    I'd love to join but if there's a bright shiney object or new quilt technique that catches my eye I'm outta here. You can only imagine my stack of UFO's. Oldest is a handquilted queen size that is 85% done from 1989. Get the picture? LOL Have fun!
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Cw progress

    It has been a while since I have updated. I have 11 out of 36 (units) complete and together. This has been hibernating for a while being I had a couple of other projects that had to take priority. I am having second thoughts on how I did things. I have only tacked my corners of the windows and did not go all the way through. With that said, now I am questioning durability. (visualizing something getting caught in the "pockets" and pulling them loose). As much as it makes me cringe to have to go back, I am considering going over the windows to go all the way through. On a positive note, I do have all of the base squares cut to complete the whole King size. Wished I could say I had them all folded and ironed, lol.

    I will join in!! I started one 5 years ago, when i won a trip to fly to Florida to the Daytona 500 and wanted a hand sewing project to take along with me.

    My colored squares are from a lot of my guild friends, although I am not bothered if there is a duplicate or 2. In the end, mine will be queen size.

    I would look for a really lightweight shirting denim. The combination of folds etc. would make heavier denim unworkable in MHO (my humble opinion)
