What are you most proud of? 1) So many family and friends participated and demonstrated their creativity! 2) We didn't spoil the surprise while working on it for 4 months. 3) This was my first time making a quilt. My mom helped; she knows how to sew, but she had never finished a quilt before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun and let participants show their tallent and creativity. Aside from assigning letters (2 for every letter of the alphabet), we let participants use whatever medium they wanted (paints, pens, fabric, thread, buttons, etc.). We only asked that they used material that could be washed. We also kept everyone informed by sending pictures of the individual blocks as they were received in the mail. (We gave ~ 1.5 month's time to return the blocks, which gave us just under 2 months to put everything together and finish the quilt in time for the shower.)
