January Design Camp 3

It’s my month to host Design Camp’s improvisational bee “Think Outside the Block.”  What fun it will be when eleven amazing creations start showing up in my mailbox, and just in time for my birthday, too!

My daughter picked up this cute fabric at Ikea in Dallas while she was on Spring Break last March.  I love these graphic houses and decided they would be a perfect backing for a sampler of improv designs.

These are the Kona solids I found to match.  From the top they are denim, spearmint, plum, baby blue, oyster, and pepper.  I can’t wait to see what the “Campers” come up with!

I need to finish up one more baby quilt then I can concentrate on our KCMQG winter challenge.  These beauties are from the Madrona Road collection by Portland Modern Quilt Guild member Violet Craft.

You can read about it on the MQG blog here.  I’ve got my idea mapped out and I only have until Feb. 14 to get it finished.  Yikes pikes, that’s pretty soon!  I’m off to the sewing room…
