 This challenge will have ZERO swapping in it. It is strictly created to try to get some finishes on our swap blocks!  You may join in at any time and you can finish any number of quilts  or other projects you wish in each quarter but the hope is to complete at least one each quarter! 

Here is how it works:

* sign up quarterly. This will prompt you to have accountability!

*make goals!! Be willing to post your goals each quarter and do your best to follow through! 

* choose your blocks for the quarter! It can be blocks we have swapped or even ones you have just had setting around forever! 

* be prepared!  Whether it is scrappy or perfectly chosen have it ready to go. Choose a setting! 

*share ideas to help others move forward! Sometimes the hardest part of this is deciding on a setting. Let's help each other by sharing ideas!

* be prepared to post progress and hopefully pictures if you are able! 

* the main goal is to get all the way to a finished quilt!! Binding and all! Or if you prefer you may use the blocks to complete some other project such as table runners, place settings or bed runners. 

But even if you are only able to get to the quilt top stage at least it's not a pile of blocks!!

             ************** HAVE FUN!! *************

This is the main thing! When it stops being fun you stop making progress! Lets keep it fun. You never know I may add prizes in here at some point!

Great job on this quilt Jean.  On return from “destressing vacation” need to get busy.  

Easy travels then happy sewing, Wilma.

Great layout

Thanks, Lisa and Chris.

Beautiful finish! I want mine to be a quee/king size so I have something very specific in mind. I hope it works out the way I plan. Have to finish Jamestown Landing top first, but I am trying to play with my new (to me) longarm this weekend.

that is absolutely beautiful

Thanks, Mary-Anne.

Anyone else making any progress?  We would all love to see pics to keep us motivated. :))

Keeping you in my prayers, Carla! Hope all goes well! 

Carla, hope all goes well for you and you will be back with us soon.  You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Jean I love the snowmen but especially love that old Singer treadle machine.  What a gem you have.  It brings back a lot of memories.  An Old Aunt in our family had one, did all her sewing on it including a wedding gown.  My oldest son, who is now 57 years old sat on the treadle and rocked and she would tell him faster, slower and stop.  They spent many hours sewing together.  He always wanted to"go sewing with Aunt Fern."

I have fond memories of my grandma’ s, Gail.  My daughter and I found this one in an antique shop.  We were amazed at what good shape it is in, so Cristin bought it.  I t is in our living room because she wanted me to enjoy it too - besides my husband refused to even think about getting itt down the stairs to her part of the house, lol.

WOW- you ladies are amazing!  I'm still working on finishing my little projects.  It's mostly handwork and it takes me longer now than before.  I had hoed the hand surgeries would help more, but I guess I needed more than need thumb joints.  Anyway, the only thing I have finished so far is putting together my blocks for Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts... Here is a photo of the 12 before cutting in half - that was SOOOOOOO hard to do.
