Hello QB members,
A few years ago I purchased the book - Quilt Challenge "what if" ideas for color and design, by Sharyn Craig and Pamela Mostek. I recently retired and now is the time to dive into it and expand my creativity.
I would like to invite you to join me. The QB has approved this challenge.
Please note that due to copyright laws, everyone who participates must acquire their own legal copy of the book. There can be no sharing of any part of the book among participants. This includes quotes, paraphrasing, and no discussion, chat, emailing or private messaging that would enable a person to participate without having the book.
In January we will begin with the first challenge in the book- Quilt challenge "what if " ideas for color and design. Refer to Challenge #1 on pages 8 & 9 for details.
1. Select a fabric similar in color and value to the challenge fabric. Add whatever fabrics you wish.
2. Use the required block and fabric somewhere in your quilt. The idea is to take the block and make it your own. Modification of the block is encouraged.
3.Your challenge project can be any size. This is your challenge, so make it work for you. I plan to make "Warm hug" size quilts for children and seniors.
4. At the end of the month post a photo of your quilt or work in progress for all of us to enjoy and learn from.
As we progress, the challenge participants will decide to continue with challenges in the book, modify them or create our own. Maybe we could use the QB Live Chat to do this? We could set a date and time to meet in the Live Chat to decide on subsequent challenges ? Example: meet in the Live Chat on the 4th Monday of the month at 9 pm EST. Day and time can be selected by challenge participants. Each months challenge details will also be posted in this thread.
Life gets in the way of quilting sometimes. Feel free to join in the challenges when you are able. Do not feel obligated to participate in every challenge.
Please contact me by PM with any questions you have about this challenge.
