The border print for quilt #52 this year is on backorder, so this may become the penultimate quilt of 2011. Karen Snyder of Anna Lena's Quilts in Long Beach, Washington hosts a "block-a-day" challenge each season. Every day you make a single block, and at the end of the season you have 90 or 91 blocks. The design for Fall is the "hourglass" block. I'm making mine from Denyse Schmidt's prints for JoAnn fabrics. Here are my blocks so far:
The background is navy blue polka dots. Doesn't this just make you want to go on a picnic? Here's the link to Karen's blog. She won't start the next block-a-day challenge until January 1st, so don't use the holidays as an excuse not to play! Anna Lena's specializes in 30s reproduction fabrics -- and really wonderful fudge!
