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!
So sorry, Lisa. Prayers for strength and healing for all of your challenges right now.
Oh dear Lisa. Prayers and good thoughts coming your way.
Oh dear.....i am so sorry. I hope things improve soon. Please tell Dave i am thinking about him and hoping he is well really soon.
Sorry to hear about your puppy and your husband. Things seem to pile up sometimes. Hope all is well Lisa.
Lisa, so sorry to hear about Dave. I know you have a lot on your plate right now, losing puppy and the wedding just over the horizon. Sending prayers and hugs your way.
Beth, so impressed with all your getting done. I have 5 quilts to get done by Christmas along with various other projects. All the girls got quilts last year and I promised the boys each one this year. One top is finished, one other started and I know what the third one will be. Still looking for easy patterns for the other 2. I think I may have found some, just have to decide. Also working on 2 QOVs block of the month quilts.
I have done it once again and accidentally turned off the emails from my swaps groups. Help, please. I tried several times and have had no luck restoring them.
That is pretty
Love it :)))
Thats beautiful! Love the colors!
Really pretty Jean.
What a happy, colorful quilt, Jean! So pretty!
