I've been kicking around the idea of doing a series of 10 solid quilts for a few months now, so I guess today I am making it official! This is going to be a long term project, but it's one that I'm very excited about. I love having a challenge with parameters. The main reason is because it helps me focus! (And that's a very good thing.) Having limits is actually good for cultivating creativity...I've seen it time and time again in my own work. I enjoyed my one-a-day pincushion challenges, and before that, I did the 101 scrap project challenge. (Twice.) I'm looking forward to stepping it up a notch and doing a series of QUILTS.
-I'm going to try to make a series of 10 quilts from solids.
-The quilts can be any size, baby size and up.
-The majority of them will be from the scrap bin, (no shock there!) but I'm allowing myself to supplement with my stash if need be. It would be amazing if I actually ran out of scraps!!!
-They may be quilted by me or by someone else.
-The quilts may also contain shot cottons, linen, chambray, denim and the like, as long as it reads as a solid/near solid.
-I will allow myself to work on other projects as I'm working on this series.
I think that's it! No need to make it complicated! :)
I haven't come up with a good name for my challenge yet, so if you have any great ideas, I'd be interested in hearing them.
No Scrap Left Behind.
Have you ever worked in a series or gave yourself a personal sewing challenge? What did you think? Did you like it? Would you do it again? If you haven't, but would like to, what would your challenge be? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the subject!
Happy Monday to you!
