The Desperate Housewife's Quilt as you wish along starts tomorrow

Tomorrow ( 1st July here in Australia) starts the marathon of 50 blocks in 50 weeks. I hope you can all join me as I set the challenge for 50 unique (as unique as one can get with 6 billion people in the world. Maybe somewhere, some one has come up with the same idea - the pressure is on).

This is not a quilt-a-long but a quilt-as-you-wish-a-long where you pick and choose what blocks you like and how you want to use them.

I will be having quest bloggers from week 2 onwards presenting their beautiful 8" finished blocks. In total, we should make it to 100 blocks.

Blocks will be modern, traditional, colourful, neutral, easy, complex, pieced, foundation pieced, straight, curved and dimensional.

So throw on the comfy slippers, grab a beverage and let's get sewing.


  1. ok!!!
    slippers check
    thread and bobbins check
    fabric, cutters, rulers check
    pattern ....
    ready, anytime you are!
    Take care, Leslie

  2. YAY! I am really excited to see what people create.

  3. I'm looking forward to seeing what you will show us!!

  4. 100 blocks times 6 billion people! Now there's a lot of blocks!! It will be a quilt to warn the world! Looking forward to the fn!!
