Project Quilting Off Season Challenge

The second season of Project Quilting is finished but it will be back soon for season 3. In the meantime, there will be some off-season challenges. There are no prizes for these challenges but you do have a month to complete them. Here’s the first off-season challenge.

“It’s All In Your Initials”

This challenge is all about using your initials to determine what colors you can use.

1. You must use all three or four of your colors in your quilt or project.

2. It doesn’t have to be a quilt.

3. You may use as many fabrics as you want; just no more than 3 or 4 colors.

4. You may not add any other colors to your piece except when embellishing. Embellishing isn’t required but it is always fun.

5. Project may be any size.

6. Project must have a name.

7. In your story, list your initials and your color choices. Be creative!

8. Please remember that these projects need to be created during the time frame of the challenge.

9. If you need advice/tips/help (or you just want to give us all a sneak peak) with your project as you work on it feel free to post pictures to the flickr group: Project Quilting WIP: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1430386@N24/

10. Post your entries with a description of your creative process, including where you are and the size of your project by to the flickr group Project Quilting with KimsCraftyApple: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1401824@N21/ OR email a picture/description of your completed project to {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with "Project Quilting" in the subject line.

11. Since we’re in ‘off season’ we aren’t having prizes/judges etc but if you do want people to truly critique (the good and the bad) your project post it to the Flickr Group: Project Quilting Critiques: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1628629@N24/

The deadline for this challenge is Sunday, May 8, 2011, at noon, CDT.
