Friendship Star–A Focus Through the Prism Project QUILTING Challenge, June

Can you believe it’s time for the second ‘Focus Through the Prism’ Project QUILTING Challenge!?  SEVENTY amazing quilts were made during the first round and I'm beyond impressed!  If you can, take a few minutes to visit, read the stories, and comment on all the amazing work done.  Let's support each other and make this seven months series not only about a challenge of quilting but of a community from all over the world coming together to cheer each other on. They are all linked HERE


I made this quilt for a previous Project QUILTING challenge - please remember though that your finished quit needs to be a finished 20" square.


I know you’ve all been waiting so patiently for this moment and I thank you for all your enthusiasm!  To go over the story behind the challenge be sure to check out THIS POSTand of course the FAQ post

And if you didn't finish the quilt for May that doesn't mean you can't join in now!  You can even still order the special ROYGBIV Cherrywood Fabric Bundle!

The Inspiration Block:  Friendship Star!


  
  • Each final project should read predominantly as one color in the spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet. You may not use the same color as you used in a previous challenge.
  • A ROYGBIV hand-dyed color bundle of fabric must be purchased from Cherrywood Fabrics.
  • You must use ONE fabric from the ROYGBIV challenge bundle in each quilt which should correspond with the color you want your quilt to ‘read’.
  • Any other fabrics from your stash may be added.
  • You must use the month's block as your inspiration.
  • Quilts must finish 20” square.
  • Share the story behind your quilt and how the block ‘Friendship Star’ was the inspiration.

    • Don't use Instagram/Flickr/or blog?  Email me:  lapaceksorchard {at} gmail {dot} com a picture and description of your project and I'll link up for you.

Other info … 
    • I would still love if everyone posted to the Flickr Group as that makes making mosaics and looking over things much easier, but it is no longer required.
    • There is now a ‘Focus Through the Prism’ Facebook Group and a ‘Challenge Quilts’ Facebook Group you can join in on to share your thoughts, questions, or whatever related to quilting challenges.  You can always post progress pictures there if you want too!
    • Haven’t ordered your bundle yet?  No worries!  Order now!  You can join in on all seven or just one challenge!
    • Please use the hastag #pqoff #focusthroughtheprism #roygbiv when posting on social networking sites to help spread the word.
    • Prizes! There will be a grand prize at the end … more details to come.  In the meantime – check out THIS POST for details about the randomly drawn prizes given out each month just for completing the challenge!
    • I put together a tutorial called 'Trellis Friendship Star' if you would like the inspiration.
