It's all Andrea's fault!

Last year I saw a quilt on Andrea's blog (Welsh Quilter) and thought the block looked like a fun one to play with. So I made a mini quilt (put on sunglasses and click here to view) with 3" blocks and had so much fun that I decided to share this block idea with my mini quilt group. This week they brought in their quilts made in January using Andrea's block and here is the wonderful outcome! The photos should enlarge when you click on them (if I downloaded them correctly!). What an amazine variety of fabrics and colours!
Almost everyone found that the "on pointe" layout was a bit (or a lot!) of a challenge, but the results were worth all the work! I think this project resulted in the most finished quilts and tops so far!
Carol made her own unique version of the layout, which she called "a mistake" but we called it "creative license"!
See what happens when one quilter inspires another...thanks Andrea!

Isn't it wonderful how quilter can interpret a pattern and make it her own. Love the show and tell *s*

These look like so much fun, though I don't know if I could do minis like this. Are these the size of the original, 12" x 18" or so? I just don't know how you work with those tiny pieces.

I can't think of anything more exciting than getting a bunch of quilts of the same pattern and seeing how a bunch of friends have expressed themselves! This is a
FANTASTIC idea. I wonder if I can get my group to do something similar!

How nice to see all those different quilts, made with the same block.
