2010 Challenge - Quilting Journal

Inspired by the "letter from our readers" posting in the Oct/Nov 2009 Quilting Arts magazine, I have decided to take up the challenge as Amelia Bacon did, and create a 5" quilt block each week during 2010 and journal about it. Extra inspiration, of course, goes to the movie "Julie & Julia" for getting me back to this blog I created so many months ago and to keep it going by using this site for my weekly journal entries and photos of completed quilt blocks.

So, my first block must be completed by Sunday, January 10th. I have decided my weeks will be Monday-Sunday, that way I have a full weekend in tact for each week to work on my projects.

Is there anyone out there that wants to take up this challenge with me? I'd love to link to your postings as well so that we can motivate and inspire one another to keep on quilting and journaling about it!


  1. Leslie,
    Check the Quilting Gallery site next weekend .. I will announcing a very similar challenge.


  2. I really like this idea but not sure I can commit to it weekly with my schedule. Is it design and complete one or just sew one up?

  3. It's whatever you want it to be! Any 5" quilt block that represents your mood, what is going on in your life, etc. for that week. And then journal about it, and at the end of the year, find a creative way to display it. I wish I could post a link to where I got the idea, but I looked online and couldn't find the article.
