I received an email a couple of weeks ago from two creative ladies asking me to consider being a participant in a virtual quilting bee. I've been keeping tabs on the virtual quilting bee going on with Kathy and AmandaJean, MamaUrchin et al and the wonderful blocks they've been creating. I read the email a second time...I couldn't believe they were asking me! I didn't take me seconds to hit the reply button! Melissa and Rebekah are the brains behind this venture! Thanks ladies!
It's all come together now. Our group is "Common Threads." We have a blog (check out that cute button and link in the sidebar) and a flickr group and it looks like we will start May 15th. How exciting is that!!! We'll be working together for the next year. It's going to be so much fun. I'm thrilled to be a part of this, but a bit nervous too. With talented folks like this, I want to do a good job for them and make them something they will love. Head over to the Common Threads blog. There are links to the blogs of the other 12 talented ladies. You should definitely check them out.
As for my work on UFO week, I'm making progress. I basted the Whirlygiggles quilt, finished piecing the two Zig Zag pillow shams that match the Zig Zag quilt. I've also finished quilting both of those. I hope to have those shams done tonight and on the bed and I'm going to start machine quilting the Whirlygiggles quilt too. Pictures tomorrow!
