The program by Marcy will be
"Consider a Quilt Challenge Group"
For the past 10 years, I have participated in a quilters’ challenge group. The last 2 years we’ve been doing charity quilts. The numbers of participants has varied from 5 – 7. Organically, the group works like any other group – sometimes it works for people, sometimes not, and we give each other grace a lot of the time! But here’s the thing, I originally asked if I could join the group after seeing 1 or 2 quilts that they had already produced. What I saw for myself was the possibility of real growth beyond projects I might choose on my own. Also, the closest anyone in the group lived was approximately 2 hours away, a “safe distance” – no one would see me fumble around, while I “tried on” different ideas! Depending on your desire to try something new, get out of a rut, or wake yourself up with a deadline, a challenge group can really help and provide so much more in the way of inspiration and friendships!!!!
Marcy will be sharing a lot of ideas and quilts.
Please bring quilts you have made with a Quilt Challenge Group (Round Robin style, etc.) to inspire and encourage others.
