Since the first week's assignment is to assemble fabric, I can probably do that even though I'll be traveling for work most of next week. I usually don't purchase layer cakes -- but I ordered a layer cake of Minick and Simpson's Bar Harbor fabrics a couple days ago. And since I have a full bolt of white cotton broadcloth, I'll be set for the background as well.
For anyone interested in learning more, check out p.s. i quilt.
