Up for a challenge?

Hey there,
So I've been reading a lot of blogs out there where the quilters have some sort of fabric challenge.  They get the fabric and have to create something with it.  So in my sleep deprived brain I was thinking we should do something similar.  We could exchange something from our stash/scraps, make a quilt and return it to the other person.  It could be win-win, we get to be creative, maybe leave our comfort zones a bit, and de-stash (thus freeing room for more fabric?). What do you think?
Afterthought-  It could also be a WIP that you think you might never finish or something you just want done so you can donate it.

Never ending baby quilts

Hey there,
  So here's a couple of pics of recent finishes.  The first one is a panel quilt that I did some stitch in the ditch around the blocks.  It has a bit of a franken-back but I wasn't going to the store to get more fabric.

The second one is a plus inspired quilt with scrappy blocks.  It's for a male grade one teacher and his girlfriend who are expecting this spring.  She's an artist and very bohemian so scrappy seems to be the way to go for her.  This one was designed on an envelope back.  I know, very technical, who needs computer software.

Some straight line quilting in the scrappy blocks.
So what's up with you?
