I know what you mean redmadder... it mushrooms with all these wonderful creative minds...

Xmas mini's are a much easier item to make than the last one we gave no theme on the last one which made the pattern decision harder.. I think we have over 50 members here.. it would be a great Xmas if for our first year we all got into this and shared a little xmas joy by giving each other a mini quilt...

Gimp I know the last mini we accepted blocks as mini's but that was cause alot of the members were not sure what a mini was I think we could be a little more specific on what a mini is and have everyone consider this when making their masterpiece.

(just another opinion from the loud mouth in Ontario...one of them anyways..)

my last mini had 49 3 inch blocks plus a border, much needed to balance and bring together all the different fabrics. i used 2 inch squares to make the bowtie blocks. it was easy to do after piecing hundreds of tiny blocks for my heritage quilts. so not for everyone.

the mini i got was simple and beautiful, not nearly so many blocks. so there is room for everyone's creative style.
