The quilt that started it all...
This past summer I joined a quilt along hosted by Dana (oldredbarnco). It began on a whim after reading this post by Amanda Jean (crazymomquilts). The whole process was so satisfying. I met some really amazing people and learned a lot. As I paced waiting for my first quilt to come out of the dryer I knew I was hooked. I couldn't wait to see its crinkly softness. I really couldn't believe I did it. It was a community effort. There is so much camaraderie, inspiration, passion, generosity, and experience wrapped up in this group. Amazing!
The original group has grown to almost 1000 members and we have just completed our third round. Next up is a circle quilt and I can't wait.
