Welcome aboard the Travelling Pic-Stitch Bloghop!

This is a bloghop you can join! There will be a party with prizes at the end on November 30 2012. There’s a flickr group here if you want to join the fun, even if you’re not an official blogstop.

How to join in

1) Take a photo to start with. Somewhere great.
2) Create a palette from the colours in the photo. (You can do this by eye or you can use something like Degrave’s Color Palette Generator or http://www.play-crafts.com/blog/palette-builder/ – there are a number on the web -or Adobe Ideas for Ipad.)
3) Pick a selection of fabrics which match the photo palette (name it if you like).

4) Choose an English paper pieced block (you can find some inspiration here) and sew it in those fabrics.5) Write a post or flickr post it including the button linked back to here (you can grab the code from the sidebar), as well as the html attached here (will be updated by end of September) to say thanks to the sponsors.

6) Sew along and link up on November 30th!
