    New contest!-- accessories contest! Enter july 1st-july 10th

    Accessories Contest


    Any style any technique!



    Best of show - $20

    Suggestions for Accessories - something you might carry or wear as an accessory

    Purses / Billfolds /Checkbook covers / Key chains / Cell phone Case /Tote bags / Diaper bags / Makeup kit / Scarves you would wear(not for furniture) and if you have a suggestion just run it by me first before you make it so I can approve or not.

    If you made a pieced or appliqued wearable entry such as a vest I would consider it an accessory as long as it is quilting of some sort

    I have a big bin of fabrics and findings to make totes, reusable shopping bags etc. - does the entire project need to be quilted, or can it have some unquilted areas and some quilted areas? Some of my fabrics are home dec or outdoor canvas, could be tricky to try to quilt something like that!

    No it doesn't have to be quilted. That's fine.

    I was looking around, and had never really read about this area on the board. I understand all the entry rules, but do those taking part send in the pictures with their instructions of all their steps, or do they actually also send in the finally finished item to be judged?
    Thanks - I just wanted to know so if I ever decide to enter one.

    The entry is yours to keep. You just send in a picture or pictures of what is required so they can be posted for everyone to vote on. Usually in the case of a quilt we have people send in the front of the quilt the back of the quilt and a couple of close ups. Since that isn't possible with one quilt block I posted a progress picture instead. You don't need to send directions just the pictures.

    Yes I'll allow it. I said something you carry and I guess you carry a Kindle so okay.

    Sorry I had 4 grandkids over the weekend the youngest being my Avatar Colton who is 17 mos. Yes I was busy and then we took them to my sons for a grill out yesterday for supper. I spent time with my 4 great grands there also Serenity 5 mos and Adrianna 2 1/2 Jayden 3 1/2 and Alisha 6. I hadn't seen Serenity for a couple of months and Adrianna or Bug as they call her I hadn't seen since before Christmas.

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I think the apron would be fine as I said anything you wear or anything you carry. I think the hotpad I will do a contest just for them. So if you want to hold it back I will post one for them in another month or two. I am thinking maybe that would be a good one to allow more than one entry. Not set in stone yet but it is a possibility
