I mentioned a local group challenge in a post a few days ago.  I was  
goikng to describe it.  Ginger slightly misunderstood and said that she  
would welcome a challenge.  So, I thought I would describe it anyway,  
and see if there was any interest.  I will simplify the'design' (leave  
it to you) but keep the bare bones.  There will be absolutely no dented  
feelings here if no-one is interested, but it will be fun to see any  

I had designed a quilt which some members of our Committee thought would  
make a good month by month challenge for our local group.  I then  
designed about 40 blocks and prepared the whole thing.  I think the  
original idea might be somewhat difficult to do online; but perhaps the  
essential elements would make an interesting theme.

Here goes then:

The design is based on four different sized and shaped blocks:
4" square, 8" square, 4" x 8" rectangle, 8" x 12" rectangle.
My blocks were all different, but perhaps for these purposes they should  
all be the same, with the rectangular blocks being the basic squares  
stretched (that is very easy to do with many blocks).

Say, for instance, a Square in a Square block - either square on or on  
point.  That is a very easy block to do in any size and any shape.

The design could also be made with 5" base - or 6" I suppose? might be a  
bit big for the large rectangle?

I don't have an easy way to show pictures, at the moment, so you will  
have to play about with the positioning.  Eventually, in the autumn, I  
will learn how to put things onto my website when I want to.  I have the  
instructions, but haven't yet had time to work out how to do it.

That had better be it for now.  I hope it will arrive.

Are you saying Pat, that the forty blocks would all be Square in a Square, or is that just the first block?


Re: local group challenge
Congratulations, Pat!  So glad you 'got through' here.  Just myself, but I  
can't handle another challenge.  Keeping Mr. Esther from climbing on the  
roof to clean the chimney is challenge enough.  And: keeping Yogi from  
patting toads to see if they'll jump.  And: getting all the gators back from  
the highway where they want to amuse the tourists and bring them home for  
dinner.  Y'all just carry on and I'll be the cheering team.  Polly
