May I–A May Off Season Project QUILTING Challenge

bleeding heart 2017Hello everyone!  Happy Cinco de Mayo!  I realized this morning that I completely spaced to post the May Project QUILTING Off-Season Challenge for Project QUILTING.  We’re going to keep it simple and stick with the wide open theme…

May I?

That’s it – May I?  Simple.  Feel free to interpret “May I” however you’d like.  Make it whatever size you like. 
Consider adding a few personal rules of your own for these off season challenge – like all 24-inch quilts, or each one must have a flying geese block in it somehow, or they all have to be star wars themed … etc.  Just share in your post how it was inspired by “May I” and anything else you want folks to know about your piece.

THE RULES:

1. Your project should be inspired by the phrase “May I?”
2. Incomplete or unfinished does not qualify. Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline (May  5th, 2017 through May 31, 2017). Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes. 
3. Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge (started on or after May 5th, finished by May 31st)
4. Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements:
  • Include patchwork.
  • Include appliqué.
  • Have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine. 55
5. Link up a blog post, flickr image, instagram post, or public facebook post to the linky at the bottom of THIS PAGE by Wednesday, May 31st, 2017, at noon CDT. Alternately, you may email the picture and description to {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line by 11am on Wednesday, May 31st, 2017. Yes - that deadline is one hour earlier because it requires more work for Kim (which she is FINE with).
When you create your PQ entry's blog post or instagram or flickr image, please include:
  • a description of your creative process,
  • the overall size of your project (it's so hard to tell in a picture!)
  • where you are (ie, I create in Lodi WI)
If you decide to just directly upload your image to the link up party please email Kim {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} this information so she can share it with everyone else.

SOCIAL MEDIA LINKING:

Please use the hashtag #pqSeason8 when posting on social networking sites to help spread the word about this fabulous quilting challenge!

Share progress pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and your blog - seeing your process and how you get to the final project is part of the fun!

If you can, post your project to the Project QUILTING Flickr Group because that's how I make mosaics and it's fun to see them grouped together there.

Make sure you like Project QUILTING on Facebook.

We have created a ‘Challenge Quilts’ Facebook Group for you to share your thoughts, questions, and friendship on PQ and other quilting challenges. Just ask to join.

With that – good luck and have fun!
