Project QUILTING September and October Off Season Challenge–An Apple A Day…

Happy September everyone!  I can hardly believe that two-thirds of 2013 is already over!  I have to say that I’m pretty excited for school to start on Tuesday though – no worries…there will be lots of ‘First Day’ pictures of my girls that I’ll happily share with you all!  Due to everyone having a crazy September I'm extending this particular off season challenge on through the end of October!

Let’s get to the September Off Season Project QUITLING Challenge!  I was having a hard time coming up with an idea when I decided I should just stick to what’s been on my mind…so this month’s challenge is…

The Challenge:  An Apple A Day…

I figured I might as well do the challenge on what’s on my mind – apple season!  Our orchard is open for the season and I have apples on my mind – so you all get to be inspired by the phrase “An Apple A Day…"

Feel free to do with it whatever you wish! The ‘…’ could be very important in what you decide to create.


(Please read (or reread) Rule 5…it’s really important!!!!)

  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 30th, 2013 , Thursday, October 31st, 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)

  1. So I figured out why I wasn't getting my "Kim" emails. Apparently I set up a rule to have them all go to a folder called Stuff. For so long I thought that folder was "odds and ends" emails. One day I checked it, UH-OH! Folder renamed. Let's see if I can get back in the game :-). Slowly but surely...

  2. So glad you figured it out! Welcome back!
