PostSubject: Spring Challenge 2012 Competition!!   Wed 18 Apr - 19:23

Ok Im thinking its time for a new competion and a challenge as well - gotta make you feel like you really won through hard work, blood, sweat and tears, all those notions!! Back in 2009 we ran a comp and to enter you had to create a quilt block that shows what Spring means to you. It was fun and so I thought 'why not do it again?" I created an album so you can see the blocks created in the 2009 challenge

This year the challenge will remain the same - to enter you will need to create a quilt block, any style - (artistic, pieced, scrappy, appliqued, embroidered etc etc) that depicts spring. When you have created your block you will need to email me a photograph of it, I will post each photo anonymously and then all the members here get to vote once for their favourite block. The winner is the block with the most votes.

The prize? How about this?



Ahhh no darn, I forgot, Im all out of them - sorry, how about a $15 gift certificate from The Book Depository instead! They have free shipping and a lot of great titles.

Competition is open to all members (except moi of course!) You have until May 31st to submit a photo of your block to me, remember to keep it secret from everyone else on here so voting is democratic and fair LOL! I will then post all the photos on the board for members to start voting. I will leave voting open for say, a week to determine a winner.

A little bit of sewing2 = gift2 :readingsmilie:

We did it on here, I just cant find the post and please, dont ask me to go back through 3yrs of posts looking for it, I posted the photos of the entries - doesnt that count somewhat?? LOL It was fun seeing what was created, back in 2008 we set it up so that there was an 'entry fee' every entrant had to promise to send a fat 1/4 to the winner. The winner had a ball receiving all the fun mail at the end.

Put your thinking caps on, FB's got her red one on and is hard at it! Golo is thinking and Im hoping Linda is too!!

When you say " create " Gimpy does that mean it has to be an original you have designed from scratch ?

Henny Penny yes it means you have to design it, could be a regular block done in spring fabrics though, doesnt have to be a totally designed block from scratch. If you take a look in the album you will see there were a variety of blocks entered last time, hope that helps some.

Betweens Im thinking that gold finch block might have been done by CC? I could well be wrong though, I had the block photos all saved with the names for them but I cant find the file, can only find the one wtih the blocks assigned numbers. Hang on, I just went into admin and pulled the stats and found polls, then found the spring one from back then and the thread attached so take a look here to see each block featured with the makers name beneath (& yes it was CC, I remembered something for once, its a miracle!!! LOL)

2008 poll results and blocks with makers names revealed

Qm a single block is just fine.... I just wanted to give you gals incentive... I just happen to see something that I fell in love with and had to do it and it worked for this... the hard part is not sharing it with you gals...

There is no size restrictions and I dont see why it has to be just one block, just make something that represents spring
