16” square again, my friends, reveal date: August 15th, 2012. I love the idea of going back to the 15th of our reveal months. We will have 2,5 months to work on the quilt. Are you OK with that or do you want a sooner or later reveal date? 

Let‘s have fun!



  1. Oh wow, Nicolette! the possibilities are endless... gonna bring my camera when I am in NYC!!!

  2. You have sure opened up the possibilities with this challenge. Your reveal date is fine with me.

  3. Love this idea Nicolette, and the reveal date is fine. Funny though, if someone hadn't chosen this as a theme, it would have been the next one I picked. WooHoo! Off to the stash, because I think I know precisely what I plan on doing.

  4. I love the idea of this one Nicolette! Now to see which way the mind goes with it. Date is good for me!

  5. I like this one. my brain is already going. date is fine with me

  6. Another great challenge! I love Gaudi's Mosaic image; what a gorgeous quilt that could inspire. Date sounds good to me.

  7. I love looking at ancient architecture. Isn't it fascinating?

    1. It is amazing isn't it. Just think, how can you reproduce the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in a quilt? Wouldn't that be something!!

  8. Oh, I am going to like this one- lots of possibilities.
