We’ve successfully completed our first month.
All of February’s blocks are on their way to Tracy, and all the photos are up in the gallery barring one set, which is delayed by a sad life-event and will follow in due course.
Tracy went with the Christmas colours of red and green with a cream background, and judging from the results, she’s going to have a memorable Christmas quilt from the results.
March is Sue’s month. She’s chosen shades of true blue from palest to indigo, paired with browns from ecru to milk chocolate. A really pretty combination, and as of today, there are already two sets of blocks in the gallery, so Sue, time to start avoiding it!
If you’re new to this block and don’t know anything about F2F, do head over to the F2F blog and read all about it. The first session can be found on this block, but for subsequent years I set up F2F with its own blog due to the image-heavy nature of the work. You’ll find a rich, varied and vibrant source of inspiration in all the blocks shown in the galleries for the various years. Enjoy!
Now, on with March!
Mine will be in the mail to Sue this week. I only have one more to make!
Good work! You’re way ahead! Do let me know when they’re away and I’ll mark them off the list.
Great colour choices!
I’m going to enjoy working with all the colour choices this time round, the members have chosen great combinations. Take a look at the ‘Members and Their Colours’ page on the F2F blog and you’ll see what I mean!
I’ve made one of Sue’s blocks so far and will try to make another today.
I might be wrong but is it really F2F5 – I thought it was ‘4’ – I’m missing a quilt if you’re right. 🤔
I’m taking liberties with the fact that the first few series ran across two consecutive years…. This is the fifth year we’re doing it, even if it’s not *precisely* the fifth series. So I decided it was F2F5. Sorry if it caused confusion 🙂
Oh, bosh! Nothing wrong with your little grey cells.
You know, I wondered about this too. Glad for the clarification. 😀
Well, I’ve left a goodish gap between hers and yours, so if your willpower’s strong enough, you could scroll down as far as where it says “Margaret’s blocks, to follow” and go no further…?
I was going to have a look at Tracy’s blocks but I guess that will have to wait!
Whoops, replied to the wrong comment, but you get the idea!
Beautiful blocks! I admire you all as I possess neither the sewing prowess nor the patience to sew blocks (it’s the pressing in between that really gets me).
Oddly enough, in the couple of opportunities that I’ve had, I have enjoyed the actual hand quilting process though. Go figure! 😉
I know it’s not for everyone… Maybe you should think about making a Welsh, or wholecloth, quilt. Plain pale fabric, and hand quilted in elaborate patterns, usually the more traditional designs like feathers, etc. You’ll end up with a quilt but without the pesky piecing!
Ooohhh! I just LOVE all of my beautiful blocks! Thank you so so much:)❤️❤️❤️. I have Sue’s blocks ready to go. They should be in The mail today or tomorrow. Yea!!!
You do have some really lovely blocks there, a great way to kick off the session 🙂 I’ll look forward to seeing what you made for Sue when you send the gallery photos.
