So, a quilting friend of mine and fellow church member has sent me a quilting chain letter. You know how chain letters go. You send to the first person on the list, take their name off the list, move the other names up and put yours on the bottom. In this letter, you are to send 2 purple 6 inch cotton fabric squares to the first person on the list. You are then to send the letter off to 4 more people, and you send each of those people 2 6 inch purple cotton squares too. The thought of the squares coming in the mail and then making a purple quilt with them is exciting. The friend that sent it is excited about the prospect of getting in more purple squares and keeps asking me if I've sent them off yet. My answer is no because I need 4 people who I know will also send it off the way it's supposed to go. She didn't ask me ahead, just assumed and I don't want to do that. Now I need to somehow find those 4 people who are willing to let me send the chain letter on to them!

I once joined a quilting club that worked something like that, only we were told members of the club to send squares to. I thought it would be a neat thing to do, but it was expensive and time consuming. I acquired enough to make a quilt and resigned from the club.

I've been tempted to join the evening quilt guild because I heard that they do a block exchange, but also a secret sister program.

@marsha32 that sounds interesting. I had blocks from all over the U.S. I planned on embroidering the states they came from, but it was too much work.

Why you sent these chain letters to each other?

It should be a fun way to gather enough blocks to make a quilt but they very rarely completely cycle through.

Thanks for not sending it to me. I would not have four people to send to. I do have purple five inch squares. Not even the right size I see.

Darn! I was hoping you would be one that I can send it to. I just really don't know. Janet says to just pick some people in the quilt guild, but I don't want to do that random and I'm not good about approaching in person.

A chain letter always puts a lot of pressure on the one who receives it, in my opinion.
