Ever since I started blogging and found Victoria's blog where she had people making house blocks, I have wanted a house block quilt. I just haven't gotten around to putting one together. So, when I saw this opportunity over at Jane's Fabric and Quilts, I jumped on the chance. I will be swapping 12.5" wonky house blocks with 11 other quilters. There is room in another group for more swappers if you are interested. Above is my first wonky house. I made another house block earlier to send to Beth at Love, Laugh, Quilt for a chance to win a few more. She will do the drawing on January 1.
I have been working on these leaders and enders blocks for a while now. I sewed a few hundred 2" squares into pairs. Now I have been creating four patches. I put a few of them up on the design wall just to see what it might look like. I got these squares in a box at an estate sale a while back. They were scissor cut and not all perfectly square, but I think this is going to be a fun quilt.
Today is my one year blog anniversary with this blog, and my 200th post on this blog. All together, I have been blogging for over four years. I love quilt bloggers the best. You are the best, most supportive people out there in blogland. Thank you so much for all your comments and encouragement. I look forward to another year sharing my quilting life with you all.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
