There are some projects that are more fun if there is a "support group" you can fall back on. Over the past couple years, I've heard a lot of people talking about wanting to make Sylvia's Bridal Sampler but haven't taken the leap and made the commitment.
Here's where I come in.
I would like to do a quilt along through this blog. Not sure exactly how it will work yet, but here's what I'm thinking:
Set amount of blocks each month (6-10?). Quarterly sew days at the Calico Hutch to get together and see every one's pretty blocks and catch up on sewing blocks...maybe with a pot luck. There would be kits (prob just fat groups) available a few times throughout the year to break up the expense (30 when you start, 30 a couple months later, 30 a little after that...you get the picture.) And of course, I would have a place on this blog for participants to post pictures of their progress and also ask questions/help each other. I figure, 140 - 6" blocks are easier to complete if you're doing it as a group! Also, if you're not comfortable with some of the methods, there is nothing saying you "have" to do ALL the blocks! However, this may be a really good way to learn new things!
So, is this something that interests you?
What are some of you're thoughts?
PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS!!!
I know of some other groups that have done things like this with success!
