My friend Kathie - "Inspired by Antique Quilts" - and I have talked about doing a project in tandem for years. Over that time we've talked about it, tossed ideas around, but never came to a decision. And then I "left" for two years. I guess it just wasn't time yet.
We've decided that this year is IT. We've chosen a project. She has her pattern, and I'm waiting for mine to arrive. I hope it comes fast enough for us to start the first week of March. We are both using reproduction fabrics, but I'm sure they will still be quite different.
We chose "Stars and Sprigs" by Kim McLean. I've admired Kim's patterns for years, but this is the first one I've purchased. We are going to shoot for one pieced and one applique block per week.
I have a name for my quilt already - "Friends in Tandem". I see many, many inches of tiny bias strips in my near future. I'll have to find my bias bars.
This is going to be so much fun!
