I couldn't resist this one: Pile O'Fabric's Skill Builder Block of the Month. I signed up, but I've already given myself permission to not do all the blocks since
A) Some of the blocks look like things I already know how to do, or don't really tickle my fancy
B) I've got a lot of WIPs going on (is this just the new-school term for UFO's?)
C) Sampler quilts don't really tickle my fancy
D) I'm on the verge (I HOPE!!!) of getting a new job, so I might be kind of busy soon.
E) I can't afford to buy a bunch of new fabric for now
I'm thinking I'll try most of them and make placemats or mini-quilts out of them individually, and if any of them are totally cool, I can make a quilt out of that. They're quilt-as-you-go, so that makes me feel like I won't be just making a new big pile of UFOs.
Some of the blocks look SO COOL, and I'm most excited about doing some practice with free-motion quilting, since I've only tried a few inches' worth, ever! Yay! I'll keep you posted :)
Meanwhile, in fabric bowl land...
And these are some Design Seeds color schemes I want to play with some day. Some day.....
