The Challenge - Making Music

  1. Choose a song title for your inspiration.
  2. Your project can be any size or shape.
  3. Your project must have a name. It can be the same as the name of the song, but does not have to be.
  4. Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge.
  5. 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, January 29th, 2012, at noon (well 12:06 since I’m slightly late…), CDT, to this flickr group – Project QUILTING with KimsCraftyApple: OR email a picture/description of your completed project to {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line.
  6. If you wish to receive critiques on your piece – the good and critical – please add your photo’s to this group as well:
  7. Are you stuck?  Need a little ‘Tim Gunn’ advice during the week?  Or are you just so excited on how things are going along and what to share your WIP?  We have a group for that!
  8. If this is the first Project Quilting challenge you've participated in, please email Kim at {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line so that Kim can keep you updated on the behind the scenes going-ons.

    If you want your name to be entered into the drawing for the prizes your piece has to follow ALL the rules – including being a FINISHED quilt and completed within the allotted time.

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 and of course, HAVE SOME FUN!

Thanks for inspiring us!

This sounds like so much fun! Unfortunately, I don't have nearly enough time to participate, especially being a beginning quilter (i.e. I've never actually made a quilt...yet lol). Maybe someday. Have fun everyone and I can't wait to see the results!
