I signed up for a quilt project which is going to highlight 150 women from Canadian history. Each block had the story of one woman from our history, and 3 blocks come out each week. I'm not doing very well at keeping up, but I seem to be able to do 6 blocks every couple of weeks which should keep me on track in the long term.
And long term it is - there are 50 weeks of clues and we are on week 7 right now. There's still lots of time to sign up at http://www.nextstepquiltdesigns.com. If you do, you can get the first few weeks (and any others you might miss) on dvd at the end of the project, for half price.
I am thinking about ways to maintain the link between the women's stories and the blocks, for the final quilt. Some of the participants have mentioned making a big label with all the names which sounds like a neat idea. For now I'm saving all the stories in a folder.
