Snowball–a Focus Through the Prism November Challenge


And with that – we’re onto our final challenge of the ‘Focus Through the Prism’ Project QUILTING Challenge. I don’t know about you – but I’ve had a ton of fun with these challenges.  Not only by creating some great little quilts – but by meeting all of you folks and seeing what you’ve come up with in just one month!  In the last six months – 361 quilts have been created!  That is AMAZING!!!!
I know some of you are sad that the challenge is coming to an end but I want you to know that I have no intention of closing the group on facebook.  Feel free to chat, share your quilts, and encourage each other there.  Also – I’m only giving you one month off before the seventh season of Project QUILTING begins.  There are more fabulous challenges to come and they’re not too far off!

The Inspiration Block:  Snowball

Each final project should read predominantly as one color in the spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet. You may not use the same color as you used in a previous challenge.
  • A ROYGBIV hand-dyed color bundle of fabric must be purchased from Cherrywood Fabrics.
  • You must use ONE fabric from the ROYGBIV challenge bundle in each quilt which should correspond with the color you want your quilt to ‘read’.
  • Any other fabrics from your stash may be added.
  • You must use the month's block as your inspiration.
  • Quilts must finish 20” square.
  • Share the story behind your quilt and how the block ‘Snowball’ was the inspiration.
  • Your quilt must have a name.
  • Pictures of your FINISHED 20” square quilts must be LINKED UP at the bottom of this post by 11:55pm CST on Monday, November 30th.
  • If you need me to link up for you I NEED the pictures and stories by 10:00pm CST on Monday, November 30th.  I just cannot stay awake until midnight!
  • ‘How to link up to a Link Up’ post
    • Don't use Instagram/Flickr/or blog?  Email me:  lapaceksorchard {at} gmail {dot} com a picture and description of your project and I'll link up for you.
  • A 4" quilt rod pocket will need to be added to the back of the quilt before you send it to me January.  Check out THIS tutorial for how to do this.

    • 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.
    • There is now a ‘Focus Through the Prism’ Facebook Group and 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!
    • Haven’t ordered your bundle yet?  No worries!  Order now!  You can join in on all seven or just one challenge!
    • Please use the hashtag #pqoff #focusthroughtheprism #roygbiv when posting on social networking sites to help spread the word.
    • Prizes! There will be a grand prize at the end … more details to come.  In the meantime – check out THIS POST for details about the randomly drawn prizes given out each month just for completing the challenge!
    • I made up a little block tutorial called Four Snowballs as inspiration if you need some.
