So is anyone thinking about their New Year's Resolutions for 2012? Any Quilting Goals? Any Specific patterns you want to make?
A couple of years ago Catherine challenged us to make 12 tops for Quilts of Valor over the year.... and I took that challenge. It was great. I got to play in my stash, and make something wonderful for our service men and women!!
And I loved the fact that QOV can pair you with a longarmer to quilt the quilt for you! Of course, I am a longarmer so I took the challenge doubly - not only to make but LA it as well.
Does anyone want to take this challenge again? Currently there is a great need for these comforting Quilts, and if we stepped up to the plate - one quilt at a time I bet we could make a dent in the waiting lists!!! What do you think?
Here is some inspiration for quilt patterns:
Persimmon Quilts Mysteries She has 20... count em 20! Quilt of Valor Mystery patterns available, Something should surely strike your fancy!!
A scrappy Rail Fence
There are some great patterns found at Mary's site
And of course - Bonnie's Quiltville Oh - and over here: Patchwork Times
As you can see there is a lot of inspirations all over the web. Any favorite places you have found free patterns?
Remember the minimum size is 55 x 65, and the max 72 x 90.... so 12 lap sized quilts shouldn't be too hard right?
