😁 WOW! The 2021 Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge was full of inspiration and motivation! I know where to hang out when I'm not feeling motivated to sew.
Talk about an inspirational, kind-hearted, and supportive group of like-minded quilters.
You've joined this group because of three reasons:
🎉Thank you for joining!! We're over 900 incredible quilters! It's insane! Thank you!
The Monthly Challenge was created to do the following:
🔷 Are you wondering if there's a faster way to bind a quilt? Ask the group!
🔷 Wondering which colors go better together? Ask the group!
👉 For your monthly themed project to be valid, we must insist we see a before photo.
It's already written in the rules, but I will be very strict about seeing at least two or more photos on one project.
😊 When the challenge is announced on the first of the month, gather your thoughts on what you will create. It's the perfect opportunity to view your stash, look through your patterns or even browse Pinterest or the internet for a fun project to construct.
😊 Then, once you're set on the fabric, pattern, and other goodies needed, take a photo and post it on the Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge group page.
📣 We need to see the before photos for two reasons: we want to cheer you on, and second, we want to see inspiration.
If you're like me, you might forget to take it before you start sewing, and that's okay, but when you remember, take a photo of your fabric, pattern, and newly sewn together project.
As we advance, I'll be cautious about seeing before and after photos.
♦️The "after photos" or finished projects are the best part, not only because that's what completes your entry into the $30 drawing to Norton House Quilting. But also, (again) WOW, it's incredible what everyone has been creating!
🙋♀️Please continue to share finished projects within the month's theme that you didn't sew during the month. They won't count for the Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge. However, we could all use extra inspiration and look at beautifully sewn projects. Am I right?
Are you ready for the first Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge??
January's Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge is U.F.O. Projects
Please don't panic. The challenge isn't to create space-themed projects.
U.F.O. stands for Un-Finished Objects.
The best part about U.F.O. is that it is not limited too quilts you started but still needs to finish. Half-sewn table toppers, hand-stitching Christmas projects from many years ago, and so on are all contenders for the month's challenge.
Head to your sewing room, and search for at least three (three because that's the number of projects you can enter into the challenge) sewn projects. These are sewing projects that have been started but not finished. It's okay if you haven't worked on it in months or years.
👉Take this short Yes or No survey with five questions to see if you should complete the project or blast it away. (my only space joke, 🤣.)
♦️The answer might surprise you. So it would be best if YOU answered a hard yes or no question - no, maybe's allowed.
🤩 What do you think? Yes or no? If it's a no, move on to the next.
🚨 Do you need:
📣 Let's come together and stitch up and finish projects taking up space and then gift them to our favorite people or cherish and use the quilted project.
2023 will be the best year yet!!
Cheers to you, Legacy Quilter! It's time we celebrate. 🎉
