (hopefully) getting the block as a .pdf later this week. Here is the webpage address. Note the Google translator button on the left. The translation isn't perfect, but it helps. There are over 800 people signed up so far. If you want to join, send an e-mail to Jeanneke at email@example.com If you have a blog, include the address and she'll add it to her sidebar. She'll be emailing all those who join the pattern on December 15th.
I'm a little nervous about this as it seems daunting. Each 3" square has 16 pieces and will need 8 different fabrics. It's the number of so many small pieces that worry me, not the fabrics! I have plenty of those and have begun pressing little pieces in readiness. I will use only blues for the sky and yellows for the windows, but I'm going to use the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink when it comes to the rest f the fabrics. I know some organized quilters will use only 1930s feedbacks or only batiks, but no, not me! I'm going to use everything!
