I'm playing along with Quilt Pixie as she makes somewhat random blocks each week. She chooses one block out of many, and the rest of us play along, just for fun. I like the idea, because sometimes I love to just sit down and make a block. And I get to play with random fabrics that I love but that are not in current projects in my to-do list. This is my first block: Broken Dishes Variation.
Then I also decided to make a few blocks for Mary and the Heartstrings Project. Here are mine.
And here is my Ugly Quilt. Got it over with on Jan. 3, so the rest of my 2009 quilts will be gorgeous. Isn't that the rule? I made it from scraps and named it Leave No Scraps Behind. I think I should have, though. To make up for its ugliness, it will have this bright and fun backing. Whoever gets this quilt can just turn it over and use the orange side as the top.
