Each year these super fun girls:
Get together to make a little something something... out of a mini charm pack of Vanessa Christensen's latest fabric collection. This time it is Color Theory I guess we are all feeling a little rebellious since both Sally and I cheated a little bit. It was supposed to be a finished project but instead I made a block... I will explain why but first here is a picture:
Today my husband and I spent 7 hours on the road and a couple at my mom's house moving things. Bringing home some of my mom's earthly treasures. Deciding what to do with the rest. I promised a tutorial for this block but it will not happen until Monday now... I am sorry about that. I will post links to everyone's projects on Monday too.
This will be the first of a series of tutorials of house blocks. Each one will express something that is in my/your house. They won't be super formal or anything like a perfect pattern because I want it to be free flowing and fun. This block started out as a nebulous idea and I started with the roof... then just added on pieces as I went until it seemed done. It is 16" but I am not going to guarantee any of the others will be that size. Like I said free flowing. I have no idea how big the quilt will be I might make 4 blocks I might make 20... and I don't know when the next one will be... a month-ish.
I got the idea to do a house project from my friend Andrea who owns an awesome Art Studio called A Work of Heart here in San Jose. She has an on going house project... you can see some of it here on the walls in this picture:
Anyway... see ya Monday with a tute!
Hugs to you all and thanks so much for your prayers and good wishes. If you didn't get a personal answer it is because you didn't have an email attached to your blogger account. I do appreciate them all though, so much!
