munki munki quilt along

Last week Heather and I started a new flickr group, The Munki Munki Quilt Along! Both Heather and I had been talking for awhile about starting a Munki Munki Quilt, but how much more fun it sounded to have all our wonderful friends on flickr to quilt along with us! Once the idea came, we started it right away. We are already up to over 60 members!! If you haven't joined we would love to have you.

For the quilt along, we've kept it really simple. It officially starts in October, to give everyone some time to get their munki stashes ready. Everyone chooses their own style, size, colors, and pattern, and we quilt one block a month. We are also having a 5 inch charm swap to help acquire more variety in our stashes. This will simply just be fun, fun, fun!!

Heather and I seem to think alike; right away we went to making some blocks so there would be some examples in the photo pool. Our first ones used a lot of the same fabrics. :) It is so fun to have such a close friend to be able to talk to everyday about our passion and love for yummy fabrics and quilting!!

Everyone is welcome to start posting pictures of finished blocks or any handmade item made with the Munki Munki fabrics!! The more inspiration the better!

Heather and I's first blocks! See how we pieced the little blue gnome on the left!! I love it!!

After working on Ariels spiderweb block, I've been itching to make one with such bright and cheery colors, and this was the perfect quilt for it!! It will be going in my new studio on our comfy chair. I can't wait to also start working on some coordinating mini quilts to hang on the wall. I will have such a happy studio with these fun colors and fabrics!!

I hope everyone has a super spectacular week!
