Happy Sunday everyone!  I don’t know about you but I’ll admit – I’m a little basketballed out – time for some QUILTING!  Twelve fantastic prizes are up for grabs from my AMAZING Sponsors to randomly drawn winners of this weeks challenge.  Don’t forget – every time you enter a challenge your name will be thrown in the hat to win the GRAND PRIZE at the end of the season.  If you haven’t done a challenge before – it’s not too late!  You still have this one last challenge to get your name put in the hat (literally)!  Before we get to this week’s challenge let’s go over the amazing prizes that are being given away this week:

Are you ready for the LAST challenge of Season 3 (I know – it’s bittersweet…)!?  Well – I wont’ make you wait any longer…good luck everyone! 


1.  I'm sure you've all seen the zigzag quilts that are so popular now.  This weeks inspiration is zigzag. 
2.  Your challenge is to go beyond the basic zigzag quilt. Some possible ideas to get you started:
   a.  Make a zigzag quilt, then make it into something else....a bag? a bowl? a plant pat?
   b.  Make a zigzag quilt and transform it by slicing, dicing and sewing back together.
   c.  Interpret zigzag in a different way altogether.
These are just ideas to get you thinking.  Do anything you'd like that's inspired by zigzag.
3.  Any size and shape if fine.
4.  Your entry must have a name.
5.  Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge.
6.  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, March 25th, 2012, at noon, 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.
If you wish to receive critiques on your piece – the good and critical – please add your photo’s to this group as well:
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!
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!

Another great challenge! I coincidently dreamed up a zig zag design late last night and with some tweaking can bring it to another level for this challenge. Thank you for these opportunites to push our creativity!

Oh, and since I so far haven't finished a challenge yet (last week I almost got the top finished), I am starting on this today.
