Old Red Barn Co. Sew-a-Long Round 4

Hello everyone! I just wanted you all to know about the next round in the Old Red Barn Quilt Along group over on flickr. We have had three rounds so far with the following quilts and leaders:

Round 3: Wonky Log Cabins- John, Quilt Dad
Round 2: Zig-zags - Amy, Park City Girl
Round 1: Rails - Dana Old Red Barn Co.

I have volunteered to lead round four. But we haven't decided what type of block we want to try next. So, hop over to the discussion thread and chime in if you have a preference. And join us in the fun. I promise it will be worth it. I will be having giveaways during the round so you will want to keep an eye on the discussion threads in the flickr group and my posts here :)

Here are some of the current suggestions for what block we might do:

Circles: Pieced and applique

Close Up of Finished Top

Crazy nine-patch:
Crazy 9 Patch Quilt

or disappearing nine patch.

spider or string

Just so you know we can easily incorporate the circles into one of these other blocks like I did for this quilt:
Doll Quit Swap 7 Possibility

hey there! i just discovered your blog while researching for a fiber project i'm doing at my college. i'm trying to make a quilt using an image of trees and i want it to be pretty modern. i'm not going to be using uniform piecing, etc. i came across your sunrise quilt and i was just wondering if you did a lot of applique on it, i'm not a huge fan of applique and it would take longer than i have for the project. the shapes that i'll be using will probably be curved and free flowing. do you have any suggestions for a novice quilter? i've done some quilting but nothing so complicated as this. my mom is a very traditional quilter so she's not much help on my current project. thanks for any suggestions!

wow! thanks so much! that was way more than i expected!

p.s. i guess google is very good at protecting privacy because i couldn't find your email either, that's why i left the first comment here! thanks again!
