If you are unable to go to FoQ this year, why not join in our fun on the Forum to have fun and enter something into a FREE show?
This challenge is open to all forum members, anyone can join in, and enter a quilt, wall hanging, postcard, ATC, bookmark or any other other sewn fabric item. We've decided to make it a little bit more interesting by setting two themes for your entries. You can make whatever you like, but it must reflect the theme of Buildings/Architecture or Celebration. The three categories are 1. Quilts and Wall Hangings, 2. Postcards, ATCs and Bookmarks, and 3.Other for anything else. The judges will choose a winner from each category, and a Best in Show overall winner. There will be small but useful prizes for the winners, so why not give it a go?
To enter, please make an item inspired by one of our two themes, and take a photo of it. Don't upload it here yet, please email it to one of the moderators (Katy, Jan, Tessa or Rosemary), and we will post all the photos when the exhibition opens. As with a real show, we'd like to keep all entries a surprise. In your email, please state the Theme and Category you would like to enter, and please give details of anything which will aid in judging. We'd like to know the reason for making your item and whether you consider yourself to be Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced. The closing date for entries is 1st August 2012.
Any queries, PM Janet, Tessa, Rosemary or Katy, or comment on the PP Online Quilt Show thread.
