Sometimes, you have to be adaptable.
One of the fundamental ideas behind F²F is that there should be an element of surprise. Each member is assigned a month, and for the duration of that month they don’t visit the F²F gallery to see the blocks accumulating there, and the other members don’t post about their blocks until they know they’ve arrived safely at their destination. When the blocks arrive, they’re a surprise. It’s all part of the fun.
That isn’t going to work now. For safety’s sake, we’ve suspended the mailing of blocks for the time being. That being so, it’s unfair on everyone to prevent the makers from posting, and making the receivers wait for months to see what they’re going to get, whilst somehow, magically, avoiding their own blocks in the gallery. So for now, If you’ve made blocks for a member, you can post about them at the end of that month, on the last day or the first few days of the next.
And so, without further ado, here are some F²F blocks for you to enjoy.
Firstly, February’s blocks for Tracy:
And then March’s blocks for Sue:
We’re currently in the process of making April’s blocks for Lynn, so you can look forward to those at the end of this month.
Not all the F²F members are bloggers, and not everyone will want to post about their blocks. For a view of the full range, go to the gallery. You’ll see everything produced so far in this session, plus the galleries for the past two sessions. That’s a lot of colour and inspiration.
I’ll be doing the usual end of month round up on the last day of April, but this time I might post some images too!
Flexibility is a needed virtue these days!
It certainly is, and it isn’t hard to adapt something like this for the time being.
Lovely… and so many ideas for me to work with 😍
We all have favourite blocks you’ll see several times, but colour makes all the difference.
I’ve started my next project… it’s pinks … not sure what I’m making with it … it’s all square pieces so will need to machine … it’s going to be a bit different so let’s see how I go .
What kind of pink? Pale or bright? And I need to show you a couple of tricks for getting things to line up. Another F/T tomorrow?
Yes please … I can show u what I’ve done so far … bright pinks
I’ve made all Susan’s blocks for May already but I won’t put them in the gallery until end of April. I’m trying to get ahead just in case we do end up moving later this year and then I won’t have to play catch up. My own ones can wait until the end.
That’s probably a good plan. I really liked making your blocks – great colour choices!
Just checked out the gallery — all the blocks are beautiful. When our lives return to normal, it will be nice see all these blocks sewn up into quilts.
That particular process tends to take time; often the makers integrate them into a couple of quilts, or they take a while to get round to it. When I get the final quilt photo, I put it up with the blocks, at the end of that person’s month.
Thanks! You get such a great variety being shared with this block swap.
