Project Quilting Apple Blossom Time Challenge

I want to start by saying I was very impressed with the quality of the entries in our first challenge. I'm amazed at what you all created in such a short time. We're definitely off to a great start.

A special thanks to the Fat Quarter Shop. They have been a huge help to us in promoting Project Quilting and have generously donated some $25 gift certificates for prizes. The public vote winner and the judge's choice winner of this week's challenge will each receive a $25 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop.

As many of you know,
Lapacek's Orchard is our family business. The apple trees are just beginning to bloom and we're really hoping there will still be blossoms on May 8 and 9 when we will be hosting Apple Blossom Days. Last spring Kim took lots and lots of pictures during bloom and the orchard is a truly beautiful place during that time.

So....... on to Challenge Number 2. I wanted something really different than Challenge 1 and think I found it.

1. Apple Blossom Time is the theme. Here are a few of Kim's pictures to inspire you and you can check out her Picassa album if you'd like to see more. (Warning: Lots of these pictures include her beautiful daughters.)

2. Maximum size is 45" x 45".

3. Minimum size is 12" x 12".

4. Budget is unlimited. Spend whatever you wish.

5. POST your entries with a description of your creative process by Sunday, May 2, at noon, CDT, to this flickr group – Project QUILTING with KimsCraftyApple: OR email a picture/description of your completed project to with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line.

6. If this is the first Project Quilting challenge you've participated in, please email Kim at with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line so that Kim can send you feedback from the judges.
