Over the past several months, I've been working on a virtual quilting bee with some other crafty friends. Each person mailed out their fabric and some general guidelines about what they like and don't like, and each other person created 2-3 quilt blocks for them. It has been so fun to see how people put fabrics and patterns together, and to see each person's style emerge in their work. And even more fun was being given the challenge of creating blocks with fabric that I did not choose; it was a great path to creativity to be given random materials and asked to make something new. Fabric that I would never have purchased for myself became suddenly inspirational, and I've learned to appreciate all different colors and styles. This arrangement above is a brainstorm for how I might put my quilt blocks together. In the meantime, I'm quilting each block as I go, and am excited to reach a finished product, sometime in the new year!
