I will begin working on a surprise quilt using signature blocks that will, of course, be signed by people who will be gathering together for a photo-shoot in May.
We are working on a directory, so while we have as many people as possible, we want to get as many signatures as possible. Then it will be a matter of calling anyone who did not sign to ask that they sign a patch.
While one event is in no way related to the other, we thought that mixing them up would help us to achieve both endeavors. Is that broad and ambiguous enough to keep the surprise secret?
Actually, I'm fairly certain that the gift receiver does not read my blog, but I'm being careful anyway. The "we" that I've referred to are just some friends who are helping me to accomplish all of their goals. Did you catch what I did there? It's not even my idea or plan. I'm just the person who will be doing some of the sewing.

But of course, I need to speak to other people and get this design "approved." I think, though, that whatever I offer will be accepted since I've requested that we keep the plan simple so that other people can also work on the blocks.
Have a wonderful week, everyone.
