Scrappy September–an Off Season Project QUILTING Challenge

I’m late!  It’s already September 7thand I haven’t posted this months off-season Project QUILTING Challenge!  Sorry to you all but considering I only give you a week during the regular season you’ll still have plenty of time to get a quilt made before September 30th!

1.  The challenge for September is “Scrappy September.”  Pull out those scraps and make something fabulous!  Maybe even make a scrappy quilt for this that also meets the requirements for the Scrap Quilt Challenge?  I love knocking two things off my list with one project!

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 (September 7th, 2017 through September 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 September 7th, finished by September 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.

5. Link up a blog post, flickr image, instagram post, or public facebook post to the linky at the bottom of THIS PAGE by Saturday, September 30th, at 11:55pm CDT. Alternately, you may email the picture and description to {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line by Noon on Friday, September 29th. Yes - that deadline is earlier because it requires more work for Kim (which she is FINE with) but she has an apple orchard to run and won’t have time to link up after Friday night.

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 #pqoffseason 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!

Be sure to LINK UP your finished projects by 11:55pm on September 30th!
