I'm going to send out just the background fabric (Kona Cotton in Sand) and I'd like you guys to use little bits and pieces from your scrap pile to make houses, trees or other buildings. I would love a finished quilt that has a kind of bright, but mellow color scheme (I know, completely contradictory), so I think variety is what's going to best achieve that. I'm not going to send fabric until later this week, so let me know if you'd rather have me send you scraps in your package.
I've posted a bunch of inspiration photos in a flickr gallery here (these are ideas for the houses, but also give you a sense of the types of colors that I'm thinking about for this project): http://www.flickr.com/photos/kskovy/galleries/72157623192255774/
Here's a link to a tutorial on making wonky houses: http://quiltville.com/tonya/houses.shtml/
I'd like the houses/trees/buildings to be around 2-4" in an unfinished 12.5" block. If you want to make more than one block, go for it and don't worry if you can't sash both/all of them. I can always complete the blocks when they get to me.
I'm so excited to see what each of you create! Thank you!!
p.s. I'd love it if you could post your pictures on the blog so everyone can see.
