Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge for July is Christmas in July!

 

Do you also love making and creating presents for your favorite people? However, when the calendar gets to December, there isn't enough time to get the projects done? I know I'm not the only one. Hence why I'm so excited about Christmas in July!

The December holidays are a time to step back and reflect on how we can show our favorite people we love them. A handmade gift could include a quilt, a new table topper, tree ornament, or so much more with needle and thread.

Whether it's the holidays or a special occasion, handmade gifts are always beautiful to give and to receive.


Stitching someone a homemade present represents dedication. It also represents love because you're taking time out of your busy day to spend time on a project.


Quilting your Legacy means you're leaving lasting sewn projects with love to your favorite people.

Being a Legacy Quilter's entails being a superhero with needle and thread. Not everyone can whip up a quilt in a weekend for the newest baby on the way or take a month or so sewing a wedding quilt, but yet you can.

When reflecting on your past projects, who haven't you have, you made a homemade present for? What project have you been meaning to start or finish but haven't yet? Now is the time.


8 Reasons Why you should give homemade gifts to your favorite people:

1. Unexpected
2. One of a Kind
3. Thoughtful
4. Do what you love
5. A gift they will treasure
6. Share your talents
7. Personalization
8. Present for the person who has everything



Let's see the progress! Start (get crazy and post the middle and end of the project.

What will you create for one or more of your favorite people?

Set your intentions now.


The fine print:

Christmas in July - Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge

Full points when you:

• Use Winter fabrics in your projects
◦ Snow
◦ Santa
◦ Snow person
◦ Winter animals
◦ Fabric or patterns with scarfs, hats, mittens and winter sports and such

You must show your progress. Start with taking a photo of the fabric/ pattern with what you're going to create.

1/2 points if you've started a project and are inspired or re-motivated to finish the project to gift away during the December winter month Holidays. But again, we must see where you're at this moment, then at the end of the month the second photo of your finished project.


What to do next:

Day 1-10 Declare of the Facebook Group, "I'm In" if you're going to participate months challenge.

Day 2-30 Take a photo or write text with your tentative idea (or ideas) of what you're going to create.

Day 31 (or sooner) - Show off what you created within the guidelines by posting a photo.


The process is everything this month. Let's see and be apart of your quilting adventure!


Happy Quilting your Legacy!

Go to Facebook to declare you’re, “in”, then take a photo or write text with your intentions, then let’s encourage and support each other on our monthly challenge. Let’s gooooooo!
