How would you like to have your sewing project featured in our full page advertisement in the December 2010 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting AND win a $200 gift certificate to your quilt shop of choice?! All you need to do is come up with an original sewing project for the Woodland Friends II collection and send us a sketch of your idea. Projects can be anything you can imagine…from apparel, to home dec, to quilting, to baby, and beyond!
Sketches must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10th. You must use fabric from the Woodland Friends II collection by Ellen Crimi-Trent and yardage must not exceed 3 yards total (this includes backing and binding if your project is a quilt). Please include notes in your sketch indicating which fabrics go where using the numbers listed under each fabric on our website here. Sketches also need to include approximate dimensions (see example). Please also include your yardage requirements for each fabric. Project ideas must be your own–not from a pattern. It is fine to take technical guidance and inspiration from patterns, but you must recreate your own pattern and make it your own. That’s part of the fun anyways–this is all about creating here!
5 finalists will be selected to receive fabric from the Woodland Friends II collection and will be asked to complete their projects using the fabric provided. Finalists will be announced on May 12th. Project yardage will be sent out to the finalists the last week in June and final projects will be due on July 22nd. All 5 projects will be photographed and featured on our blog on July 29th. The winner will also be announced on July 29th. All projects will be returned to finalists to keep.
The Grand Prize Winner will have their project featured in our ad in the December 2010 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting and will also win a $200 gift certificate to their quilt shop of choice!
So get creative, and let’s see what you can dream up! Email us at email@example.com with your sketches and/or questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
