I mean, small as in size, not in time put in, of course.  Cheesy

I'm thinking... 1-2 feet square as the limits, and any shape welcome.  (that is 12x18 inches is fine, or a 14" circle or what have you.)

And maybe a partner provides 5 themes from which one is chosen?

What do you think?

This sounds potentially cool, although I'm not up for anything big until mid-may. 

A couple thoughts-- for those of us who don't have enough wall-space for the art we've already got, possibly having an option for mini-art quilt as pillow topper, or unfinished to use as one side of a craft bag would help make this work for more people?

I would think leaving the style open to the creator would be cool, I love making small quilts they make awesome table toppers (and are great for keeping heat off the center of the table if you're a family like mine that pops dinner in the middle of the table) 

I've done something like 14 mini quilts in the past few months they are super fun Smiley

leaving it up to the creator sounds good to me, I'm no rigid traditionalist.  I tend to get distracted. 

I'd say, so long as it's fabric, it's fine.  Smiley

I like to do the small quilts and doing small art quilts just adds to the fun! They take SO much less time than does a bed sized quilt...

I'd most likely be game if this one flies Smiley

I'd be interested in doing this. 
(Not sure why I think that since I have to whip up 7 quilts by summer, but hell, who said I was sane?)

It does not due to dwell on lists and forget to craft.

This sounds neat, I've been thinking of getting more into quilting. I've only done small things like placemats and coasters, so this sounds like a good introduction. I'll keep an eye out for it. Smiley
