Houses from Scraps Sew Along

Looking For My Giveaway Posts? Check My Right Sidebar


Here's a fun new challenge I read about today.  Jeanneke is starting a challenge on January 1st to make a quilt from one 3 x 3 house block per day.  (Jeanneke is from The Netherlands--one of my favorite countries--and her blog is in Dutch.  You'll have to run it on Google translator to read it in English.)  "Challenge" is the operative word for this one because it will definitely take persistence and commitment to complete all 366 houses by the end of the year.  They are small, however, and made from scraps.  When you're finished, you'll have a quilt 60 x 80 inches, but you can make it even larger by adding a sashing or borders.  It's all up to you. 

Sounds like fun. I'll give it a go!

I don't know how to paper piece (or make my own pattern from the picture) so I won't be joining... but I will be watching excitedly to see yours :) How fun to do a quilt with so many people at once!

I went over to her site, but couldn't find anything about a sign up page. for this, or a pattern. Am I missing something?
