Ideas Pease Darksiders ... The Poll

So sorry for the dead air recently, I seem to have been quite busy (relatively) and I am, of course, a World Class Procrastinator!

We have a started a new year of
TSP's Block Of the Month

February's will be released tomorrow ...
with a super easy, quick and simple Block designed to encourage newcomers  :devil:

and a new

The Sewing Places Occasional Paper Pieced Block of the Month
(egged on Inspired by Mme. Cholet, Supergran and Sandra)

And here are some more ideas to (hopefully) Float your Boats .... which will have lots of lovely participants (and pics)


Stitched/Mixed Media Postcard Swap

with an Introductory tut by LeilaMay showing techniques, hints and tips...

This will very much be a mixed media project, textiles, printing, painting, embellishments etc.
on a bi or tri monthly basis (every two or three months)

This would be a swap... sending them to the next participating member on a circular list.
with a different Participant each time choosing the next postcard topic...
Countryside, Seascape, Mythical beast, Flower ????

Project Linus Quilt 

With an overall theme, colour scheme culminating
with an en masse donation at the FOQ
So a July 31st end date.

Mug Rug Angels

A Colour and theme, run over a period of time, (to be decided on)
and donated to TSP peeps (Subscribers only) over the at Lightside

Lets shame those garmenteers into the Darkside!

A TSP Block Swap

Choosing a single block, theme or colour scheme ...
much like the very popular Star block Swap of 2015 (where has the time gone?!)

FOQ TSP Darksider Quilt Entry

We talked about this late last year but it seems to have fizzled out somewhat ...
Do we still want to do this?

Applique Challenge

This could be a BOM....
Or a swap ....
Or both

Mini Quilt Challenge/Swap

Again I would suggest on a bi or tri monthly basis

Cushion Competition

Theme/Colour based with prize


QAYG Sewalongathon

I'll be making a new and simple QAYG quilt which I invite you to follow and hopefully sewalong with me

I am going to try and fashion a poll;
please vote for anything and everything you fancy seeing (and entering into  :devil: ) in The Darkside!!!

Voting will close at midnight on the 27th February 2018 ... Results on the 28th !!!

I voted for 4, but TBH, there were 3 others which were good 'maybe's'. If any of these other ones were chosen, I could quite easily get drawn in.

Some interesting ideas/plans.  :)

I haven't voted because the next few months will probably be quite busy - we have DD's wedding in May and I will have to sort things out for Auntie so I may have to go away a few times. I don't want to impose my views on other people when I can't guarantee taking part.

Ok ladies (and Germs if there are any over here)

You have voted!!

Cushion Competition and Project Linus have stormed ahead with Mini Quilt Swap/Competition, Mug Rug Angels and QAYG Sewalong coming up the rear.

Stitched postcard Swap sadly didn't catch your fancy, is a pity as I fancied learning how to do those but maybe Leila and I can make our own.

If there are any of these ideas that you would like to champion, please step up as it would be good to hear another Darksider's tips/techniques ...... and you must be sick of my tuts by now.

Thank you for voting and I really look forward to seeing some beautiful creations over the year.

More info as to How to take part in the first of these next month!   :P
