Giving Project Quilting Season 11 a Try
Project Quilting Premise
Project Runway has a couple of big fans in Sue and me. We have been watching it for years . . . since the very beginning, I believe. Someone by the name of Kim Lapecek at Persimon Dreams had a brilliant idea for Project Quilting. Rather than a day to finish a garment challenge, the premise is similar to Runway except that you are given a week to finish a quilt/fabric project.
Project Quilting Week
One week to finish a whole project you say?! Depending on the challenge assigned, we all know that it is very possible and doable. Why would one subject themselves to the stress and/or pressure? I often think that same question when watching the inspirational show, Project Runway. I cannot say why I want to . . . but I do. Thankfully, Sue said sure . . . why not?! What’s one more project that isn’t on The Master List?!
Personally, I think The Master List is a bit short with only 40 items on it. It’s just asking for new items to be added to it.
We missed the first challenge for this eleventh season. Darn it – I hate coming in after the beginning of anything. But late to the party we are, and now we are ready for the second challenge. It will be released on Sunday, January 19th and just thinking aloud, it is rather on the path of a “mystery squirrel” project. Mystery, because you have no idea what the challenge may be and Squirrel because you definitely have to drop everything else and work on it. Sounds fun!
Check out the links above for more information. Kim has lined up numerous sponsors which are very impressive to validate the entire concept. More later, gators.
