A Goose in the Monkey Wrench–Challenge 6 of Project QUILTING Season 7

With this post … the final challenge of the seventh season of Project QUILTING is revealed. If this is the first time you’re seeing the Project QUILTING Challenges – don’t worry. You can still join in the fun!  All you need is to finish one challenge of the season to have your name in the hat for the grand prize. It’s not too late to be inspired!  It’s been a great season so far and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this last challenge.

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 “Viewer’s Choice” 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?

  1. Ooohhh, fun stuff! Traditional blocks for a 'comfort zone' quilter like me! lol Now THIS I can do ... on it!

  2. Its been a great season! I only wish I didnt have to work during the season. I could develop ideas more thoroughly. We didnt have enough snow this winter. I almost didnt think I would get this last challenge done as I had my back go out Monday and the rest of the week was tough. But Auntie sewed two quilts for Peanut!
