Ethne of Flaming Stitches is organising a Quilt Along using the art of Charley Harper as inspiration. Now, I have to admit that I had never heard of him, but a quick google search revealed that he was an amazing artist. The quilt along is just a fun, personal challenge, to create a quilt block using whichever technique you like, that can be used for a quilt, wallhanging, cushion, mug rug or whatever. Now that I am currently in-between swaps and have no other projects on the go I thought this sounded like a great little project to focus on and maybe challenge myself a little too. There is more info on Ethne's blog and she has set up a Flickr group here so, if you'd like to play along too, do pop over and join in. I have no idea yet what I'm going to do, but I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
