F²F³: Footsquare Freestyle July roundup

Month 2 is now complete in this third series of F²F.

July is Sue’s month, and like last month, all blocks have either arrived or are now en route. I think she has only about 3 squishies left to arrive 🙂 Good going, ladies! Sue had a classic blue and white colour palette, and the blocks she’s receiving are going to make an incredibly beautiful quilt.

If you want to see the finished blocks, go to the F²F 2018 gallery here, and if you want to check out the colour palettes, go to the Members/ Colours page here. F²F reference and finished block images are now maintained on a separate blog due to their image-heavy nature, and the home page is here, if you want to bookmark it or follow it. The galleries are a useful library of colour and block designs, and the previous session is also stored there.

August is Claire’s month, and she has chosen a vibrant, modern palette of black, grey and turquoise on a white background. I’ve picked out my fabrics, and I’ll be starting work soon. It’s going to be fun!

See you same time next month.

    Two lovely quilts in the making so far. I’ve finished Claire’s first one but the time seems to be whizzing past so quickly this year, I’d better start the other two otherwise it’ll be September before we know it 😦

      I must say, I think Sue’s blocks will make a gorgeous ‘Dresden’ style quilt. I’ve got the first of Claire’s done, but I must finish the other two blocks in the next day or so, as next week I will be totally inundated by motorbike rally minutiae and won’t have sewing time at all.

    so exciting!
    I haven’t made a start on my own blocks yet, it’s been so hot! Might have to bring my sewing machine downstairs into the kitchen where it’s cooler.

    I think I’ll mail Claire’s yet this week if I have a chance to run downtown in between camp stuff. They have been waiting, because I knew it was going to be crazy here come August. I need to get cracking on September though, because its going to be touch and go in the sewing room the next month.

      Remember to breathe! I have a similar situation this month: motorbike rally, then leaving on vacation 2 days later. Blocks for September are a bit easier for me, though, Nanette is just in the next state!

        I posted Sue’s away right on the wire, and have been thinking about Claire’s. I’ve recently found a new-to-me quilt shop an easy distance away, so plan on some fabric shopping before I start. I can’t believe some of you are thinking about September and mine already! But how exciting.

      • katechiconi says:

        I saw your note about Fifi’s – I’ve been shopping online there for a while. I get their newsletter, and they have a sale on just now. I’ll forward you the email so you can take advantage of the discount code 🙂
        I have to start thinking about September as I’m either busy or away a lot of this month. Claire’s are done, time to start rootling in the cupboard !

  4. what a brilliant idea. like a quilting party, but remotely. Love it.

    • katechiconi says:

      It is fun, and you end up with a whole bunch of blocks you didn’t make yourself, using fabrics you don’t necessarily have access to. We’ve had some gorgeous quilts made from the results, and because you can make whatever block you like, it’s accessible for less experienced quilters as well as the superstars!

    Like! I´m planning to start on my blocks from F2F2. Finally! They have been in my head and suddenly I had an idea on how to sew the quilt! Not the one I had from the beginning, no, this is a totally new idea 🙂 I have already bought some fabrics for the quilt-as-you-go project!
