It is our first month and I am soooooo excited. I have been wanting to make a wonky house quilt for a while now and have not had time with .. having a baby, packing, moving from NC to CA, unpacking, holidays... more unpacking. I just unpacked all my quilting fabric yesterday... see this bee got me to finally do it.
Here are a couple shots of the fabric I am going to cut up and send to you girlies:)
It looks like a lot of fabric... it might be, but I want to have a good assortment to send to each of you.
THEME: Wonky Houses/ Wonky Log Cabin Houses. Either is fine with me, unless you guys think it will be weird to have both types? Please make sure to use the Sky blue colors as the sky and the true greens as the grass:)
BLOCK SIZE: 12.5" finished
Can we add fabric from our stash: Sure as long as it is not some random weird color like orange that doesn't match.
EMBELISHMENTS: I prefer nothing that is raised making it hard to quilt. However, I am fine if you want to add trees etc. to the block, see examples. Or if you happen to have a little gnome...unfortunately I do not have any of that darling fabric~
THREAD COLOR: Either white or cream.
TUTORIAL: http://www.quiltville.com/tonya/houses.shtml If you know of any other great house tutorials, add them to flickr.
INSPERATION: Here is a link to my flickr Faves, you can see all the fun wonky houses I love. My faves are the one with the gnome(pinks) and the mushroom shaped one.
I hope that covers it. I will be mailing out fabric by Monday latest!
