    This is the first quilt challenge I ever have joined, and I am excited but a little overwhelmed. However, I plan to have a “quiet day” over the weekend to try to make sense of everything. See y’all on Monday.

    I’m excited to try this.
    I’m using black for the green fabric in the quilt. The rest I’m using the same as sample.

    I signed up for this on 25 August and have received nothing. I had to come the the NQC site to get weeks 1 and 2. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Looking forward to the challenge of measuring correctly, as I have eyesight issues. I’ll give it a go!

    so excited to start this pattern. A dear friend whom I have known most of my life lives in New Mexico. He asked what did i do with all the quilts i have made. I said i give them to those I love. as I realized I have never made him one. He said I don’t have one. So i got to thinking what would I do special for him and his significant other. this pattern will be perfect. He loves turquoise so i definitely will put some in it. Now on to looing through my room of stash. 🙂 or running to the quilt shop.
