A little history:
I am a HUGE fan of the TV show Project Runway, and after watching my first few episodes I right away wanted to learn to make clothes.
When I woke up from that delusion, I pondered for a moment what it was about Project Runway that so attracted me. Is it the fashion? Sure. Is it the people? Of course. But I think my real answer is: IT'S THE CHALLENGE.
These people are given a task, a few dollars and little time to complete it yet they make the most amazing things. I want to do that!
I wanted a challenge – with guidelines for budget, time and end result.

You have one week (until noon the next Sunday) to meet the challenge.
You don't have to send your project anywhere or even change out of your jammies - your completed project is entered by posting it online and then LINKING UP TO THE CHALLENGE POST on my blog:
In addition to the photo, please tell us a bit about your project in your post - give it a name, tell us the dimensions, and perhaps explain the thoughts or process behind your meeting the challenge. Also, because we're all over the world on the internet, please tell us your name and where you live.
Everyone who participates gets their name entered into a random weekly prize drawing AND in the final Season Grand Prize Drawing.
Then we take a week off to do laundry, dishes, etc. (Also, that's when I hold a viewer's choice voting!)
Each "season" of Project QUILTING lasts 12 weeks and includes 6 challenges.
You can participate in all the challenges, or just give one a try.
Additionally, in the "off-season" I sometimes post challenges, just for fun.
