Sorry it’s a few days late, people, life has been a bit busy.
We are just over halfway through our first month of F²F², the second round of Foot²Freestyle. This month, it’s Lynn’s turn, and her palette of navy, gold and grey is planned to make a masculine quilt for her husband. So far, the blocks that have been produced look perfect!
There are only 9 of us in this session, and I think this will make life a good bit easier for everyone in the long term. At this point in the month, we already have 7 of the contributions posted in the gallery on the F2F blog (click through for a look), so only two left to come, one of which is mine. I’m finding sewing a bit harder than I’d hoped. My back is not happy at protracted periods bent over a cutting table, light box or sewing machine, so I have to work bit by bit. However, I will get my blocks done and posted by the end of the month!
I’m really delighted at how much the skills and adventurousness of the participants in this round have improved. Some of us are already very experienced piecers and quilters, and others are relative newcomers to the art, but seeing each others’ work has proved inspirational and encouraging for all of us.
Right, I’d better spend some time in the sewing room today. I’ve got blocks to produce!
