After seeing the group participation in virtual quilting bees here, here, and here, I decided that I'd like to participate in one too. It looks like so much fun that I decided to come up with one myself. Just call me a big ole copy cat. I emailed 11 fabulous blogging buddies and asked if they'd like to play along. Thankfully, they did. So, twelve by twelve was born. I can't take credit for the clever name, that was Tracy. Isn't it great? Twelve of us each making twelve blocks over twelve months - too perfect. The participants are me, Tracy, Autum, Chris, Sarah, Jessica, Jade, Katie, Kathryn, Jona, Melissa, and Kristena.
I decided to take the first month, and as you can see, I'm a little late. Sorry ladies! I really wanted them to all have the fabric at least a week ago, but I lost track of time. How can it be the second month of October already? All the packages are out of my house and on their way. Thankfully, this will be a laid back gig, so being a little late is no big deal, right? I told then that I wanted stripes. I sent off a piece of fabric from Amy Butler's Ginger Bliss collection along with another print. I can't wait to see what they come up with! I'm very much looking forward to this year long adventure. Thanks girls for doing this with me!!
Oh, I got my sewing machine back the other day. Um, it wasn't broken at all. Turns out that it wasn't threaded correctly, Yeah, I feel stupid! I promise, I usually check for that sort of thing, but I assumed that because I just got it back that it was broken again. I was so embarrassed!!!
