We’ve moved our blog over to Blogspot. You can keep up with all the news there, plus we will be working on adding additional features!
Have a stash that just won’t quit? A Tula Pink fabric fetish and want to play with her fabric? Maybe you just want a reason to sew some simple little blocks each month. If so this challenge is for you!
Each month we are going to feature 10 blocks from Tula Pinks City Sampler book. Follow along and make the blocks using your fabrics. By November you should have all 100 blocks from the book completed. We will then talk about block layout and how to put your quilt together. The book has some examples in the back to get you started thinking about what you would like to do. In December we’ll have show and tell for everyone’s blocks. The shop has two club days available each month for people to come in and work on their blocks. We will gladly help in fabric selection and how to put the blocks together. This is a great way to get to know your fellow quilter.
Use #QM100BlockChallenge to tag your pics.
If you have a blog we’ve made a badge so you can show off your participation in our challenge!
If anyone saw my sewing room they’d know I need a UFO challenge. I have them stuffed in cubbies, stacked in totes and overflowing on what is supposed to be my cutting table. I know this is a common issue for people who love to craft and sew. So, I’ve decided that people can follow the All People Quilt 2016 UFO Challenge in the shop. I will give away some goodies every month to help keep you going.
Here is the idea:
You print out the UFO form (here) and fill it in with your project information.
On the first of each month, All People Quilt will announce a randomly selected number between 1 and 12. That number corresponds with the UFO project that you work on for the month.
At the end of the month share your progress with the quilting community by posting blogs and photos of your projects using hashtag #apqresolution and #QM2016UFOChallenge and tag us @Quilting_Mayhem. To enter for our monthly door prizes you will need to bring in your completed project for us to see and show & tell. Click here for the rules to qualify for monthly drawings in store and a grand prize drawing at the end of the year.
If you decided to participate they’ve created a badge to post on your social media sites to display loud and proud. 🙂
Also, keep in mind that if you are struggling with your UFO’s or if you just want company while you work on them we have a UFO Survivor day or UFO Survivor night monthly at the shop to receive help and encouragement with your projects. It is an unstructured class where we are just here to help you if you need it.
Now all that is left is to get started!!
January you will be working on project number 2!
