Fat Quarter Challenge

Are you up for a challenge?

Lori and I decided to host a Fat Quarter Challenge. The object of this challenge is to see how many things you can make using one fat quarter (or an equivalent size piece of fabric, 18 x 22"). You will have slightly more than a month to complete this challenge. All projects must be completed by April 15, 2007. At the end of the challenge, there will be a giveaway. It will be random. Everyone who participates will have her (or his) name entered into the drawing.

Are you interested? If so, leave a comment or email us. Lori even set up a flickr group for the occasion. And there's a button for your sidebar.

Here are some of the things I've made using one fat quarter:



Hope this inspires you to use the little itty bitty pieces of fabric scraps that you have lurking around. We can't wait to see what you make!
A little clarification: You may use other fabrics with the fat quarter. Just try to use as much of the total fat quarter as possible, leaving as few scraps. You can applique, patchwork, etc. Just see how far you can stretch that fat quarter. How many projects can you incorporate that fat quarter? Good luck.

I wish I had some time to dedicate to this - I am always trying to figure out how to clean out my fat quarter stash.

Maybe next time.

For now, I will look at your Flickr group and rip off some ideas. ;)

Oh my gosh, what is wrong with me? I read this post way back when, never commented on it, and now I'm back after reading about it on Beki's blog. Argh! OK. April 15. I'll see what I can do. Sign me up (i think!!!).
