Soooooo,... I was checking out things on Instagram the other day (what's new??) and realized that I have ALMOST 200 followers!! (185 to be exact) That's pretty cool! Then, I decided that once I reached the 200 mark, I would do a little giveaway and it will definitely involve these tiny little red, aqua and pink granny squares :) SO,... if you're not already checking out ITPB on Instagram (insidethepaperbox), then head over, follow me and stay tuned for giveaway details!
Shortly after that, I started scheming with a fellow IGer an idea for a potential quilt-a-long. The RockstarQAL (as it will be referred to from here no on) is where you take inspiration from your favorite band/rockstar/musical artist and create a quilt. You'll use your inspiration to choose your fabric, prints, colors, pattern, etc. I want to know if there's any interest in doing this in a formal manner, i.e. sharing progress, starting a flickr group, giveaways, link ups and start/end dates. Whatdaya think??? Anyone want to get in on this??
Here is my fav band, and the inspiration for my Rockstar quilt:

I love these guys! Many, many years ago, a friend of mine and I went to a concert in Dallas during their Return Of Saturn tour and fell in love! It was pretty much a dream night, we had backstage passes, met the band, partied with the band, danced with the band, and were invited to drive out to Houston the next day for another concert and another backstage party. Um YEAH! What a weekend! Anyway, I will be pulling fabric based on this awesome group to make my quilt. Who would you choose????
