Quilt Along hosted by Lynx2Lancer and AudiobookLover
Welcome to our cozy quilt space where we share our quilting works in any stage of our quilting game! This is a place for quilters of all skill levels, working on any project or quilting style to gather! Whether you like to quilt blankets, make mini or art quilts, quilted bags, or make smaller projects like mug rugs, this is for you. Paper piecing, traditional piecing, free form quilting, hand quilting, you name it…you’re in!
Besides sharing your quilting journey, we will have fun prompts, challenges, and Blocks of the Month, with a chance to win prizes by participating! Prizes will range from Amazon/Etsy gift card to a quilting supply. The more tickets you earn, the better your change of winning the quarterly challenge prize! These will be offered by AudiobookLover and Lynx2Lancer.
Prompts: Each month there will be an inspirational prompt. When you complete a prompt, you will be given a ticket into our quarterly prize drawing.
Challenges: Every quarter (every 3 months) we will host a challenge. You can enter one item of each size (small, medium, or large) to earn tickets for the challenge. You can participate in the challenges even if you do not complete final quilting yourself, but your quilt top is complete. You can enter a quilt top/pieced mini quilt as a challenge entry even if you have not finished the project. If you want to wait and count it as a larger (time wise) challenge, that works too.
Small: Something that takes you less than 10 hours to sew and quilt. (1 ticket)
Medium: Something that takes you 10-20 hours to sew and quilt. (2 tickets)
Large: Something that takes you 20 or more hours to sew and quilt. (3 tickets)
Group Nominated Block of the Month: Each month we will have a quilt block nominated by a group member that you can make with your own fabric choices. The goal is that if you complete one block each month, by December you will have enough to make a nice sized quilt top to show off to the group. You get 1 ticket per month to our prize drawing, for completing a BOM during the month it is hosted.
