It is called ‘My Favourite Block Quilt-Along” and the idea is that you can join in and make your own blocks, with a different block designer each time. It is ideal for using up fabric scraps- go to Persimon Dreams website who is the host for this, and have a look at some of the quilts made last year.
It’s also a great way to practise different block designs and techniques, and when you are making one block at a time, before you know it you have enough for a quilt. You don’t even have to do every block if you don’t want to, or you may decide to do multiples of a copy that you really like.
Each block will be given in two sizes- either 12″ finished or 6″ finished. Here is a little hint to what I will be giving: it involves lots of strips- (or maybe not!)
Below is the list of blocks and designers- it starts next Tuesday January 15th and I’ll be giving mine on February 26th. There will be a Flickr group where you can post photos online of your blocks as you make them and look at how others have created their own.
In this blog’s sidebar I have a ‘button’ that you can click on to go straight to the home of the Quilt Along.
