1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........

Just love, love, love the quilts . . .



I have been reading your posts and just so admire the time and effort you have all put into your SKOW quilts - they are absolutely beautiful and a real credit to one and all - congratulations


I felt the whip cracking from Chookyblue (ouch, ouch) but just knew I couldn't deliver, so  unfortunately, I have pulled out of the SKOW as I really bit off more than I could chew this past year.

 

But for me all is not lost as I will be turning my eleven completed blocks into table runner and napkins.  When completed I will post some pics.


Again, congratulations and I look forward to seeing other finished quilts.  Cheers, SuziQ

I look forward to seeing what you create with the blocks you have done. I didn't join up but have found inspiration in what has been posted.
