Project QUILTING Off Season August Challenge–Be Healthy

Earlier this morning I launched my ‘Hearts for Susie’ campaign.  Check out the blog to find out what I am doing and see where the inspiration for this challenge came from.


Be Healthy

Your challenge – Be inspired by the phrase ‘be healthy.”  One way to treat heart disease is to live a healthy lifestyle.  What does this mean to you?  Portray it in your quilt this month.


  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 the end of the day Monday, September 2nd 2013, 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)
