The rules for this challenge are easy. The main idea is to think outside the box, explore and create and have FUN! Since it is a miniature quilt challenge the finished quilts should be between 14"x14" and 24"x24". You may make them rectangular, square, oval, circular, star shaped, etc. However it is you want to do it. Take one character from the book and turn them into a mini quilt. For instance, maybe Lula reminds you of bold colors and animal prints--run with it. Or maybe Ranger is army camoflage or a quilt made with lucisous chocolate brown velvet.
You can use traditional blocks, applique (hand or machine), paper piece, etc. Quilts may be embellished with sew on accents (like beads, etc).
Use any character from any book in the series, which include but are not limited to:
The deadline for your quilt's completion for this challenge is December 31st 2009. You have almost a whole year to be creative! Also, bear in mind that it's not a swap so no pressure. No one will see your quilt but you, and us if you chose to share pictures!
If you want in on this challenge, just leave a comment with your e-mail address (in the format of soandso AT somewhere DOT com) and let me know. I'll add you so that you can post on this blog with pictures of fabric choices, quilts in progress, finished projects, etc. You can make one quilt, or many! Whatever floats your boat.
If you are interested in watching the progress of the challenge, or just LOVE the Stephanie Plum books, or are just plain nosy... feel free to follow this blog with NO obligation to make any kind of quilt whatsoever.
Also, feel free to take one of the graphics from the side bar to add to your personal blog as a link back here so that others may join in!
