Weekly Themed Quilt Contest: Scrappy Quilts

weekly quilt contest

The theme for this week’s contest is Scrappy. This is one of our most popular contests and my favourite too. You can submit quilts, wall hangings, pillows, etc., that are pieced or appliqued, as long as the item you enter is completely finished (i.e. bound and quilted).

Please do not submit a quilt you’ve already entered in one of my contests in 2012. We want to see different quilts for this competition. Your entry does not have to be something you’ve completed this year.

Our friends from the Fat Quarter Shop are back as this week’s sponsor and they’ve donated two $35 gift certificates for the top two quilters with the most votes over the weekend.

What quilter and fabric enthusiast doesn’t have a nice fat fabric stash waiting to be used. Sometimes it is hard to use up all of your scraps, but it is even harder to throw them away! Lucky for you, this week’s theme is scrappy quilts, and you now have an excuse to open up your scrap stash and get to quilting.

After you finish your scrappy quilt, you will probably be in need of some fresh new fabric! The Fat Quarter Shop is donating two $35 gift certificates to get a fabric refill, and get ready for your next quilting adventure!

Good luck!
