MONTHLY CHALLENGE CONTESTS

Every month there's a different opportunity to exercise your creative juices and win prizes.

Below you'll find challenges sponsored by myself and great manufacturers. Simply follow that challenge's rules,

take an overall picture and at least one detail photo of your piece, and email to me at the email addresss listed on that particular challenge.

Some contests require entree fees,  and may provide fabric packets or patterns provided here.

Some entries will be selected to become part of exhibits at national level quilt festivals.
