Today we’re launching the Modern Traditional Mini Quilt Challenge!
(For a handy one-page PDF of the challenge guidelines, click HERE.)
We’re challenging you to make a “modern traditional” mini quilt that that uses fabrics from both Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures. You’ll have all of April to complete and submit your project.
Joining us are two of our favorite celebrity quilters, Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts and Katy Jones of Monkey Do. Julie and Katy will be judges of the #DSTTchallenge, along with a judge from each of the Dear Stella and Timeless teams.
When the challenge concludes, Julie and Katy will be sharing their own “modern traditional” mini quilt interpretations. We can’t wait to see what they dream up!
1. Finished mini quilt must measure 20″ x 20″.
2. Mini quilt must use only Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures fabrics — at least 2 prints from each company.
3. No solids may be used in the mini quilt.
4. Mini quilt should reflect your interpretation of the theme “modern traditional.”
1. Email a photo of your finished entry to DSTTchallenge@gmail.com by 11:59pm April 30, 2014. Winners will be announced Friday, May 2.
2. Submit no more than 3 photos of your entry (1 that shows the full quilt, and up to 2 detail shots). Photos should be clear and in focus, and medium-to-high resolution.
3. Include a ruler or tape measure in the photo of your finished quilt, so we can ensure your project measures the specified dimensions (20″ x 20″).
