New Project for 2011.......who's going to join me?

Hello and Happy New Year!  Normally I would be asking for volunteer's to help with a Block Party Project for cancer this year....but, Quilts for a Cause, Inc. asked me to design a quilt which would be made into a pattern to sell this year.   It should be coming out very soon and I can't wait to share where and how you can order it.  You've seen the quilt Carol Crago and I worked on.......so stay tuned for the how and where you can order the pattern and help out a cause that is so near and dear to all of our hearts.

Now, it's the beginning of a new year and I just know we can all help with another project.  The American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine is still working on their 1 million pillowcase challenge.  Although I'm not a quilt shop....I'd like to be a part of making their goal come true....so, who's with me?  The pillow cases we make can be donated to local charities (you don't have to send them to me)  and I'm thinking that for me I'm going to donate what I make to a local woman's shelter and/or nursing homes in my area.  

The bottom line is that when you've made the pillow cases and they are delivered, I'll need a total of what you make so I can turn in the number to the American Patchwork site. (I know each person can go to their site and add their own, but I'd like to do this as a group)  I've also added a button to the left of your screen so you can read more about this; you can download which pillow case pattern you'd like too. 

The cut off date to sign up will be January 15th........please let me know if you'll be joining me for our first project of 2011.
