Another round of great projects. Congratulations to all of you. You are all winners in my book. Kim and I had a discussion yesterday and she says I'm the Simon Cowell of Project Quilting. I have made it a point to include all the thoughts I have about your project. Some you may agree with and some you may not. That's Ok...it's only my opinion. I love to see quilters grow, both technically and artistically. and we have seen much of that here.

This week’s Judges!
Now for the challenge…
Challenge 3 – Be My Valentine
Now, to mix things up a bit. I am hearing lots about Valentine's Day on the radio and in the ads, so decided we'd work with it for Challenge 3.......with a few twists, of course. After all, anyone can make a Valentine quilt. In Project Quilting, we want something more.
1. The inspiration is Be My Valentine.
2. The main colors of your project will be something other than red or pink. You can use small amounts of red and pink, but the overall color should be something else.
3. You cannot use the word "Valentine" on the front of your project. You may use it in the name if you wish.
4. POST your entries with a description of your creative process, including where you are (ie, I create in Madison, WI) and the size of your project by Sunday, February 13, 2011, at noon, CDT, to this flickr group – Project QUILTING with KimsCraftyApple: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1401824@N21/ OR email a picture/description of your completed project to email@example.com with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line.
5. If this is the first Project Quilting challenge you've participated in, please email Kim firstname.lastname@example.org with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line so that Kim can send you feedback from the judges and keep you updated on the behind the scenes going-ons.
Remember, these challenges are intended to help you Think Outside the Square. Be creative. Take a risk. Do something no one else will think of doing.
