For the next two weeks, prior to the beginning of the next BIG SURPRISE CHALLENGE, we are giving you free reign to HAVE SOME FUN, while creating mucho squares!
BUT WAIT! Hold your hat! Or should I say; HOLD – THE – HATS!!
We have learned from Ronda and her crew that they have approximately 3 hats for every potential blanket! We have been asked, for the time being, to please focus on squares rather than hats. Might I suggest that, rather than making a hat, you make 3 squares instead?
As you can see from the photos that Ronda provided, they have A LOT of hats!
Lots of hats!
SO, let's work on our fundamental purpose, MAKING SQUARES!!
As always, the greatest need is for plain jane squares! But if you need some inspiration, here are some ideas for you!
Finish your UFOs (unfinished objects!) If you are like me, you probably have a few partially done squares hiding away in your cupboards. This is a great opportunity to finish up all of those squares that were started for a different challenge and never got finished!
Explore your creativity! There are limitless possibilities for exploring your creativity. Color is one of my favorite ways to do that! Where to look? A color wheel can help when trying new colors together!
Fabric can give you some great color combos; I love perusing the fabric store for ideas!
Pump out some major PJs!!! Wouldn’t it be awesome to see stacks and stacks of plain janes?!?! Check out Susan Haines’ stack of 88 squares!
I hope you have some fun with our “Un-challenge”! I can’t wait to see what you create!!
