So what’s this Project QUILTING thing I keep hearing about?
I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of Project Runway. I don’t have cable so I always wait patiently for each season to come out on Netflix and then my family knows not to bother me as I watch episode after episode. After watching my first few episodes, I wanted to learn how to make clothes. I know how to sew – so why can’t I make clothes?
After thinking about it for a bit, I decided I really don’t have time for a new ‘project’ right now so I thought more about the show. What do I really like about it? Is it the fashion? Sure, that’s neat but I’m not really a fashion girl. Is it the people? Of course – I absolutely love Heidi and Tim Gunn. But I think my answer is – it’s the challenge. These people are give a task, a few dollars and little time to complete it and they make the most amazing things! I want to do that! I want a challenge – with guidelines for budget, time, and end result.
So how can I make this work for my needs – Project QUILTING of course!
Here’s the deal. Trisha Frankland, a talented quilter and teacher herself, is going to post a ‘challenge’ every-other Sunday at Noon during each Season. You will have one week to complete the challenge and post your pictures in the Project QUILTING Flickr Group, tell your story of how you decided to solve the challenge the way you did. If you want to make a video to go with it – that of course is a bonus!
Everyone that participates has their name entered in a random weekly prize drawing AND in the final Season Grand Prize Drawing. If you want a ‘real critique’ of your piece you can add it to the Project QUILTING Critique Flickr group.
Also, I have to make the disclaimer that I will have NO IDEA as to what the challenge is. I can’t wait to hear what you think about this idea and how many plan on participating – I know I’m excited!
Take a look back…***Coming Soon! I need to relink everything since the move from wordpress - thanks for understanding***
When the first Project QUILTING challenge of the season was announced I had literally finished probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever...
