    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone every been involved in a group quilt? Our committee is working on a diversity quilt. There will be 4 panels about 3 ft wide and 4 ft high.

    In this panel there will be squares, about 8 inches all around (finished size). We would like to distribute material and instructions to have departments make their own square. How do we instruct the people that have never quilted?

    Any input would be appreciated! Thanks, Debbie

    We just did one here on the board, it's call "virtual farm quilt" look it up on the search at the top of the board. We did an awesome job on it, when the quilting is completed on it we're going to donate it to be auctioned for breast cancer research. tcharlie did a great job organizing this group effort, PM her and ask her help in organizing your group project. Enjoy your project :) :) :)
