Quilter’s by the Sea Quilt Guild has a new challenge for 2012.

Just Do It, Quilter!

Jump in with Both Feet is a quilt from scratch; a kit you bought some time ago, fabric you have loved or a pattern or technique you have wanted to try.

Do Your Part.  If you make a charity or auction quilt, you will receive double raffle tickets!

In Your Closet.  This one is a true UFO that has been started, waiting to be finished.

QBS Workshop.  If you finish a quilt from a 2012 QBS workshop, you will receive double raffle tickets!

This is what I’m doing for Jump in with Both Feet.  I bought this Gee’s Bend quilt kit after thinking about getting one for a couple of years.  I would pick one up, and put it back down at several shops.  After all, I could come up with something on my own close to it.  But, I really wanted one of these women's quilt designs.  Finally last fall I had a 25% off coupon for a local shop; and guess what, they had these Gee’s Bend quilt kits.  It was a no brainer at that point.  I got the top done.  Yes, it was quick, easy and most of all, fun.

I also think it will be fun to quilt.  Maybe lots of interesting straight lines.

Quilt happy,

I love that quilt! It reminds me of a Mondrian painting - Piet Mondrian - a Dutch artist.
