However this has a different twist on it......................
It's not me that's starting it but Sarah, my eldest.
In the UK there is a scheme for young people to participate in called the Duke of Edinburgh Award (colloquially known as the DofE). It can be taken at three levels - bronze, silver and gold.
The award at each level has four parts: service, activity, skill and expedition
For her bronze award Sarah has completed 3 months service - helping at a church kids club, and 6 months activity - trampolining. Now this leaves her with 3 months skill and the expedition to do. Her school will arrange the expedition but she has decided to go for patchwork and quilting for her skill.
She has to spend at least one hour each week for three months on it.
With this in mind, last summer she bought two metres of this funky fabric
Then when we were in Hereford we bought the three others to accompany it.
We originally thought about doing a sampler quilt but then she spotted a 'zipper' design on someone's blog I was perusing so we'll go with that, probably in a lap quilt size to sit on the end of her bed.
Another convert :o)
On my front Spencer's Stars is back under the needle as I get on with the fairly tedious job of microstippling all around the edge now - still at least it's making progress
