I thought I would share a few things going on in the world of crazy quilting with you all.
First, I want to congratulate Nina Burnsides! I am a huge fan of her work and was delighted to see that she was featured on the cover of the Autumn 2017 Crazy Quilt Quarterly.
Submissions for the Spring 2018 edition are now being accepted. Learn more here.
Pamela Kellogg has also released the 2018 Crazy Quilt Calendar. Sadly, there were not enough entries for the musical themed contest. The blocks that were submitted will be featured in the Winter 2017 Crazy Quilt Quarterly. The 2018 calendar features Pamela Kellogg's gorgeous work.
Artist's Trading Cards Crazy Quilt Style Swap
The staff of the Crazy Quilt Quarterly have organized an Artist's Trading Card (ATC) Swap. There are specific guidelines to follow, but they are all clearly stated. The staff of the CQ Quarterly are hoping to have at least 300 ATCs swapped. Photos of each ATC will be shared in a special edition of the magazine and 6 of the ATCs will be featured on the front cover. It sounds like great fun. Please read all of the details here.
If you missed it, Sharon at Pintangle.com is hosting a 2020 Challenge. The idea is to create a crazy quilt by the year 2020 that features 2,020 different items. You may find more details about the challenge here.
Sharon is also sharing free patterns for each of the hexagon blocks she creates for the challenge. I love her work! You may see her blocks here.
A Fabric Book Group
One question that has frequently come up in the Crazy Quilting groups I belong to is: How do I make a fabric book?
Sharon of Pintangle.com has set up a Facebook Group specifically for those interested in learning how to create fabric books. You may find more details and a link to the Facebook group here.
Are you participating with the 2020 Challenge? The Fabric Book Group? Or the ATC Swap? If so, please let me know!
I am sending prayers and positive thoughts to everyone in areas facing flooding, hurricanes and fires right now. Safe wishes.
