Round 1, led by Dana, was Rail Fence http://oldredbarnco.blogspot.com/. Round 2 was half square triangles to make Zig Zag, with Park City Girl, http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/ (Amy recently hosted the Blogger's Quilt Fest...thanks Amy!)
Round 3 is Wonkie Log Cabin, led by John at Quilt Dad. PS- he's hosting a giveaway- go check it out! http://www.quiltdad.com/
This quilt is made from a collection of free floral scraps-true leftovers on their way to the landfill. Our quilt group had a show and stash sale to benefit American Hero Quilts, and these are some of the beauties that didn't sell.
If you haven't done a quilt along before, it's been so much fun! Each week, we have a tutorial and an assignment. (Don't worry, if you're too busy, you just get to it when you can.) But it's great to see what everyone is working on as they post pics on flickr. (Join us for our next one-circles! Heidi will lead this round: http://www.flickr.com/groups/oldredbarncoquiltalong2009/)
Okay, some of them are not that beautiful. But I thought that all together, they might work into something funky/pretty. And I just hate to see things going to waste. Not one of these florals were from my stash, so it was fun thinking about what someone may have made with these, or how long some of them had been stashed! I'm sure some were from the 70s and 80s.
(Gingersnap, the barn cat, agreed.)
