 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 Ladies! I finished the Diamonds Jubilee Bargello. It is all bound and waiting to be washed now. Here it is. I will post additional photos on the main page if you want to see the back and other details.

Chris, this is a wonderful quilt, I love the colors.  I have always wanted to tackle  a bargello, but haven't done one yet.  Maybe this will inspire me to finally give it a shot.

Thank you Kathy. I have made several bargellos. I really like the dramatic look of them when they are completed, even though I really don't enjoy sewing strip sets.

Wow!!@! What great colors. Such a fun quilt!

Thanks Carla. I am pretty happy with the finished product.

What a great job on this quilt.  I love the colors.

Thank you Wilma. As I was preparing the pieces I wasn't sure about my color selection and placement but I am happy with the finished results.


WOW!  Love the pattern, color choices, everything about this.  Great job.  I love the red/pink combo.  MANY little pieces!  You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!

I want to finish my Latimer Farms by the end of this quarter. Then I want to finish the green bargello, On Ringo Lake and quilt the rest of my Glacier Star and my quilt and finish Wedding Star.

Is this your 3rd quarter goals Chris?

Yes they are Carla.This seems a bit ambitious to me but-- go big or go home!
