+DxChallenged Posted May 12, 2002 Share Posted May 12, 2002 Hey! I currently have 6 quilts on my work list....I finished one yesterday and 4 have all the blocks sewn (3 are for the Canadian Geoquilt, one is components for the Tolkien theme quilt and one doesn't have a destination yet).....so I was thinking.........Is there any interest in starting another geoquilt. We in the NOrtheast are in prime time caching. I had 7 hits on my caches last weekend and all were new cachers. I think that the Buffalo NY area may see a rise in the number of caches here....... Anyway.....I started going over some design books....looking at my stash of fabric.......and I came up with a quilt similar in contruction to the Canadain geoquilt (made entirely of half square triangles and in 2 colors. I have chosen a "From sea to shinning sea" theme and so want blue and yellow to be the major colors. Cachers would sign in the sunshine - yellow triangles. This can work much as the first one did but with some lessons added from my Canadain project. I would like to enlist a few ...maybe 2 to 6 cachers to help with the distribution, placement location and retrieval portion. Plus if we could get a computer literate person to help with the picture piece of it......pictures of the blocks...idea of how the quilt will look and a map of where blocks are placed (as majbach did for the Canadain site) that would be excellant.....My part will be in providing the fabric, cutting all the triangles...something like 500 in this one.......sewing the blocks, ironing them on paper to be signed and then sending off the packets to the 6 that will be the "senders". Maybe we could devide the states into regions and do it that way......Also could have a world portion if there is enough response........ So what do you think? The last one was started in the fall.....this in the mid to late spring with a finish date of around August.....my paid work load is less then.....so more time to sew.....at least at night when I'm not caching I'm interested to see what kind of response we get this time.....the first was great as is the one in Canada now.......
