So You Think You Can Quilt...

Leisel at Brown Paper Packages, a blog I enjoy reading, is hosting a "So You Think You Can Quilt" elimination contest. After going back and forth, I finally decided that I'd join in the fun. Considering my current workload this is probably pure folly, but what the heck!

The contest requires that contestants design and create any sized quilt top based on that month's designated theme. We can quilt and bind the quilt, but it is not required. I'm hoping to turn in pictures of completed quilts - goodness knows I don't need more UFOs (UnFinished Objects) lying around the sewing room(s). Once the theme is announced, we have a month to send pictures to Leisel so that she can post them and open up voting. The contest runs ten months, but someone will be voted off each month. Here's hoping I make it at least a couple of months! Leisel will be introducing the contestants soon, so come on over and see what we're up to. I won't be able to post pictures of my progress until after voting is closed each month (to keep things anonymous), but I'm really looking forward to this challenge.
