    Traditional piecing means traditional designs like Half Square Triangles or a 9 patch or any quilt that uses traditional methods.
    This does NOT include paper piecing or applique or art quilts.

    If you have a question on what is and isn't allowable contact Patrice or myself at patchesbyr@yahoo.com

    If this goes over well I hope to continue this. The prizes will vary if we can continue to do more contests.

    Well I was thinking of quilts already made but I can change the time frame if that would help. I wasn't really thinking of making up new quilts. I guess I should have. This is my first time doing this of course so I will learn as I go!!

    That's my problem too.
    This sounds like some good fun and to see what the other contestants have made.

    Rhonda can you extend the deadline for making the new quilt entry?

    The size is a question, what specifics on the size for the lap.
    And it has to be finished (quilted with binding) ?

    Yep you all caught me in my weakest part! I don't make big quilts! LOL But I have already discussed it with Patrice and she is going to change the dates for me. I will allow a month so where it says June just substitute July until Patrice gets it changed!

    I do apologize for not thinking this through! But I am glad to have feedback cause that is how I learn!! I am a trial and error gal and don't have a problem with someone pointing things out that should be changed.

    Thanks so much everyone!! So now you can go plan what you want to make to enter!!
