June 2014–Project QUILTING Off Season Challenge: Panel It

It’s that time!  Happy June 1st!  I am ready for June.  I’m ready for warm.  I’m ready to swim!  Every time I look out the window I’m STILL amazed at just how beautiful green can be…proof of a ridiculously long winter.
It also means it’s time for another Project QUILTING off-season challenge.  I’m taking the suggestion from fellow Project QUILT-er, Kelly Kroon.

Panel It.

The challenge: Take a panel fabric and make a cool quilt and/or quilted item out of it!
I’m pretty sure this is the panel I’ll be using for the challenge.  It’s going to be a challenge but I’m ready for it!
I realize everyone may not have a panel of fabric but feel free to buy one for the challenge!
I recommend checking out local quilt shops to find one that inspires you!
If you can’t get to your local quilt shop – lots of great options online…
just to name a few…

  • Projects should be finished by Monday, June 30th and added to the link up below.  Anytime is just fine…just as long as they’re submitted by the time the linky closes (which there’s a countdown on so you can check your time constraints). 
  • This is purely just so we have a FINISH before we get moving on the July Off Season Challenge.   Not only is Project QUILTING meant to inspire you to make something you never thought you would – but it’s to help encourage you to FINISH the project too.
  • Have fun!
  • And…if you want – add them to the Project QUILTING Flickr Group too!
Prize for Off Season Project Quilting Challenges: (winner will be randomly drawn from a hat)

logo_crafty_sewing_150x150“Quilting Gift Certificate” for $30.00 off the Quilting on a Baby size quilt or larger. (Baby, Lap, Twin. Full, Queen, or King) from Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting.

The Gift Certificate will be good for 4 months starting one month after the challenge ends.  Excluding the Month of December for using the gift certificate.
The quilting gift certificate is transferable to another person, so you can share it with a friend, if you’d like.
Marcia will do an estimate based on the size of the winner's quilt top, quilting choices, thread choices, and batting and if they would like to purchase backing fabric from me. Winner can send backing fabric and batting with their quilt top, but I do have it available. This way the winner will have a good estimate of the value of your quilting prize.

Hand-Dyed Fabric Fat Quarters from Kelly Kroon!
Participant Kelly Kroon has generously donated these six gorgeous coral hand-dyed fabrics to one randomly drawn winner!  Thanks Kelly for adding to the pot!

Off Season Prizes
  • One of the most stressful parts of running a fun event on my blog for me is soliciting sponsors and prizes.  Off season means I don’t have to do that. 
  • BUT if you want to donate anything to be randomly drawn for by participants in the challenge I’m happy to post about it and run the hat drawing.  If this is something you’re interested in…just email me at lapaceksorchard {at} gmail {dot} com.

  1. Since you are using my idea, I will be happy to donate some of my hand-dye fabric as a prize.
