Rachel (p.s. I quilt) SEPTEMBER (http://www.rachel-griffith.blogspot.com/)
That’s a total of 18 qulters. We’ll be starting in February 2009.
Okay, so how does it work?
Each month one or two of the members (that month’s designer(s) sends me the fabric(s) for their quilt. I ask everyone to send enough fabric for everyone to make a block. (17 blocks) You can have us make a scrappy block using your scraps, or you can send fat quarters to be divided up to make a specific block. You can give vague direction, or detailed. Let your imagination run free! I then distribute the fabrics into envelopes and send them on to the other members, keeping one set of fabric for myself. Members then have until the end of the month to create a block that fits in the design idea of the designing member for that month and send it back to me. I gather all the blocks together and send them to the designing member who sews them into a quilt, or whatever project they’d like to make.
How big are your blocks?
Everyone creates a 12.5″x12.5″ block so that it will finish to 12″x12″ when sewn together.
