I’m a sucker for a good group project. Exhibit a, the 2012 Fat Quarter Shop BOM that I started with friends, that remains stagnant at month four. Or the Once Upon A Time cross stitch sampler, slightly more current, but still woefully behind. Dear Jane, ripple crochet, art journalling, the list is endless. Maybe I should call myself Little White Sheep…
My latest endeavour is taking part in the Sea Breeze Mini Quiltalong. Hosted by Angie at Gnome Angel, this blog hop is currently in week two, with the big reveal planned for this coming Saturday. I shared my progress and planning last week as part of the blog hop, including a free planning printable for you to download and attack with some coloured pencils to plan your layout. There are so many ways to take the same basic pattern, and make it your own. For example:
I adore this bright modern version by Ms Midge:
And a similar emphasis with a twist by Bec of Skyberries Handmade
Then Sel at Mad Quilters Disease stayed a bit closer to the pattern with some very cool results:
There are also plenty of pretty pictures over on Instagram in the #seabreezemqal tag to get you inspired. There’s still some time if you haven’t joined in yet. If you sewing along, be sure to leave a link in the comments and show us what your version looks like!
