In real life Esther and myself have joined efforts, now she is the writer, PR and strength of the group.
You will not believe the amount of things she is doing to make this bigger and bigger.
We will be updating the site over the weekend.
And around the web you can already see some blocks:
I have also been receiving a lot of mail about it, and some blocks are on the mail NOW, this is so exciting...I hope that we can build a wonderful quilt together.
So please give it a try. Don't let the deadline worry you. We will work it out. Just let me know that you are making a block.
Are you lacking inspiration? I have found a quilt block that I think that could be inspiring. It's on the last page of this .pdf It will help you get out of the squareness os the square block. It's from Threads Magazine and there are also some nice articles about embellishments. I'm sure that you'll like to try some of these techniques:
- Stenciling Workshop
- Lush, Embossed Velvet
- Creative Surface Design: Stamping
- Dyeing with Bleach
- Knotted Fabric Buttons and Beads
All these techniques could be used on your block, but I'm sure that you can use them in many, many other places.
