Wonky House Swap

A few days ago I received 11 fabulous wonky house blocks from a swap organised by Jane from

There were 4 groups of 12 participants and we each made 12 wonky house blocks.  We sent 11 of these to Jane to redistribute among our own group.  I am absolutely delighted with all the blocks I received.  The block I kept for myself is the one in the top left  with the sun in the corner.  Jane has done an excellent job of organising this swap.  Some of us are now making wonky trees for another swap in this group.  I photographed my house blocks with the trees I have made so far.  We will be making wonky stars next.

Too cute!! What a great quilt, it looks like a lot of fun to create.
I love the way you laid out your wonky houses, I keep telling myself to get started on the trees! At this point I haven't laid mine out, I need to clear up some space so I can see them all at once. It was a great swap, wasn't it?
Hi, Maree. Your quilt is going to be great--so full of energy. Great project!
best, nadia

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.


This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project.
