Happy October everyone!  Whoa … it’s October 9th already!  Whoops!  Oh well – good thing these Off Season Project QUILTING challenges are just for fun and inspiration!

1.  The challenge for October is “Orange October.”  We’re going to celebrate an underappreciated color by making quilts that “read” orange!

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 (October 9th, 2017 through October 31st). Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes.

3. 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 Tuesday, October 31st, 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 Tuesday, October 31st.

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.

SOCIAL MEDIA LINKING:
  • 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!

  1. Your quilt is stunningly beautiful! I’ve made several table runners, but they were definitely not a challenge. Will challenge items be the only type that could win?

    1. Thank you! The only way to enter a project for this is if you created it because it was inspired by the current challenge and was started and finished during the time frame of the challenge as indicated in the post. Hope this clears things up a bit.
