I've been thinking a lot about a comment that Tazzie made the other day. One line in particular stood out: "I'm longing to make some freeform letters and teacups, but I'm scared to take the leap."
I have a challenge for Tazzie and anyone else out there who has thought the same. I've come up with a project that should be fun, easy, and fairly quick. I will make it with you, I will do my best to come up with the clearest instructions possible, and if you get in any kind of jam I will talk you through it.
We're going to make a baby quilt for the charity of your choice (there are some great ones out there but I don't have time at the moment to go cruising for links). This way you're not trying to make something that will fit in with your decor, or that has to please the taste of anyone you know. If your letters don't look like letters, it won't matters. Babies aren't fussy - they just need warmth.
Anyone in? You don't have to have a blog to play. You can leave a comment or email me.
