Wow, we are inspiring people!

This morning I was reading my favorite blogs and discovered this post at Wednesday's Child. Joanne is following along with our challenge and doing her own 12 x 12 "chocolate" challenge quilt. It pleased me no end to think that our little project is inspiring other people in their work.

Yesterday Joan Samuelson posted on the Quiltart list that she was making 12 x 12 journal quilts and cited our group, along with Jeanne Williamson as her inspiration.

Isn't that great? And humbling? And a little bit exciting? Maybe we should add some links to our sidebar. Are there other artists who are doing their own 12 x 12 quilts following along with our themes?

Yes! I am following along with your themes, although I'm not adhering to the 12" x 12" rule. I am working on a chocolate one right now. It will be done soon and I will post it on my blog. It will be donated to a Valentine auction for aids in my town.

How cool is that?! I'd be up for a "friends of 12x12" section on the sidebar. It's neat to hear that others, like Lisa and Joanne are taking our inspiration and running with it. :-)

We aren't following your themes, but Wietske started a whole new dutch group, inspired on this group:

This is great that we've had a kind of ripple effect. Brenda - hate to great more work but we definately need a links section!

OK, Official Fan Mail:
We HAVE been inspired by 12x12! Thanks for the Friends’ link! I think I’m the only one with a blog so I will have to get photos of their work. Looking forward to the February Chocolate reveal!
