Wildly Waiting -- see examples!

While waiting for our challenge to start, I finally made it over to the original quilt challenge collaborative gallery and blog and, believe me, all our members need to take a look if they haven't already. This is a fabulous collection of quilts and a fabulous example of what we could accomplish. The group even has a publication deal with Lark for their collection of quilts!

Take a look here, and let me know what you think. And look, too, at how the blog is used as a place of collecting inspirations in process. The group actually has two sites, one the blog and one a gallery site. I's prefer to keep it simple as we start with one, but after we get going, I could set up a hosted gallery website with the final quilts.

Although we don't reveal the final work until the work is done, it's cool to see how their blog was used to post images of inspiration, materials, techniques and more. A great way to share the journey.


  1. Yes, the 12 by 12 group has done a terrific job and I think they set a good example. I agree that -- someday -- it would be nice to have a blog and a gallery. I'm so excited to be a part of this!

  2. very inspirational, I especially am inspired by their theme choices. I'm already starting to think of my theme choice!

  3. Thanks, Susie!! We we huge thanks to Brenda who has done all of our online stuff.

  4. Hi there! I just found your blog via another challenge group 12 Connected and it's great to see the work from your first challenge. One tool that you might like to consider is add theme and artist "labels" to your posts so that readers can, for example, quickly locate all your "Wall" quilts or all quilts by "Gwen" and so on. I know this tool has proven useful on the Twelve by Twelve blog particularly as we gather more and more themes and quilts:-)
