Farewell, 2015, and here’s hoping for a good 2016 for all of us.
We’re almost done in time this month, just one person hasn’t been able to complete by month’s end due to ill health, but I anticipate they’ll be done very soon. I have really enjoyed revisiting the grey/ aqua/ turquoise/ coral/ pink colour palette, especially now that all this practice in paper piecing has improved my skills! Christina is another participant who wants to wait till she has all the other blocks in before she creates her own. Hopefully I’ll receive pictures of what she’s made to add to the gallery at some point. Head over to the F²F gallery page to browse through all the blocks for this month – you won’t be disappointed.
Ladies, January is Emmely’s turn. Her brief is very simple: green, any shade! I think everyone must have some green in their stash; I know I have some lovely fabrics I’m looking forward to playing with. Emmely likes modern quilt blocks (go look at all the amazing blocks she’s made for others so far), so now’s the time to have fun and stretch your imagination with all the wonky, improvised or asymmetrical ideas you can come up with. If you have doubts about anything, do get in touch with her to check; I have already provided all participants with her contact information and correct address.
I hope that you have had a good New Year celebration, and that you are ready for whatever joys and challenges 2016 brings. Hopefully, it includes lots of nice quilt blocks!
