6 am–Project QUILTING November Off Season Challenge

I’m writing up the November Off Season Project QUILTING Challenge just before I head to bed.  I’m at the end of Day 5 of my journey to the International Quit Festival.  It will be an early morning on the bus tomorrow.  I’ve been editing my photo’s from the journey so far – I’m absolutely overwhelmed by all the amazing quits and talent I saw at the show on Wednesday night and Thursday night.  I had thought about using something from there for the challenge – but I had to go with something a little more open to interpretation.  I hope you enjoy!  Oh – and I promise to post photo’s from the trip as soon as I can!

The Challenge – 6am

Be Inspire by ‘6 am’ – that’s it – just tell us how it relates to your finished quilt.

  • Projects should be finished by Sunday, November 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 into December.
  • 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!

“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.

PRIZE 2:

Marcia would also like to giveaway to a separate winner a prize of one of her original patterns(value $8.00).
Here are the six quilt patterns the winner will get to chose from:
  1. Summer Tomatoes Quilt Pattern – PDF
  2. Easy to Sew Quilt Pattern – PDF
  3. Textures Quilt Pattern – PDF
  4. Quilted Checkbook or Calendar Pattern – PDF
  5. Quilted Pocket Purse – PDF
  6. Turn a Quilt into a Bag Pattern - PDF
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.
