 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!

Me too!

It was a free pattern from this site - which is a good one for charity quilts........http://www.handcraftingwithlove.net/quilt/pat-big-star.html

That's. Awesome Mary Anne!! Wonderful cause as well. 

nice, Mary-Anne.  I have gotten a two done for cancer patients at one of the local hospitals.

Very pretty and someone will really get good use out of them.  They will feel the love.

Thanks, Carla, but I think I need to just keep hopping from project to project right now ... so I am skipping this quarter.

O.k. Jean. :)

heck still working on first and second and a whole pile of things in between LOL.......but we'll get er done!  My snowmen runners are all put together and just have to baste and quilt them...my rooster quilt is put together - needs backing which I can't find - i want the stuff that looks like chicken wire and will hopefully find some on holidays this week and I have another one done - just gott quilt it.........picks will come in august when i get them done.

Finished all the blocks for the Latimer Farms quilt and have them laid out in the correct order here. Now I need to add a 1 1/2 inch black sashing with corner stones around every block...ugh. Then there is another sashing with star points and then two borders. Why do I do this to myself?

Wow!! Thats a lot of pieces! Beautiful though!


Because you make beautiful creations!
