Now for the challenge…

Challenge 3 – Be My Valentine


12 Heart mini pottery trinket dishes from firecat

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: OR email a picture/description of your completed project to with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line.

5. If this is the first Project Quilting challenge you've participated in, please email Kim 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.

This no (or minimal) red & pink thing is going to be hard... I'm in no way going "traditional" valentine. I just really like red - and it matches my house.

Quilting Diva said...

ooooh, this is hard - what is valentines day without red and pink? lol!!! I've gotta come up with something ;)

those stuck on colors--how about yellow? or blue and yellow--those can look very feminine together.

or purples. whites, eyelet fabrics,etc

just some thoughts. good luck, I can't wait to see what you create!
