Oct 31st - All wall hangings that are posted as pics will be entered
into the drawing
If posting a picture is a problem for you let me know and I will help
Nov 1st - I will draw names and addresses and send each quilter
the address they will send their wall hanging to.
Please Post Pics of: Not required but this would be great if you can
Your Fabric you are going to use or thinking of using
Embellishments you are using
Progress pictures would be nice!!
Each month post a pic of the quilt block you made
You can post pictures of the quilt blocks you are thinking of doing also
I would like to see some sharing of ideas and conversation along the way!!
That is the really fun part!!
Prewashing or not is up to you
Just post on the thread if you are willing to enter a wall hanging.
There will be no end to the sign up.
If anyone wants to catch up and send in a wall hanging by Oct 31st that is fine with me.
Size and Type of Quilt Block:
A wall hanging should be smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
You can use any type of quilt block and any style any colors.
Ebellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like
Layout and Quilting Your Wall Hanging:
You can put your top together any way you want to. You can add more blocks
the same size or smaller or anything you like.
Setting design can be as simple as sewing your quilt blocks together or adding
sashing between blocks or you can use your creativity and make up anything
you can dream up.
You can quilt it or tie it or any method you want to use.
If you have anyone else quilt it please remember to give credit where it is due.
I hope you decide to join us and have a lot of fun!!
