Custom Quilts made in 2020

Well 2020 sure was an unusual year. And even with extra down time I still wasn't able to complete all of the items on my "To Do" list. But instead of focusing on what I didn't do, let me share some of the things I did do this year. 

Yes, I did make a few masks, but I also made quite a few custom quilts. Most of them I've already shared but there are two t-shirt quilts that were gifts, so they haven't been shared yet. You can click on the photos to see larger views and except for the two t-shirt quilts, all the other images have links below them to the original posts in case you want to read more or see more photos.

Quilts made from vintage quilt tops: 3 throws, 1 table runner, 4 pillows, 1 wall hanging, and a queen sized bed quilt.

Project Quilting Season 12


It's time for Project Quilting's twelfth season! It's a three month on-line event that challenges participants to create a quilt in one week, with a week off in between. You can participate in as few or as many as you like. Participants are entered into random prize drawings and at the end of the season there are grand prizes awarded. The more challenges you enter, the better your chances.

I've participated in every year in some form or another (and I was the overall grand prize winner of Season 2). Some of my favorite quilts that I've made were Project Quilting challenges.

The schedule for when the challenges start is:
- Challenge 1: January 3
- Challenge 2: January 17
- Challenge 3: January 31
- Challenge 4: February 14
- Challenge 5: February 28
- Challenge 6: March 14

Each challenge is posted at noon CDT and due exactly one week later at noon CDT.

Here's a post with some tips about how to participate.

The challenge will be posted on the "Persimon Dreams" Project Quilting blog and you can also find links about past seasons there.
