I too am interested.  My grandmother used to make crazy quilt pillows out of grandpa's old ties and ever since I was little I have wanted to do a crazy quilt.  Personally, I tend to be more of a traditionalist in my quilting but I'm willing to go with whatever the group decides.  The time frame is also good for me as I have several other projects in various stages of completion at the moment, just like everyone else.

Hi

I think this sounds like a great swap idea and would love to join.  I think the time frame is great  as well.

What would you all think about a quilt as you go block? You use 100% cotton batting and a neutral or specified color backing fabric then crazy quilt your block. This is where a color request could be worked in because the decorative stitches will show on the backing. You will also have a reversible quilt. There are some great tutorials on YouTube. When you get all your blocks they are ready for sashing and biding. Magic Quilt!  Hahaha. This would avoid the issue of how to quilt around embellishments. 

Google "How to join up quilt as you go blocks by the gourmet quilter". Great video.
