Foot²Freestyle 2015/16

Screen Shot 2015-03-14 at 7.32.54 pm

F²F 2015/16 is now closed, except for the addition of finished quilt shots.  

 

 

 

 

For the new series, please visit http://footsquarefreestyle.wordpress.com

Welcome to Foot²Freestyle, a block swap party for 12 quilters!

How it works: Each quilter chooses a colour or colours for her quilt, makes three foot-square (12 x 12 inch) blocks for herself, and receives three blocks from each of the other participants in her chosen colours. By the end of the 12 months, each of us will have 36 foot-square blocks to assemble into a quilt or quilts, pillows, placemats, or whatever takes our fancy. The blocks can be in any style or design, so long as they are the specified size and colour. Freestyle, remember? All blocks can be the same design but different colours, or every single one different. At the end, we hope to show each quilt or other item made from them, with links to the makers. If it goes well, and people enjoy both participating and viewing the process, we will repeat the block swap next year, and for as long as we are all still enjoying it.

Be sure to visit every month to follow our progress and see photos of our work, which will be posted below the list of participants, month by month. Just scroll down all the way to the end to see the latest work.

  1. […] starts us all off in June with a lovely selection of colours to play with. If you go to the F²F page on this blog you will find all the colours selected so far, and this will be updated as we receive […]

  2. knettycraft says:

    … many interesting and challenging colour combinations… I’m already today really curious about these 12 block-wonders 🙂

  3. Nanette says:

    Wonderful colour choices here, how exciting! My head is already with thought of how to combine what with what and how. Roll on June! Kate…..will we have a “post-by” date or do we get them away as we can…..not too late into the next month obviously!

    • katechiconi says:

      I think if we all aim conscientiously for the last day of the calendar month, we shouldn’t go too far wrong. Some of the blocks will have a long way to travel and may need as much of a head start as we can give them.

  4. Nanette says:

    head is already ….*spinning, falling off, bursting* but obviously not concentrating 🙂

  5. tialys says:

    Sorry I’m late – I just couldn’t decide what colours I wanted. Not sure whether I should post my decision here but I will anyway.
    Background: Dark grey
    Colours: Pale Grey, White and Turquoise/Teal blue (little bits of coral would be fine)
    This fabric was my inspiration, just for clarity,

    I’ve been fabric shopping for Esther. There was very little in the chosen jadeite/minty blue-green, but the very nicest and my favourite by far was a sweet baby fabric with bunnies and ducklings! Did I buy it ?….you’ll have to wait and see and be pleasantly …or otherwise…..surprised Esther 🙂
