Summer Rocks - a June Off Season Project QUILTING Challenge

Hello everyone and happy June!  Yes!  I know I’m late but you’ll still have more time than a normal Project QUILTING Challenge to work on this challenge!  You can join in as many or as few off season challenges as you’d like.  These are purely for fun and inspiration!

How are the off season challenges different from a normal challenge?  The biggest differences are that you get a whole month (or almost a whole month) to complete the challenge and there are no prizes!  These challenges are here for inspiration and camaraderie (are you in the Challenge quilt group yet?)Summer Rocks Project QUILTING Challenge

Summer Rocks!

The June challenge is based off our libraries summer reading program – Reading Rocks! I don’t know about you but our family loves joining in on the summer reading program and the libraries around here do so much to make it fun.  This month – let’s make a quilt inspired by the theme Summer Rocks!  Feel free to interpret it however you’d like.

Summer softballTHE RULES:
1. Your project should be inspired by the theme “Summer Rocks!”
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 4th, 2018 through June 30th, 2018). 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 4, finished by June 30)
4. Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements:summer rocks
  • Include patchwork.
  • Include appliqué.
  • Have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine. 55
5. Link up a blog post, instagram post, or public facebook post to the linky at the bottom of THIS PAGE by Thursday, May 31st 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 Saturday, June 30th. 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, 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.
