52 Blocks 52 Weeks Challenge

Want to have some fun this year?
The Canadian Quilters' Association is hosting a free, no sign up required block along. For 52 weeks starting today, you get one free 6 1/2" block to create. All the details to play along are found here.

Guess who had the thrill of making all the blocks and writing all the patterns for each one? Yes, me!
It has been a huge labour, but one of love!  So many people are on board with this. There are quilters from all over the world participating. Many have joined a facebook group created just for this challenge.  Many others are just downloading the pattern from the website and doing it with friends, their guild or all on their own. It is the 2019 in thing to do!

Here is the week one block. I did it in both solids and prints, and I don't know which one I like best!

Why don't you quilt along with us as we have some fun in 2019 with quilters across the world?
