The lovely Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts has set up a fun, new sewing contest- the Modern Mini Challenge at Ellison Lane Quilts.
The Modern Mini Challenge is a 5 week series that kicks off with some seriously inspiring work from some super talented bloggers and me.
I've never done a blog hop before and I'm a bit nervous, but this looks great, and I don't know if I already mentioned the super dooper prizes......
So here’s how it will work:
2/6/12 - 2/19/12
Weeks 1 & 2 - Inspiration Weeks - Modern Mini Challenge Blog Hop
Bloggers share their modern minis and kick-start your creativity. Get inspired, get creative, get those ideas flowing!
2/20/12 - 3/4/12
Weeks 3 & 4 - Sew. Sew. Sew!
Work on those minis and create your Modern Mini Challenge piece.
3/5/12 - 3/9/12
Week 5: Enter the Contest!
Link up your Modern Mini Challenge piece at Ellison Lane Quilts. Voting begins that week and winners are announced on March 9th!
Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Get out your sketch book because you don't want to miss your chance to win on of the 5 fabulous prizes. (Um, yes- you read that correctly- FIVE!)
A BIG THANKS goes out to Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop for generously sponsoring all five of our fabulous prizes.
The five winners will be chosen as follows:
James’ choice (Jennifer's husband chooses his favorite)
Viewer’s choice Mug Rugs
Viewer’s choice Mini Quilts
(mug rugs and mini quilts- the viewers choose from a selection chosen by Jennifer and three other bloggers)
Luck of the Draw (Random Number Generator chooses 2 winners)
So what are those fabulous five prizes? Hold on to your hats!
Both Viewer’s Choice Winners will receive a fat quarter bundle of the FULL LINE of Flea Market Fancy reprint by Denyse Schmidt.
James’ Choice Winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop
Both Luck of the Draw Winners will receive a $75 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop
