Funky Wonky Forest!

Here is the forest that I have grown in the last few days....

They are supposed to be wonky but I think they are more scrappy!   

I have strip pieced, curve pieced, appliqued, and reverse appliqued!  So much learnt - still lots to learn but I am taking steps forward....albeit wonky ones!

My forest will be flying off to the US and then distributed somewhere in the world.  I love that - a bit of my stuff ending up with someone else's stuff, somewhere on this round ball floating in space.  Awesome isn't it?

I have found this swap inspiring, challenging and fun!  The girls in the group are fun and supportive too and Jane our swap mamma is fabulous !  She manages to keep us in order - such a hard job!

The next round will be wonky four patches - nice and easy - and wonky stars - which I love too!  We have yet to decide whether the star blocks will be 9.5, 6.5, or 3.5 inches square! 

But I am not scared of this coming round as I have already done all these sizes on Cindy's choice of bee block in January - as you can see here....

- the Stargazer block which she is making into a great quilt!   Check it out!

We have the option to go for both blocks or just one, and we do a multiple of 4 - 4, 8 or 12!  It's that simple....!  If you want to join - here is the Flickr group

Oh and Happy Easter everyone!
