Welcome, everyone, to the first month of F²F²!
We start this new round with Lynn’s gorgeous colour choices. Hop over to the colour page to see what we’re all working with, and to get your fabric shopping list sorted out if you haven’t already started. Oh dear, fabric shopping, what a hardship!
As before, it is the plan to refrain from posting about the blocks you have made until their new owner has confirmed they have arrived. It appears you’ve all enjoyed the surprise of opening the squishies that arrived in the mail, so we’ll keep this going. If you have questions for each other, please use the email addresses I have provided on the member list – this does not appear on the blog for privacy reasons, and if you have mislaid it, please let me know and I’ll send it again.
As this block swap only runs for 9 months, you will hopefully find it more enjoyable and less of a problem to make the three blocks each month. If you were in the previous F²F block swap, let me urge you to send me images of the blocks you made for yourselves, as in most cases I don’t have these. And of course, I want photos of your beautiful finished quilts 🙂
So ladies, get sewing. Ready, set, go!
The 2016/17 session members have been busy!
All colour selections are in, and my word, we’re looking fabulous! It’s a wonderful collection of bright, brilliant, zingy and awesome shades, and even better, there are crossovers so we can use the same colours again for different members and make the best use of the fabrics we buy. I’m thrilled at the idea of all the beautiful scraps I’ll have to play with afterwards. I can feel another scrappy quilt coming on…
I admit I’m now almost chewing my nails with excitement because next month it’s finally my turn for F2F1, but I’m so looking forward to getting started with F2F2 in June.
Just so you know, Nanette is hoping to be stitching along ‘beside’ us, as it were; she couldn’t commit to joining the whole session, but she’s hoping to make three blocks for herself each month too, so I’m hoping we can do a guest spot for her at the end.
Six weeks till we begin… 😉
The gallery page for Foot² Freestyle is moving!
Storing and displaying the images for this block swap consumes a great deal of data, so I have started this blog as a place for us to visit and view the work of the members, starting with the 2016/2017 session commencing on June 2016.
Just click on the Gallery page to view the images, the Session Members to see who’s participating, or on About to get an explanation of how the block swap works.
For the regular updates and progress reports, you’ll need to head back to Kate’s blog.
