Recently I found out about a fun quilt-along/build your quilting skill set Sampler-A-Thon. Ok, that's my name. It's actually called the "We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler", and it's being organized by Leila (someone participating in my Japanese Import Charm Swap.)
I'm intrigued, as I'm not well-versed in quilting . . . though perhaps I've tricked you all in to thinking I might be. Should be fun to participate and work through some new techniques or brush up on some old ones. If you participate the whole way through you should end up with enough squares to make a queen sized quilt! Wowza.
