First Quilt Block for Sew Connected 2


Today, I finished my first quilt block for the Sew Connected 2 Flickr group. The group is a virtual quilting bee consisting of 16 quilters from around the world. We will be creating 16 quilts from January, 2009 through April, 2010--one quilt for each of us!

Each month, everyone sews a quilt block for one group member with fabric the member chooses and sends to us. The completed block is mailed back to the sender who ends up with 16 quilt blocks (in just one month) to sew together into a beautiful quilt!

January blocks are being made for quiltinkimmie. She chose wonderful batik fabrics. The colors are so vibrant!

My month is coming up soon--April, 2009--and I've already started gathering fabric for it. I can't help it...this is too much fun!

(Remember, every comment made on any post this week will be entered into a drawing for my One Year Blogoversary giveaway.)

What a great idea. I am so intrigued with all of this blogging. So what is a giveaway and how does it work? I love your square I am looking forward to seeing what fabric you pick out.

At this point my journal squares are posted up on a large piece of fabric in my studio so I can see all of them. I had hoped to do one every week this year but it has ended up being about every month I make a square. They are all 8x10 squares and I make make a book with them at some point but right now they are my way to challenge my creative side.
