On my 'design wall' this week is a decision. If the decision is 'Go for it!" then I have to design a quilting presentation, and get everything ready.
I've been asked by the Bloomington MN Historical Society to give a quilting demonstration at the upcoming Heritage Days on September 15th. They have suggested demonstrating and talking about quilting in the early days - in costume - outdoors from noon to 6pm. That's 6 hours of demonstrating hand quilting - which I. have. never. done. And it needs to be interactive. And I have two days to decide and 10 days to get it all together. Budget - Zero. I've always machine pieced and quilted, and though I have done hand sewing as a child, I have no hope of my hand quilting work passing inspection.

What should I do? Jump in with both feet and do my best, or say 'No.'?
Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday for advice. Help me decide and leave a comment. Thanks!
