Seasons–Challenge 2 of Project QUILTING Season 7

It’s time for the second Project QUILTING challenge of Season Seven!  67 quilts were started, finished, and linked up in just one week for the first challenge!  That is AMAZING!!!!  But … our record is 72 quilts made in one week … perhaps we can get to (beat) that number with this weeks challenge!?  Be sure to tell all your quilting friends about how great this challenge is and what it is doing for your inspiration and creativity!  Let’s see just how many quilts can be made in a week!

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.  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!  There will also be a special prize for the ‘Public Vote’ winner of the week.   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?

Thanks once again to Diane Lapacek for coming up with the themes for these challenges!

Challenge 2 – Seasons

1. The inspiration for this challenge is Seasons.  You can choose one season or all of them. Or pick another meaning of seasons, maybe seasons of life. It’s up to you!
2.  Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline. Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes.
3.  Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements:
  1. Include patchwork.
  2. Include appliqué.
  3. Have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.

4. Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge.

5. Link up either a blog post or flickr image to the linky at the bottom of THIS PAGE bySunday, January 24th, 2016, at noon, CDT –OR email a picture/description of your completed project to {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line by 11am on Sunday, January 24.
  • Please still include on your blog, instagram 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.
  • 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!
  • Please use the hastag #pq7 when posting on social networking sites to help spread the word!

With that – good luck to everyone!  Don’t forget – you can find Project QUILTING on Facebook too! And a Challenge Group if you’re want to find out about all the challenges you can in the quilting world!

  1. Kim, is it okay to use a commercial pattern (from a pattern or book) to make the quilt -- as long as it's not a kit and I choose my own fabrics? ...or does the quilt have to be a completely original idea? (I'd give the patternmaker/book credit for the pattern.)

  2. I love how diverse everyone's entries are! The interpretations are all so great!

  3. CANNOT LINK, it says Web page unavailable! ! It's on FB challenge group, hoping you can get it to link from there! Thanks

    1. I'm happy to link for you! Here's my 'How to Link up a Link up' Tutorial: But please don't spend too much time trying to do that ... I'm happy to do the linking for you!
