They are SUPER CUTE.
I feel this tug as though I'm missing out on something big if I don't jump in and join the bandwagon. But honestly, I'm not much of a bandwagon kind of girl.
It's almost like a kind of unspoken peer pressure:
"Everyone else is doing it"
"One block won't hurt"
"C'mon, you know you want to"
I almost designed a button that said I wasn't participating. Not because I'm against it- because I'm not. I just can't start one more project that I know will not get finished. You know what I mean? Too many UFO's!
I hope this isn't coming across as rude. I don't mean it to. I think the book is awesome and the blocks are fantastic. What I really love is the variety of fabrics that people are using. So out of the box for a more traditional design and they really are BEAUTIFUL.
So I'm going to live vicariously through all of you who ARE doing the quilt-a-long and admire the blocks from afar. Keep up the good work.
Oh, and if you're interested in playing catch-up and following along, click the link above to find out all about it. And to see the awesome blocks some of them are doing visit their flickr group. :o)
