2013 New with Old Quilt Challenge

This year, I challenge myself to make a beautiful quilt using all the left over blocs I have been accumulating in a big bag over the years. Trials, extra blocs, outdated styles, etc. I never had the heart to just throw them away, so I'm going to try to make something positive out of them. What a challenge! I have all colors, fabrics and styles of the universe!
I will post an update each month about the progress of my challenge quilt, stay tuned!

Cette année, je me mets au défi de réaliser un beau quilt avec tous les blocs que j'ai accumulés dans un grand sac au fil des années. Essais, carrés en trop, styles vieillot, je n'ai jamais eu le coeur de les jeter, alors je vais en faire quelque chose de positif. Quel défi! J'ai toutes les couleurs, les tissus et les styles de la terre! 
Je vous tiendrai au courant une fois par mois de l'avancée du quilt, alors restez en ligne!

  1. Nothing you make could fail to be beautiful! I'll look forward to seeing what emerges...

  2. I had exactly the same idea the other day...I am also always keeping those blocks and have quite an accumulation of them. Mind you, don't quite have as many as you have got in your picture, hence decided to wait a bit. Looking forward to seeing how your project unfolds.

  3. I love scrappy and eclectic quilts - they have more personality so I think your "bits" quilt will be beautiful. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

  4. That's a great challenge. I have a bin full of extra blocks but they don't seem to fit together. I look forward to seeing how yours comes out.

  5. Great challenge! I am very excited to see what you come up with.

  6. Je me réjouis de voir ce que ça va donner...! :-)

  7. Ça alors!Quelle bonne manière de commencer la nouvelle année!
    Courage! J'en suis sure que tu feras quelque chose de magnifique!

  8. Have fun with your orphan block quilt. I made one last year and still have a couple bins full of orphan blocks and bits. Might be time for another.
