Blend Fabrics Hip Holiday Project Challenge Due @ October Meeting

Blend Fabrics has challenged our Guild to create something with their Holiday Line Hip Holiday.  I really don’t think it will be hard with this happy holiday fabric.  Here are the details:

  1. We will be given 10 inch squares of this fabric line in August.  Only this fabric can be used in your project.  The type of solids you can use will be clarified once you get your fabric.
  2. If you need additional fabric, you will have to purchase it.  Currently this fabric can be found online at Fat Quarter Shop or  Fabricworm.com.
  3. Josephine Kimberling is the designer of this fabric.  Here is a blog post where she talks about the fabric line.
  4. The project will be due at the October 17th meeting.
  5. You will be able to keep the finished product.
  6. You can make whatever you like out of fabric.
  7. Your project will be photographed and used on the Blend Fabrics website.  Any photos used will be properly credited.

The coordinators of this event is Allegory Lanham and Darcy Childress if you have any questions please see them at the July meeting.

  1. If you are member of the guild, you can vote.  Even if you didn’t submit a block.
  2. Please, Please, Please ONLY VOTE ONE TIME PER WEEK!  The voting records are showing duplicate votes.  Only your first vote will count and any others will be discarded.  This is done based on IP address, so if you vote from two different IP address to get around the system, you are a meanie cheater pants.  Please keep it fair for everyone involved.
