Project QUILTING–Off Season Challenge–Pantone

Six amazing quilts were created for the April Off Season Challenge.  (I’ll post closer looks at all the quilts later this week…lots happening today.  Go to the flickr group now if you can’t wait to see them!)  Let’s see if even more quilts will be made with the May Off Season Challenge.

The Challenge

It’s FINALLY starting to feel like spring around here so let’s be inspired by the 2013 Spring Pantone Color Pallet to make our May Quilt.  Choose at least three of the colors below to create your next quilt.  You can use as many of the colors you see below as you want but the only additional colors you can add are white, black and/or grey.



  1. Have FUN! These off season challenges aren’t about winning a prize – they’re about being inspired to create something you may never have created without the inspiration.

  2. Please remember that these projects need to be created during the time frame of the challenge to qualify for the challenge.

  3. Project can be a quilt, a garment, a bag, or any other item that is created using patchwork, appliqué or other traditional quilting techniques.

  4. If you need advice/tips/help (or you just want to give us all a sneak peak) with your project as you work on it feel free to post pictures to the flickr group: Project QUILTING WIP:

  5. POST your entries with a description of your creative process, including where you are (ie, I create in Madison, WI) and the size of your project by Friday, May 31st, 2013, at noon, CDT, to this flickr group – OR email a picture/description of your completed project to {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line and I’ll post your piece for you. (1 month to finish the challenge)

  6. If you do want people to truly critique (the good and the bad) your project please post it to the Flickr Group: Project QUILTING – Critiques

The Prizes

logo_crafty_sewing_150x150What!?  The Prizes?  I thought this was an off season challenge just for fun?  Well – it is.  BUT one of my fabulous sponsors Marcia of Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting has decided to spice up this months challenge.  2011-12-12-13 Quilts 101 (Medium)She’s giving you a $20.00 Gift Certificate good towards for Extra Wide Fabric and Shipping!  Anyone who finishes their off-season challenge quilt by the end of May will get entered into a drawing to be randomly chosen for this great prize.

Good luck!  Have fun!  And don’t forget…

It’s Time to Think Outside the Square!
