"CELEBRATE SPRING" CHALLENGE


After I "met" Nicole via blogging I noticed that she and I have a very, very similar style in quilting. I had a silly thought that I eventually shared with her. Wouldn't it be fun to use the same fat quarter bundle and make a quilt - giving each other sneak peeks during the process. She was crazy about my silly idea and we settled on a fat quarter bundle - Celebrate Spring by Sandy Gervais for Moda. Here's a peek at the fabric we're using; check back every Monday for a sneak peek at our project. Our plan is to unveil our "flimsies" on May 31.
Note: I'm a bit behind in responding to e-mails and such - my computer has been down since yesterday afternoon. Bear with me and I'll get back to you later today. Must work now.
