A closer look and links to the quilts made from the challenges of season 3 of Project QUILTING.
The other day I was starting to get things organized and ready for Season 4 of Project QUILTING to start in just over a month. I had some housekeeping to do since I recently rebranded myself from KimsCraftyApple to Persimon Dreams. I was fixing the Project QUILTING Flickr Group and renamed it to Project QUILTING with Persimon Dreams when I noticed a new project had been added.
Barn Quilt from WaggonsWest
This is the barn quilt I started eons ago in response to one of Kim’s Crafty Apple (recently rebranded to Persimon Dreams)...
Before I get to the first closer look I want to remind everyone that we have a ‘Project QUILTING Critique’ group now too. Since I don’t have judging and personal critiques this season you can add your piece to this group. Here – people are encouraged to critique your piece – the good and the bad. We want to know what you like about our quilt, what you don’t like, what you may have done differently or if you have a technique that would have worked better! Here’s a quick mosaic of the quilts that want to be critiqued from...
Once again I was completely blown away by all the talent and creativity shown by this group! We had 27 amazing quilts created in just one week that were inspired by the ‘Making Music’ Challenge!
And for your hard work you all had your names entered into the hat for prizes as well as added to the bag for the end of the season grand prize drawing. As always my two beauties, Capri and Cedi were the name drawers.
Cedi is sporting a dress made by Wise Sewcial Ties. My girls both have quite a few of her dresses in their...

I’ve always loved the bright pop of a red door on a house, especially up against a relatively simple wall… I made this wall hanging (about 12″ square) using gray “siding” and a bright red door, and photographed it hanging on my brown HOA approved door…...
So far I’ve gotten a lot of positive feed back on my ‘closer look’ posts. I think this a great way to get the story behind each quilt without feeling so overwhelmed on the flickr group – I mean we did ONLY have 33 entries this past week! Let me know what you think of these closer looks! Should I keep doing them for future challenges?

Details, Details! is my entry for Challenge 1, Season 3 of Project Quilting. I was inspired by the art deco details on a building downtown.
This quilt was created in Franklin, PA, USA.
I used raw edge fusible appliqué and paper piecing to create the square in a square block that is the feature of this quilt.
The quilt is 18 1/2″ Square.

Inspired by the NMAI, I used canyon colors and windswept shapes. Straight line quilting on the strata fabrics and squash blossoms in the sunlit sections. 15″x24″ The whole piece is freezer paper applique’ and made in Sycamore, IL – far from the southwest, to be sure, but when the snow flies very much on my mind!!
Quilter: Pastor Katie Bishop
Growing up just moments from Washington, D.C. I chose to glean my inspiration for this challenge from the Museum of the American Indian, a newer museum on the...
I’m going to take some time to share with you ALL the projects completed for last weeks challenge. Since there is no ‘Public Vote’ this season, I don’t have to do them all in one post – in fact, since there were so many I’m probably going to do it in about 6 or 7 parts.
I hope you enjoy these quilts and as your looking at them and reading there story – remember, these were all created in just ONE week! Bravo to everyone!
The second challenge will be posted next Sunday, January 22nd at NOON!

****Drum Roll Please*****
Things were a bit crazy with picking names this week. Jared and I were at an apple convention and had to get the girls bathed and fed in a much shorter than typical time period – hence the drawing of the names at dinner with wet hair.
Thanks again to all my amazing Sponsors! AND to everyone who made a quilt for this weeks challenge! We had 32 projects submitted – a new record!
Please remember that in order to have your name added to the hat the piece must follow all the rules including be a completed...
