I am in an "Online" stitching group called FIS and in 2010 we each chose a block throughout the year then each of us completed the same block in our own choice of colours. I based mine on Japanese blues and taupes and added a bit of Sashiko throughout.
We didnt know what the next block was until the next month,, so it was a bit like a Mystery Quilt. Well I did have this completed at the end 2011 however, it has taken a further 12 months to quilt as you go, however, I got to the finish line last night.
Now I can happily move on to the next unfinished project, as have been very sidetracked along the way that it makes it hard to get back to those things we started!! Am sure I am not the only quilty one of doing this:
