Project Quilting 11.2 Challenge Team Update
We are giving the Project Quilting challenge a try. We missed the first challenge but 11.2 (season 11, second challenge) was released on Sunday at noon. I was sort of stalking the website, awaiting rather
impatiently patiently for the announcement. I poked around and checked out many of the sponsors. There are so really cool sponsors . . . but let’s worry about the challenge first. One week to make something with the inspiration for Team Colors.
This is NOT our project! However, we did take inspiration from the fabrics used for a Packers ornament. In spite of Sunday night’s football game, the Green Bay Packers are a team we stand behind. We’re not fair-weather fans. I was a Chicago Bear fan when Jim McMahon was the QB. Wisconsin is very lucky to have many great choices like the Milwaukee Bucks, the Milwaukee Brewers, the UW Badgers, the Admirals (hockey), and many others.
11.2 Team Green and Gold
Packers lover or not, just about everyone knows their colors are Green and Gold. Sue pulled the fabrics for me and marked the “X” and the “+” symbols on the batting for me. What are we making? Why a Team Packers cozy, of course, and the link will take you to a tutorial to make your own.
The next step is to quilt the layers together and sew the darts on all four sides. After that, the right sides of the fabrics are matched together and pinned. Next, a seam was sewn around all four sides leaving a small opening for turning. Finally, the corners are clipped, it was flipped right-sides-out, and then it’s time for top-stitching. The top-stitching serves to close the opening quite nicely.
Team 11.2 Finish
Does anyone need a Packers cozy that handily holds three spools/cones of thread? I am happy to say that we finished the 11.2 Project Quilting one week challenge. It was great fun to participate, and we’ll play along next time. Super Bowl Sunday is the release date for PQ 11.3, which is on February 2. Millions will observe Miami, the Chiefs play against the 49ers, and all of the festivities, including our home. Somehow, I’ll find time to stalk the release again that day. Some photos will be shared on Instagram using the hashtags #projectquilting and #pqSeason11 along with tagging @PerisimonDreams and @QuiltChicken.
Team DrEAMi, Too!
This fun and quick little cozy project also easily qualifies as a DrEAMi project. We definitely Dropped Everything And Made it this week. Sandra at mmmQuilts hosts a monthly linky party that we are thrilled to participate in as often as we can. We’ll be enjoying a Granny Smith apple while checking all the other DrEAMi projects today!
Join us as we host a weekly linky party called To-Do Tuesday.
