Yes. You read that right. 100 mini quilts. I vow to make 100 mini quilts before January 1,2010. That gives me slightly over a year.Before you hurt yourself trying to do the math,that averages out to about 2 per week......am I nuts you ask? Possibly. Over on the Hittygirls group,they have been discussing the children's book "The One Hundred Dresses". I remember that from my childhood. Then some of the ladies got the idea to make 100 dresses. I jumped on that bandwagon as Hitty dresses are a favorite of mine. Then I stopped to think about all the snaps (I hate sewing snaps)and gathering of the skirts. A couple other group members signed on to make 100 other items. Then someone through out the challenge to make 100 mini quilts. Dang-I can do that! So I quickly jumped ship on the dresses and started to plan my 100 minis.
Firstly,I decided that even though I have probably already made 100 minis,I would start fresh. I kicked around the idea of making them all the same size. I quickly aborted that idea when it became evident how much dang math was involved. SO.....they will all be under 15". I will chart my progress online here. I figure with all the fabric I have,even if I start to repeat the basic designs they will look different,right?
So......I slaved away all morning to finish up the last of my commitments swap-wise. Then I made and quilted my first mini. Tonight I will bind it and post #1 tomorrow.
Now. ......I know sometimes there will be crazy weeks when I can't crank em out. But that is what my summer vacation is for,right? When I have all 100,perhaps I'll write a book,take my trunk show on the road,and become rich and famous. Ha!
Anyone crazy enough to join me? :)
