Annual Fabric ChallengeJust like last year, the dues from when we were a guild bought us a kitty of fabric for a challenge! This year the bundles are all solids. You will receive 6 fat eighths with which you can make your challenge piece.
There are very few rules, but here are just a couple to keep you on your toes...
1. The item must be quilted in a three-layer sandwich, but it doesn't have to be a quilt (a bag, tote, pillow, notebook cover, are all ok!)
2. Please use ALL the fabric this time. Challenge yourself even if there's a color that doesn't work, but its ok if its on the back or binding. And no, I'm not suggesting you must use every tiny scrap, just include some of each fat eighth.
3. You can add any fabric to the project, solids or prints.
Deadline for the Fabric Challenge is APRIL 21, 2016.
Finish it Up ChallengeYes, yes, we all have our to do lists and UFOs! Let's get them done together, with a little co-motivation! Make a list of the projects you have on your plate right now. Download a List-maker-helper here (optional). Choose the top 3 priority projects you intend to have done in the next 6 months. Bring your whole list to the meeting to share and post your top 3 as a comment on this page.
Then throughout the next DSMMQG meetings, bring your finished projects to show and tell (preferred!) or post them in our facebook group!
You will receive one entry into the Finish-it-up Prize Drawings for every project on your top 3 list you finish! To qualify, you must mention the Finish-it-up challenge when you bring your project to show and tell or post it on the Facebook Group. Prizes will include fabric bundles, fat quarters and more (TBA).
Final Finish-it-up Deadline is JULY 21, 2016.
