Another Challenge!

Hello everyone, I do hope that you are all having a wonderful week.
I'm sorry to tempt you all with another challenge.....but here I go anyway.....
maybe you could combine this with the Shirt challenge that I have listed here...The Great Shirt Challenge
 My dear friend Tania from Ollie&T is running this fab idea.
We choose a quilt out of the above book that we want to make,
but it must be kept secret…..

The quilt is to be made over a period of 12 months, with the ‘big unveiling’ in June next year – perhaps a tentative date for the unveiling could be
Saturday 20 June 2015?

I thought this was a good book to use, as they are actually pretty much basic quilts made with basic shapes, and for most of them there is no great level of difficulty for those that don’t have so much experience with piecing.

I also think the quilts in the book lend themselves to being made in any style of fabric, and can be made to a size that suits you.

The idea for this came from a blog I was recently reading by Kim, a lovely and fun lady who writes the Threadheads Unite blog (www.threadheadsunite.blogspot.com).  

And of course, if you want to invite someone else to join in who you think would enjoy our quilt-along, by all means, the more the merrier! Perhaps Kim would like to join us too?  Don’t hesitate to invite any online friends….. we could also have a ‘cyber unveiling’ on the same date!

So, what do you think?

Are you in?
