Superbowl Twist!

Nope..the movie didn't happen,but it might tonight!

Still, as I'm packing for the retreat tomorrow, it occurred to me that I didn't post more about the Superbowl Twist Challenge!

It's not a mystery, because steps won't be given. This is an "at your own pace" project, with a goal of using up leftover 2.5" strips, maybe a jelly roll you haven't found a place for, or a coordinated pack of FQs that haven't been purposed for something yet, or all of the above.

You can make it a long weekend of Superbowl Sewing, as I will at the retreat, or you can sew when you can. Remember, no rules? The Strip Twist pattern is found HERE!

There will be a lot of chatter about various projects people are working on at our Quiltvillechat@yahoogroups.com list. But you don't have to be a part of the list to participate. It's just a good quick technique project where you can sew pedal to the metal and have something to show for the weekend.

It is up to you if you want to donate this quilt to a charity of your choice or not. Mine is going to be a class sample, and then when I'm done using it as a class sample, I will donate it to a worthy cause.

I'll take pics of my progress while I'm gone, and we'll see how much I can actually get done by Sunday eve when I return! It goes so fast, I better plan on throwing in some probable border fabrics just in case I get that far.

I leave here at 8:30 in the morning, I hope to be sewing by 11am! *LOL* (Bring it on, I'm SEW READY!!)

Oh, and special thanks to Forest Jane for the graphics!
