On my design wall this morning is a little dab of this and a little dab of that.
There are a few blocks from Part 3 of Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll and my first three blocks from the Layer Cake Quilt Along.
So, after the eye candy, I wanted to ask you all...how many of you have joined online quilting bees or groups?
I am part of an online group that is focused on charities this year, A Dozen Quilters. I also belong to Block Lotto, and the Niblets Exchange. All three groups are great to belong to, but I didn't think that I had enough to do (since I'm also starting a local quilt groups, he he he), so I joined a few more groups and we're needing a few more members.
Block Swap Adventure and Let's Bee Together. Both groups are moderated by the ambitious and energetic Linda Gilli and we need a few more participants to round things out. Check out the links and if you're interested, contact her for more information or to sign up.
I know that you're all focused on Christmas and everything, but take a moment if you would to focus on what happens after Christmas (and recovery from Christmas) when you're really going to get motivated to try some new quilty things and make some new quilty friends.
I can't WAIT!
Online Quilting Bees, I think, are a great way to improve your piecing skills because you're naturally going to do your best when you're sending your block off to someone else. We're all people pleasers to a certain extent, aren't we? Sometimes, you can make that work for you!
Make sure you scoot on over to Judy's and find out what everyone else is up to.
Have a great day...off to the County Health Nurse today for flu shots (for me, my hubby and four kiddos...THAT should be fun, lol), then 4-H and Tae Kwon Do. I don't know how you guys do it all! If I have more than one or two outside activities a week, I just about lose my mind! My had is definitely off to you soccer moms!)
Have a quilty day!
