    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I did this in 2017. I even kept up (won't say I was obsessed...) until mid june, and I looked at all the blocks I'd done and thought no one but a quilter would understand the skill and time that went into these. And there aren't any other quilters in my family so I turned it into wall size and have it hanging where I can see it several times a day. I did mine in brown/yellow/orange. And did it as my first quilt as you go project.

    I did it too. The first year. Well....I started it then. I wish I had done it QAYG like you, Kalama. I still have a few months left to finish up before I can even consider how to quilt it. Mine's all red & white. Lots of red!

    I thnk you're right too, no one but a quilter would understand. Of course, not all quilters get the lure of all those tiny pieces.

    Wow...it looks a bit intimidating but beautiful. I took a break from Bonnie Hunter’s mystery this year because some of these projects take so much of your time. I would love to see one finished but it won’t be mine. LOL
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I did it the first year and thought it was a super great skill builder challenge. Since then, very little intimidates me.

    I did mine scrappy - and loved how it turned out

    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Beautiful quilt but I'm not up to that kind of challenge!

    MacyBaby, every time I see your scrappy version, I fall in love with this quilt all over again!

    I started mine last year, and made it thru April. Between a dead sewing machine and my hand not working right for a few months, I ended up setting it aside. I did download almost all the blocks for the year, though, and it is in my top 3 projects to work on.

    No.
    I've got enough challenges in my life as it is.
    I make quilts that I want to make and at my own pace. I want to enjoy what I do.
