Are You Liberated Yet?

2 posts in one day and today was supposed to be Wordless Wednesday LOL.

I just thought you might be interested to know what's happening in the liberated quilters world on Yahoo.

We are already up to 70 members - wow!

A challenge has been issued. We are making quilts for the Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative, using the words "free" or "mind". Okay okay, I know the letter "M" is one of the hardest but I've got to kick-start these gals somehow! Anyway, we've got until the end of June so quite long enough I think to get the quilts done.

We are just about to hold our first virtual online retreat. Just one day to start with, but it should be fun.

We also have a few newbies who have never done anything like this before and are breaking out of the mould. Wooo hooo.

There are some great liberated quilters in this big world of ours. Not all of them have blogs, but some of the quilts are just awesome.

If you want to join in the fun, click on the link in the first paragraph, or the Join Yahoo Groups badge over there on the right.

Perhaps I'll see you there.

Oh and Tonya - your tutorials are getting a lot of hits.

Clare, today I finally checked out the Members Websites in ourLinks/LibQltrs. Group, so here I am. And I love your blog, so easy to read and with great links. Thanks for doing so much on our Yahoo Group. Kathleen in CT

Hi, Clare -- Sorry, I have been so out of the loop. Joined just now and am looking forward to it! I love the spelling with Flikr letters.

Yes, I am quite liberated. It is a pleasure to be liberated. That project sounds really cool.

I joined up today too. I am so glad you wrote about this group. I have been spending a lot of time at the hospital lately with my mom - she has alzheimer's and has recently had some heart problems so I am so glad to get reconnected to this group and this challenge.

Hi Clare, looks like you have been keeping busy. The Yahoo group sounds like a lot of fun and for a good cause. Congrats on winning the book. Hugs, Finn

Wouldn't you know, as soon as I sign up for the group I end up doing other things... sheesh!

Sharon said...

Hmmm, guess I should go check in with the Liberated group once in a while! Thanks for the reminder. . .I've been remiss!
Love those letters!

Cher said...

the letters are great...I am overwhelmed with current projects so will not join the liberated group until there is more time in my life!
glad to hear about it however.

I’m liberated in a lot of ways, but when it comes to quilting... I’m still exploring what I like the most.

I love the letters, I’m addicted to letterfonts. My professional malformation!
