The two I'm going to mention here are both new; neither of the bloggers has had a linky party before (well, that's my understanding anyway).
Both are quilt related, which is not surprising since knitters are so well catered for by the wonderful site known as Ravelry. There we can find all sorts of knit-alongs, groups to join, etc. that those things are rarely seen on blogs these days.
So, back to the two linky parties that have caught my attention this past week.
The first goes by the rather curious title of "Relaxing Robin" so I just had to check I to out. I've always wanted to join a "round robin" but I use chain store fabrics and many of the "robins" want quilt store fabrics only. Also, since I still comsider myself a beginner, I'm never quite sure if my skills are up to the task.
Dawn, at sewyouquilt2, has come up with a novel idea -- a "relaxing robin" where the work never leaves home. Instead, each month, Dawn posts instructions and quilters add to their work. It starts with an abandoned block and builds from there. Of course, if you didn't have an abandoned block, you could always try a new technique to make a block (and link it to my "Something Old, Something New party, LOL)
Dawn has not actually set up a linky party; you can read more about her idea here.
The other linky party I'm considering has to do with those shelves full of quilt books we all have! Sharon, at Vrooman Quilts, is challenging us to make a quilt from one (or more) of those books. I left a comment that I have never made a quilt from a pattern and that's okay, says Sharon, we can work on a quilt inspired by a pattern in a book! Here's the link to Sharon's blog post and below is Sharon's fabulous button (which, as yet, doesn't have a grab code).
