I am lucky to be involved in twelve square: Twelve women make twelve quilts in twelve months in a virtual quilting bee.
Each month a different quilter mails out fabric to the other members of the quilting bee. Everyone makes a quilt square using that fabric and fabric from their stash, according to some specification, but also bringing their own unique voice to the square. The squares are mailed back to the originator and they have the makings for a full quilt!
You know, anyone can start one of these. Just round up twelve people. Or six, and make two squares each. It really is such a wonderful concept.
I was completely unsure what I wanted to do for my square until I read Larissa's post. Her tutorial was wonderful.
My month was January. So, I am lucky enough to have received all my squares for a quilt that will be for Libby. I can't wait to show you what the others made. Pretty amazing.
I noticed this morning that Sarah is holding a contest. If you have any desire to knit lace this is your chance. She is giving away yarn and a lace pattern of your choice.
Happy Friday to you.
