In addition to what SS said, showing work that you have contributed shows your commitment to a project,it gives others a baseline on what you're looking for, and shows you're not entirely reliant of the work of others. But a lot lead time is need for a project of your scope.
In short, work on July 4th stuff now if you want this project to have a chance.
I certainly hope this doesn't come across as mean spirited as that's not my intention.
