Quilt update

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Today I want to share the quilts I'm making for the quilt challenges. This one is for the ycmt quilt. We're making this quilt up as we go so every couple of days Kim, the host for this challenge, will give us a new step to add to the quilt. For this step we had two options in which to lay our quilt, and I chose option 2, the not so easy one of the two. It looks kinda wonky because it's not sewn together as one piece, and squared off yet. Can't wait to see where we're going with it next.

This is the quilt for the calendar quilt challenge that Rachel is hosting. The bigger piece is for the month of January. I started out doing strips but decided I wanted to do something different, which is why I have the rectangle piece below it. That is the first piece of February's block. It's leftover from an apron I made for the Amy Butler Apron Swap that Holly is hosting. For this block I'm thinking of making it kinda log cabinish. Actually, I have no clear idea what I want to do with it yet, except that I don't want to do just strips like January.
Okay, so I have to get ready for work. Have a great day!

Carlotta, I think that mixing up the months with different square types will be cool. Can’t wait to see the log cabin-ish appearance it will have for the month! Seems a lot of us are using option 2—even though it isn’t the easier of the two. I think that even though mine started out looking strange, that once I got it sewn together it looks pretty. Someone even told me it’s almost like an optical illusion. I have the feeling that many will be looking that way—with the different fabrics used in them. That’s not a bad thing—is it? LOL ~Shelly~
