June Buggy–An Off Season Project QUILTING Challenge

I can’t believe it’s already June!  My girls have 3.5 days of school left so I have 3.5 days left to sew and write uninterrupted!  Right now I’m rushing to get teacher gifts made.  You can watch the progress I’m making on the handprint quilt for Pip’s teacher in my Instagram Stories and photos.  (I’m PersimonDreams on Instagram).

We had 10 quilts made in May for the “May I” challenge plus a few more that just didn’t link up on time – no worries!  I’m adding another link up so those that are still inspired by the theme “May I” can share there project!  Just head over to the “May I” post here and scroll to the bottom to find it.

Let’s see what challenge is in store for you this June -

1. Your project should be inspired by the theme “June Buggy”.  Feel free to interpret that however pleases you.

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 (June 1st, 2017 through June 30th, 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 June 1st, finished by June 30th)
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 Friday, June 30th, 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.

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!
