    The idea of the challenge is to do a new project for this year. Since you have done such a great larger project maybe you want to join us by making something small like placemats or pot holders or a mini quilt or ???

    Thank you, I will try but I don't know if I'll get one finished in time. I have one quilt on the frame right now, another that needs to be completed that got bumped so this one could get finished, and then another when those are done that is waiting to be quilted. Where does the time go?
    Oh well, maybe I can at least inspire.... I have another that was also done awhile back and it hangs in our local library. They are very kind in offering me a space to showcase my work. Here are some pics...

    Does a Queen's Diamond Jubilee quilt count? I'm just finishing drawing the pattern, all the material is washed and ironed, and I hope to start sewing next week. There is no way it will be finished by the beginning of July, but the Jubilee lasts all year so I'm going to relax a bit..

    Peggy - your double flag quilt is fantastic.

    Muv - Queen's Diamond Jubilee sounds fantastic to me, especially since she is Canada's Queen as well. Yes, it is definitely a celebration of country. I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern and progress.

    QuiltE - Monty is adorable. Please do him first. I really like your Canada fabric. We may have to do some swapping at the end of this.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    Absolutely, Muv!!!!! ... and please do show us the beginnings. Perhaps your drawing? and fabric assortment? I'm really interested as to what you have planned and will look forward to seeing WIP pics, too. Me? a mini-Royalist ... I've always been intrigued by all things Royal, and have been picking up a few things lately, to honour her Diamond Jubilee ... a china mug, small plate, and a 1953 calendar with her Coronation photo.

    Works4Me ... Of course when I saw him, he just had to follow me home. Sharing, yes, once we both know what we have as surplus!

    Count me in. I'm planning on doing a patriotic quilt to hang from my deck for Memorial day and July 4th.

    I have a UFO that I started some time ago in solid primary colors. It is a very long table runner for my dining room table. I put it aside because it seemed too blah and I couldn't think how to perk it up. Perhaps this challenge is just the thing to bring it back to life. Wish me luck with creativity, I'll need it!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
