The second collection of The Simple WhatNots Club has been announced and the shop is doing this club one more time, from January to June, 2015. See the projects here. We only have room for 30 people to sit for the two-hour monthly demo. Many in this first club are signing up again--they love Kim Diehl fabrics and have learned a few things.
Another fun project I completed was a Quiltalong small mystery quilt from Lori D of Humble Quilts.
Folks in the string block swap I put together have decided what colors/design they want for their blocks. I wrote about that here. That tutorial showed how to split the block exactly in half with two different colors. Three of the seven of us want a 1" finished strip down the center of the block, like this:
Finally, I started Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt, even though I said I would not until I got a few more things done. There are over 23,000 people on her Facebook group, Quiltville's Open Studio, and I think most of them got started this Friday November 28, when the first clue was released. Click the Grand Illusion link below to go to Bonnie's Blog--then click on Grand Illusion Mystery in the heading--the introduction and Part 1 are posted--or click here. Each Friday until the end of 2014 she'll have another part of instructions. Here are my first little 4" finished units:
I am not in a hurry to complete this so I'll use it for my leader/ender project. The fun part for me is picking all the fabrics and I wrote about that here.
That will do it for now. I'm almost finished Little Letters and will have that to show next time. Linking up to Bonnie's Monday Mystery and Patchwork Times.
