A Significant Day

Today is my birthday - happy birthday to me. I am writing this quite early on because I am excited to share with you the news that I have a guest spot today on Lily's Quilts.  Lynne and I had a few virtual conversations over the weekend about a quilt I had made some time ago and she was interested in the way my classes approach their quilting. Her flickr group has been discussing different ways of QAYG so today is my contribution to the discussion, thanks Lynne.

Meanwhile I am enjoying brekkie,cards and pressies - check out this fab gift from Liz........isn't it great having friends who know you so well, she has not long returned from a trip to India, this is a perfect gift, thanks Liz.

My next piece of news is a bit of fun. I have decided to host a Mystery Quilt a long.......I ran this Mystery Quilt programme in my classes a few years back and am unlikely to repeat this project in class, so thought I'd share it here. I don't want to put anyone under heaps of pressure so can take the pace as steady as you want, I had thought fortnightly or monthly postings of blocks? Think we could take the month of May to sign up, get some info out and let everyone think about fabric (the best bit!)and then first block posted early June?
I have set up a flickr group for you to join here and of course, it would be great if you would join me here at bluepatchquilter, as a follower.This is of course, open to all the ladies in my classes who missed the Mystery Quilt project.
Thanks to Lynne's great tutorial, I also have a button if you would like to put it on your blog.
