As you know I don't like snow and I have a ton on my quilting plate already but I'll be watching. Have fun.

I want to play...
I have never done a quilt along from the start... but one of my 60+ birthdays is Sept. 3 and I am going to think of this as a BD gift to me...So o I need to sigh up somewhere so I make sure I don't miss something?

Sounds like fun but I'm knee deep (get the pun) in way too many other projects to think about anything new! And if it's not scrappy, it's definitely not likely to even be on my radar! I have so much fabric which is not mine that I need to use up! And more keeps coming as people de-stash and donate!
