    My newest project though is a 365 Day Quilt project, you basically journal on one block a day for 365 days, then sew it all up into a quilt. I am blogging about my journey here: http://scrapendipitydesigns.blogspot.com/ if anyone wants to see my take on this project.

    Has anyone tried this crazy project? Or does anyone want to? I think it makes it easier to stay committed to this type of thing if you have others with you pushing you along!

    Thanks for the great community here!!

    Cheers!

    Thanks again everyone!! I am having fun so far. I only have 4 blocks done and will be writing my 5th tonight, but so far so good!! :) I posted some more details on my pattern on the blog as well as some ides for journaling if anyone wants to try this but is intimidating by the writing aspect.

    Cheers!

    Rachel,
    Thanks so much for this. I have started to cut squares for it.
    I am not a great blogger by any sense of the word(I just started a blog not too long ago and that is as far as it got) Perhaps this will get my blogging up too lol
    Thank you again!
    Hugs

    Yay I am so excited!! If you use flickr, you could share your pics in our group there. It's a tad bit easier to use then a blog :) Not as big a commitment!! LOL I should know I currently have 3!

    Can't wait to see your fabric choices!

    Rachel, I am enjoying watching your progress, but will have to put this idea on the back burner for myself. I am currently working on an anniversary quilt (with photos) for my parent's 66th, and finishing a quilt for my DD's choir trips.

    I really like your choices for the sky. The batiks are a great choice, for all the motion in them. It will keep the quilt from appearing 'flat'.
