A new Challenge!

I am so excited! I belong to a group on Yahoo, that teaches classes in quilting.
This group does traditional and non traditional. Lots of great classes, lots of great teachers.
ANYWAY, the lady that started this group, decided we needed to do art quilt challenges!
She posted if anyone was interested, and within less then 24 hours, 20 ladies had signed up!! I was one of those lucky few.
The ideas are in, and am just waiting to find out what our theme is. Diane numbered all the choices, and I picked the number. So as soon as Diane gets my email with the number in, we will all find out what our first challenge is.
The only restrictions are, it must be 75% fabric. That is IT!!
We are going to do one challenge every four months. So be ready for some great art!
We will have a blog with our work on it, and I will post that as soon as Shirley gets it up and running.
So wish me good luck in my Adventure in Art Quilts!!

That sounds like so much fun. I wouldn't mind trying a challenge like that sometime in the future and can't wait to see what you create.

I am so glad you managed to get into the challenge!
I am looking forward to our first challenge and
it should be a lot of fun. The fun part is starting and then just going with the flow - at least that is what I plan on doing.

My head has been spinning since I heard what the challenge is (I will let you tell your visitors) and there are lots of ideas going back and forth in my brain.

One thing we have until May l5 to get it done so
I am going to think about it and possibly start one soon. Who knows I might end up doing two! So glad you are in the group. Shirley
