free piecing fun

I was invited to partner up with one of my fellow Kristas, otherwise known as lolablueocean, for Sarah and Molly's Free Piecing Study on flickr.

The concept is that each month through October, each person make a pair of two blocks (of one or two different "patterns," depending on the month) for herself and her partner. At the end of the project, we should each have 30 blocks to use for a quilt.

January's blocks are a log cabin house block and a mondo bird block. I put together the house blocks this afternoon. Totally fun!

We're having ultra-cold temps here. It was -14 F when we woke up this morning, and it's not supposed to get above zero until later in the week. So while we've been housebound, it's been kind of nice laying low. I hope all of you have had a good weekend!

Gosh, that's cold. I have been moaning because it's been in the teens. I love the house blocks. The free piecing study sounds fun!

Those are great! I've been wanting to do a house type quilt for my mom's birthday which is Friday. I don't think I"m gonna have time, but maybe a wall hanging with something like this would work. A "home is where the heart is" theme.
Try to keep warm!!
