So, for February's block, I
got inspiration am copying from an amazing piece quilter whose blog you can check out here.
This is the general idea...
I love the idea of a quilt representing our little quilt-by-mail bee. And really, what could be more fitting for our Valentine's month square? Is our sewing not a labor of love?
What I'd like is for everyone to make an envelope. I'm sending out white Kona cotton and a 15"x15" piece of muslin with a template drawn on it, which you should get soon. This quilt block is done by foundation piecing (instructional post to come).
You will need to pick out a cotton solid for the outside of the envelope and a print for the envelope lining. I don't have a specific color scheme in mind-- but generally I like summer colors (not too drab, not florescent/neon). Something along the lines of these:
Print wise, anything fun, vintage, Japanese, polka dot, plaid, stripes-- what ever strikes you as charming. :)
I am sooo excited to see what you all come up with!
