Me. I am.
Because I don't like to do these things on my own, I'm going to strongly encourage you to hang out with me. Ok?
We're going to start on June 1st. This gives you enough time to decide which fabrics you want to use, and to get your chickens in order.
You will need -
the impromptu pattern by Rachel Griffiths. Available here.
1 layer cake (there's a ton of them at Fat Quarter Shop) or use 42 10" squares cut from your stash (I'm tryig to decide whether to do that or use a layer cake - I just can't decide)
6.5 yards of a solid/background fabric
the usual quilting supplies (rotary cutter, mat etc)
y'all up for it?
It's a fun and simple pattern and it makes a BIG quilt. I'm going to bet that most of you have quilts that sit on the couch, on the kids' beds, in the dog bed (or is that just me?), and you might not have a quilt that actually fits on your bed. I have quilts that ALMOST fit my bed, they do the job, but it'd be nice to have one that actually fits properly. This little baby is just the ticket. It ends up at 90.5" square. I'm going to have a little chat with some of my sponsors and see if we can get some prizes and stuff to encourage you along the journey.
There's a flickr group, so go join that right now and start thinking about fabrics.
