The great thing about being part of a group is to see the way we all take inspiration from the theme and run with it in different ways - it's very exciting when we post our quilts on 'reveal' day. The looming deadline puts a bit of pressure on, but that's (hopefully!) balanced by the fact that this is a very friendly and supportive group.
We have a 'mission statement' here but what's most important is:
have fun doing what you feel inspired to do,
and don't compare yourself to anyone else!
