Am I Crazy?

There is an antique medallion quilt featured in the book that I love so much! So, here’s my crazy idea. What about starting a quilt-along to make a quilt similar in flavor? Would anyone be interested in making this quilt along with me?
Here’s the idea:
~ Make any type of center block. I’m not that crazy about the one in the original. But I love the idea of all the borders. And some of them are so interesting.
~ Every month I would draw up the instructions to add a border or two to the center and post them on my blog.
~ Use whatever fabrics you want. We will post pictures every month of our progress.
~ Within a year we all would have a finished quilt. Well, more likely we’ll start in June or so. I haven’t even begun to calculate and figure out how to make this quilt yet. The book gives a finished dimension of 83″ x 88″. It’s definitely a bed quilt.
Who’s interested? Am I crazy? (ok, maybe don’t answer that question) It’s not like I need another project… but… maybe my advent garland could be delayed a year (I haven’t even started it yet, which makes me 4 months behind!).
