Greek Facebook Quilt Along - house quilt

On Facebook there is a closed group, called "The Neighbourhood" who organized a Quilt Along (QAL). Every participant is supposed to sew 3 house quilt blocks every month and send the blocks to other members. January 2016 we will each have 36 houses!!! And the whole group will have 36 house quilts!!
This is going to be fun.....and a hell of a lot of work!

These are the first 3 blocks I made and sent away.




The group has all different kind of quilters, from beginners to very experienced ones. The fun is just to enjoy the creativity of every member.  I am sure that I will have  a beautiful, one of a kind, very expressive quilt in the end.
It is also good a exercise for me. I can try out a lot of different techniques on a small piece. So, at the end of the year I will have made a big progress in my patchwork, applique abilities.... at least I hope so!!!

The blocks below are the first three of my quilt, made by:


Nada Xenou-Kokoletsi


Mary Anargyrou


Olga Spitalioraki-Kiritsi

It's the first of February today, so it is time to start the next 3 blocks.

Wat een ontzettend leuk idee, Ada!
Als ik het goed begrijp heb je aan het eind van het jaar een quilt dat door anderen is gemaakt.
Het quiltje wat ik van jou gekregen heb gebruik ik op dit moment als een dekje op mijn laptop als het deksel dicht is.
Veel te jammer om alleen met kerst te gebruiken. Ik geniet van de kleuren! En geloof, hoop en vrede kunnen we op dit moment wel goed gebruiken.

Heel veel liefs, Gerry

These are great!
You could also make a baby soft book with 4 or 5 of those, if you attach them together. It would be great :)
