Tonight we hosted the long awaited reveal party for our Be My Neighbor Quilt Along. We started our first block on March 13, the final block was posted on October 16, with some finishing instructions posted two weeks later, and tonight 6 weeks later we got together and showed the results of 9 months of work.
We seen 10 finished quilts this evening and two that are works in progress, but they have challenged themselves to get them finished and not leave them in a box hiding away. (Next time you see Carrie, ask how her Be My Neighbor Quilt is coming along, because she is one of the ones not yet finished)
Many of the ladies were able to make the quilt from their scrap bins, buying a small piece here or there to add a color, or to do the borders.
Every quilt looked so different, even though they are all the same patterns, but they all are absolutely beautiful!
Aside from doing a show and share of our quilts and handing out some prizes, we played a few games, and had some snacks, and those that attended got some sneak peaks of what was inside the 30 boxes that were delivered over the past few days. The rest of you will have to wait until Carrie sorts through the boxes to see what came.
I would like to thank everyone that participated in this quilt along, I had so much fun, learned a lot, and it was great to make a quilt with a group of others and the encouragement along the way was amazing.
