OPP: Other People's Patterns

I'll be honest, usually I'm so busy working on MY next thing that I don't make the time to test or buy OPP.

While I am still busy and making good use of my time advancing my own patterns, projects and tutorials, I've been having the BEST time following along with Eye Candy Quilts's Smorgasblocks quilt-a-long. Here's how my blocks are starting:

Anneliese of Eye Candy Quilts has pulled the best of FREE blocks from around the web to combine into this one quilt (being revealed week by week). My No Y Seam Feathered Star was the first block, the X blocks called Raspberry Kiss blocks from Wooden Spoon Quilts were second, and third were the Spinning Pyramid blocks designed by Jessee Maloney aka Art School Dropout for Robert Kaufmann! 

To see what's coming up next, you need to follow the Eye Candy Quilts blog or Instagram feed @eyecandyquilts!

Amazing maker Richy Jr. from SpazzyCat Designs is also participating in the Smorgasblocks QAL with this start (his photo):

I can't tell you how much I love the dark background and seeing this kind of creativity applied to my pattern! I can't wait to see his pyramids. Follow him on Instagram to see more (@richyjr16).

That's all for now. OPP are fun and this has been a good mental break for me: to make instead of design/write/figure out. :)
