Blog Hops, Challenges...What's Coming Up?

We all love our Challenges, don't we?
It's so much fun to share and be inspired by our fellow quilters.

 Life gets busy for us all, and planning for them can get overwhelming at times. So my incredible co-hostess for our challenges, Carol from "Just Let Me Quilt" and I have decided to give you all a little extra time to plan and stitch your projects, by knowing what's coming up. Who knows with all the summer fun, it just might spark some great ideas for them, too!

Hosted by me
"When Pigs Fly"
The Challenge...

Time to get those projects out of the bags, bins and closets. PIGS - Projects in Grocery Sacks, UFOS - Unfinished Objects, WIPS - Works in Progress. Come on, you know you’ve got em!

Hosted by Carol 
"Picnic Party"
The Challenge...

Make something to use for a picnic, like a basket or a tote, etc. A square quilt.  50”x50” is the standard picnic size measurement, but any size square works for this hop!

hosted by me
"Call me Crazy"
The Challenge...

Sew something that you wouldn’t normally sew or share something you can’t believe you sewed. We all know that crazy and scary feeling of wondering what we were thinking when we started or were in the middle of sewing something out of our comfort zone.

Hosted by Carol
"It's a Dogs Life"
The Challenge...

Make anything dog or vintage related. Sew your project with dog themed fabric or applique/embroidery of dogs. As an added challenge if dogs don’t ring your bell, think vintage. Vintage blocks, quilts, fabrics or whatever old designs make you happy.

hosted by me
"Monster Mash"
The Challenge...

Sew and share something scary, not scary, or something in between. If it’s Halloween related you know we will love it!

hosted by me
"Turkey Trot"
The Challenge...

Think turkeys, thankfulness or Thanksgiving fabric. November also means beautiful colors of fall, so sew something with oranges, golds, brown, greens or cranberry reds.

hosted by Carol
"Virtual Cookie Exchange"
The Challenge...

Recipes are optional. You can share or not. Tell us about your Christmas traditions. Show off your Christmas decorations/tree. Spill your funny Christmas stories. If it’s about Christmas, we want to hear about it.

Feel free to add the buttons to your blogs whenever you like.
You don't need to sign up for them right away, as usual we will make announcements 2-3 months before the hop and you can sign up then with the hostess of that month.

Remember to put the hop name in the subject line.
We need your
  • your name
  • your blog name
  • blog URL
  • date preference (if you have one)

To help make it even easier, we have a list you can print out and make notes for projects you want to participate in.

You can download it HERE

That's it for our 2023 Challenge hops!

Sit back and enjoy or play along and inspire us all.

We will see you in a couple of weeks with our "When Pigs Fly" Challenge.
I will be getting the schedule out to those participating in the next day or two!

til then...
Keep on Stitchin'
