CQJP 2013

The Crazy Quilt Journal Project is going to be run again next year. (CQJP 2013). Many people from all over the world participated this year and it was a great success.

The idea is to complete a crazy block that is at least 6" square every month and post it on the CQJP 2013 blog. You must register to be part of the fun and it is open to everyone from beginners to advanced sewers.

Registration is open now and closes on the 12th December 2012. Click on CQJP 2013 to find the rules and to register.

You do not have to have a blog to participate. I enjoyed being part of CQJP 2012 and it was lovely to see everyone's  block every month. There is  also a Facebook group and I found that one of the most enjoyable parts of the challenge because I met some lovely online friends who would post their photos and talk about their blocks.

I haven't decided if I will take part in 2013 yet. I have a busy teaching schedule next year and I also have 2 new quilts to make that are not crazy quilts. I wanted to start them this year but I couldn't find the time. I also have my Waverley Art Quilters group and I'll be in my second year of my Quilt Valuation training. So much to do and so little time!

Bye for now,

I won't be taking part in the 2013 challenge - I'm still working on the 2012 version! Regret that I won't be taking your summer school class in quilting, as I won't be getting a new sewing machine for Christmas (It was on my wish list, but not on husband's purchase list, lol). If I had, it would have been great to bring to your class. Another time in the future maybe.

Maybe a new machine could be on your birthday list! Keep an eye out for some specials.

As well as your 2 new quilts to make next year, you will have to make your CQJP blocks into a christmas quilt possibly, or are they going to be something else. They were all beautiful, Linda.

You are right Cathie, it's going to take a while to put my Christmas Crazy together. I am actually planning on making another block to try and make them into a quilt.I hope it works out.
