New Year Projects

I've just launched two new projects for the start of a new year.
The first is a Fabric Postcards swap.  We all enjoyed the fabric postcards we made last year and for spring/Easter we're going to make cards with the theme  "Spring Green".  It will be fun to see how we all interpret the theme.  We'll post them out by 1st March and I'll share my set here when they arrive.

Our second project starting now is a Landscape Quilt Challenge.  This is not a swap but a challenge to make a quilt for ourselves but to share the thoughts, processes and the final outcome with the Global Piecers and on this blog.   Participants will email regular reports and photos to me which I'll upload to the blog for us all to see and comment on.  We might also get thoughts and encouragement from non-GPers (I'll put a link on my quilting blog).  In fact this challenge can be opened to non-GPers, we'd love to share as much quilty work with you as possible.  Comment below to be included, I'll email you the "deadlines and details".
We'll start by sharing a photograph of a landscape, by the end of January.  The photo will be the inspiration for our quilt.
I remember Alex Anderson did a landscape challenge on "Simply Quilts" and the results (all from the same photograph) were amazing.  Some of the results are here and here if you'd like a look. I couldn't make the video work but it's on if you'd like to try.
Looking forward to seeing all the inspiration - as soon as you like, you don't have to wait for the end of the month to email me your photo.
