It’s that time of the month again, when the blog posts come thick and fast, and now it’s time for the final progress report of our first Foot²Freestyle year.
It’s lovely, but also a bit sad, to remind you that for some of you this will be the last nag/ reminder/ encouragement I’ll be issuing for F²F. Happily, though, others have enjoyed it enough or have time enough to join us for the next session, although the group will be a little smaller, and the quilts too… For some, that may not be a problem; you do end up with a very substantial quilt if you use all the 36 blocks that result from F²F, and something a bit smaller and more manageable may well be preferable. We now have three completed quilts showing in the gallery, Pat’s, Avis’ and now our latest, Lynn’s. All three show just how amazing these beautiful sampler quilts can be, how such varied work and small variation in colour can make the whole really come to life. I know that Sue is hot on the heels of Lynn’s finish, and by the end of the month, I hope we’ll have hers on display too.
Now that it’s my month, I’ve been overjoyed with how beautiful the May blocks I’ve been sent have been. And you’ve all done so well – halfway through the month there are only 5 sets outstanding – one of which is my own! Pretty impressive for the end of a year-long block swap, and I’m so grateful :-). Please don’t hesitate to send in photos as soon as you’ve mailed the blocks; I find the excitement of actually receiving the squishy entirely makes up for the slight lack of surprise about the content!
I hope those of you who are giving your time and attention to other projects over the coming months will still find time to drop in at F²F‘s new home, look at our colour choices and check out what’s going on in the gallery. I’ll still do my progress and roundup reports here, but the gallery will now be situated at the purpose built F²F blog, and I’ll provide a link for easy click-through. We have an amazingly vivid and varied set of colour schemes going on, and I fully expect some of the new quilts to be sensational!
