With one of my yahoogroups we have a yearly project. In 2010 it was a big one: the canal houses. They have been swapped although some are still in the mail. I must admit I have not yet started working on the assembling. After such a huge project, the project for 2011 is smaller. Every month we will make a block in a specific color. How big the block is, is up to the maker. How elaborate or how simple it is, the same. The color for January is white. I decided to make a simple lopsided log cabin using different white fabrics: pfd, commercial, silk and decorate it with white yarn. Here is the picture:
The reason that I keep it rather simple is that at the end of the year I want to use the blocks as a background for applique. I know how and what I want to do with them, but that is something I am not yet telling :-).
My blocks started out as 10"x10", only I made a measuring mistake and cut a couple of blocks 10"x9"from my stabilizer. That meant that I had to change all my blocks to 9"x9". The advantage of not having to swap :-).
