You actually have two months to get this project finished. If it is OK with everyone, I will take the January slot again. Then you can send the blocks together for both December and January.
Here are the details:
I used the colors in this fabric for inspiration: cream, white, black & white, red, orange, aqua, olive green, yellow. You don't need to have all 8 colors in one block! ;-) Fabrics can be a combination of prints and solids.
At this website: http://www.quilterscache.com/QuiltBlocksGalore.html you can scroll down to "Blocks by Size." Click on 12" and choose a block (or two!) to make (it will be 12.5" unfinished). Or if there is another 12.5" block that you like from another source, you can make that too.
I've been working on a few this week to get us started:
It has been interesting to search through and find some easy, traditional blocks and to visualize what they will look like in more modern fabrics and then actually create them. I hope you enjoy looking through all of the choices available. Also, if there is one of the blocks that I made here in this photo that you also want to make, feel free! It won't matter if there are two of the same blocks.
I wish you all a happy holiday season!
