Every time a quilter made and entered a quilt into the six weekly challenges – their name was entered into the drawing for the final, Grand Prize.

  • 257 quilts were made during the last three months of Project QUILTING (and yes – it’s not even April yet!).

  • 77 quilters participated in at least one challenge

  • 20 of those quilters made a quilt for all six challenges (getting them an seventh opportunity to win)

  1. Oh wow Kim, there is nothing sweeter than seeing your baby girls holding a slip of paper with "Carlotta Jean" (my mom's nickname for ME). Doing a happy dance, cartwheels, and jumping for joy. THANK YOU! What a great surprise. I have had the BEST experience with these challenges. Every challenge was incredible.

    I can't believe the talent of all these quilters from around the world. I have learned something from each and every one of the participants.

    Kim, I don't know how you do it. Mommy, wife, designer, career, quilting, blogging.... You have worked so hard to make Project Quilting something all quilters, new and experienced, can enjoy.

    Thank you to all the sponsors! They just add to the fun.
