Let's knit a Quilt

Well here it is February and I promised to keep you up dated on the progress we make on the BARN RAISING QUILT. What!!! You've forgotten!!! That's ok, just check out the past blog here.
Want to join in the fun? All you need is some leftover fingering yarn and about an hour of your time to be part of this quilt. The plan is to get as many squares as possible by Sept 1st , then we'll assemble what we have and give away a quilt, anywhere from carriage size to twin bed size. Of course I'd be tickled if we get the larger size done but, we'll see.

This is the most difficult part of making a square. It's started from the center and worked outward ,so, keeping every needle in it's place can be a little trying,but, once you've gone past this point it's all eezy peezy.

A little patience to start and then knowing how to knit a stitch and add a stitch and you could be part of this project. What do you think? come and join in the fun.
Here's what we've gotten so far and it's really starting to take on it's own personality.Don't have time? I've made no final decision as to where to donate the quilt. Have any thoughts on the subject? What would you do............................said the hobbit

Yes please, include me! I have leftover fingering yarn. No needles though... I see some bamboo skewers-turned-needles in my future.
