Super scrappy scrap quilt by @tendstowardschaos
It’s the third year of our Quiltalong! This cozy, quilty space is the place to share all things quilt related, regardless of your skill level. We are here to encourage and hopefully inspire you! Come share your quilting journey with us, we can’t wait to see what you create!
On top of sharing our projects, we will have fun prompts, challenges, and Blocks of the Month that you can participate in for a chance to win prizes! Additionally, you can also win prizes just by finishing the quilted projects you want to work on! Prizes will range from Amazon/Etsy gift cards to a quilting supply. The more tickets you earn, the better your chance of winning the quarterly challenge prize! Prizes will be provided by AudiobookLover.
Prompts: Each month there will be an inspirational prompt. The prompts this year will include a variety of different piecing and quilting techniques. 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) entry, that works too.
Personal Finish: Why be limited by the prompts and challenges? Any finish deserves to be celebrated. Each quarter, you can enter one item of each size (small, medium, or large) to earn tickets. This includes everything from quilt blocks to completed quilts.
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 new member nominated block that you can complete using your own fabric choices. The goal is to have enough blocks by the end of the year to create a nice sized quilt top that you can then show off to everyone in the Quiltalong. If you complete BOM during the month it is hosted, you will earn 2 tickets. You can also earn 1 ticket by completing the monthly block outside of it’s hosted month (ie. if you complete the March block during the month of March, you get 2 tickets. If you complete the March block during a different month, you get 1 ticket).
Goal List: Please share your quilty goals for this quarter. For each goal that you accomplish, you will receive an extra ticket to the Quiltalong prize drawing. This can be in combination with other tickets that you may earn with your quilted project (ie. - on your list of goals you have “Complete 2022 BOM quilt.” Once you complete this goal (and post it as a ticket entry), you will earn a ticket to the prize drawing. You can also submit your 2022 BOM quilt as a personal finish or prompt/challenge entry.
