It’s that time again!  Another Project QUILTING Challenge has been issued.  I have changed up the way you enter your projects and the way we will vote for them…please read carefully below and plan accordingly for this new method!  There will be NO LEEWAY as far at the timing goes so make sure you know what time zone you’re in compared to me!  (I live in Wisconsin, US – Central Time Zone).  And if you have any questions or concerns about the changes please don’t hesitate to contact me!  I want this to be as user friendly as possible!!!!

Also, I just want to remind everyone that these challenges are meant to be inspirational and FUN!  I know it can be stressful making a quilt in just a week but trust me – it can be done and it will be so nice to have COMPLETED a quilting project (or 3) ALREADY in 2014!  Every week that you enter a piece for the challenge you are entered into a hat to win one of the amazing prizes from our sponsors!  The public voting poll will start right away at noon on Sunday, February 23rd and go until Friday, February 28th at 8pm.   AND, if you finish the challenge in the time allotted your name will also be added into the final hat at the completion of the season for an opportunity to win the GRAND PRIZE!  Inspiration, quilting, fun AND Prizes!?  Can it get much better?

Before we get to the challenge – let’s see what our amazing sponsors have donated for this week!

PRIZES for Week 4


Each challenge that you complete a quilt for your name will be put into hat. One of my three beautiful girls will draw a name randomly for each prize.  Don’t forget – this also means you’re in the hat for the Grand Prize at the end of the season…

    • Include patchwork.

    • Include appliqué.

    • Have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.

    • Please still include on your blog or flickr image of your entry a description of your creative process, including where you are (ie, I create in Madison, WI) and the size of your project.  If you decide to just directly upload your image to the link up party please email me this information so I can share it with everyone else.

    • I would still love if everyone posted to the Flickr Group as that makes making mosaics and looking over things much easier, but it is no longer required.



  6. There is now a ‘Challenge Quilts’ Facebook Group you can join in on to share your thoughts, questions, or whatever related to quilting challenges.  You can always post progress pictures there if you want too!

  7. Even if you’ve been participating for years… Please email Kim at {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line so that Kim can keep you updated on the behind the scenes going-ons and get all her records straight.
