2013 Q&N “Paint Chip” Challenge!!!

Hostess:  Cindy
Co-Hostess:  Jess
 

It’s time for another Quilt & Needle Challenge!  Have you got your quilty thinking cap on?  I’m sure many of you have heard of Paint Chip Challenges, and I hope that this challenge will be an awesome way for getting you out of your comfy “color” zone.   

Each quilter who accepts this mission will be sent a Paint Chip card of the Hostess’ choice (that would be moi!).  There will be 3 colors on each card – you can use fabrics in any or all of the colors on that card - you can add fabrics of your own choosing that coordinate with your card colors - HOWEVER, your card colors MUST BE the focus of your quilt.  Example:  let’s assume that you like scrappy quilts and that you receive a “purple” paint chip card.  You can use as wide a variety of fabrics to achieve the scrappiness you like in a quilt but when I look at your quilt, I must see the “purples” from your card, not mere glimpses of your card purples.   Other than the color requirements, there are no other restrictions – let your imaginations soar as to your design, pattern, type of project, etc.

SIGN-UPS FOR THIS CHALLENGE ARE CLOSED! 

Pictures of finished projects will need to be submitted by Midnight Central time, Friday, June 28th, 2013.  To qualify as a “finished project”, anything lap-size quilt and larger only needs to have the top finished, it does not have to be quilted and bound – anything smaller than a lap-quilt (i.e. wall hanging, quilted bag/purse, etc.) should be completely finished.  Photos may be submitted one of three ways:  (1) Posting the photo on the Forum’s Challenge thread. (2) Posting the photo on the Quilt and Needle’s Challenge Event wall. (3) Emailing the photo to me at cindy@thequiltandneedle.comThis deadline will give everyone well over FIVE months to work on their projects, so PLEASE do not ask for extensions of the deadline – it is not fair to those quilters who have finished their chosen projects by the deadline and any extension requests will NOT be considered.

I will set up polls/albums of all finished projects on both the Forum and Facebook after the pictures have been submitted and let our Forum and Facebook members vote on their favorite project!  Blog followers will be directed to either/both of these sites to cast their vote.  Criteria for voting will be how closely the quilter “showcases” the colors on her Paint Chip card as well as the creativity of her project.  Voting will end at 5:00 P.M. Central on Friday, July 5th, 2013.  Votes from both the Forum poll and the Facebook poll  will be added together to determine the Challenge winner and first runner-up.  The winning quilter will receive a $50.00 gift certificate from the Quilt and Needle.  The first runner-up quilter will receive a $25.00 gift certificate from the Quilt and Needle.

So . . . who’s ready to step out of their quilty coloring zones?

I've been gone so long, I'd be surprised if anyone here remembered me. However, since I've never made a quilt just for me, this challenge might be the one to bring me out of my quilty hibernation. Hmm.

Eh. What the heck. PM on its way, Cindy.
