I’ll be posting ‘Closer Looks’ of the quilts throughout this upcoming week. I just wanted to share with you all the amazing-ness as soon as I could!
I’m very excited to introduce you all to an incredibly talented, inspirational artists who wanted to support Project QUILTING this season – Annie Young Arts. Annie Young is a topographical artist. She paints from her memories and feelings since she went blind a few years ago. I saw her work and I was instantly in love with it – and then I heard her story and when I see her work it gives me inspiration that I can create – even if I’m only given a week…
I would recommend watching this short video and hear how Annie describes herself and her work. She does much better than I am doing.
AND to top it all off – Annie wants to support Project QUILTING! She’s giving away multiple prints of her work throughout the Fourth Season of Project QUILTING. This week is going to be your first chance at one and it will be easy for you to enter! If you win, Annie is letting you choose from one of the prints below and she will send you an 11.x17 of it.
From left to right: Soul Sister, The Cross Roads, Celebrating Cindy, Growing Love, Rugeyes, Big Love, Confetti Susan, I Love You T-H-I-S Much, The Blooming Field of Love and Joy, Princess Zoe.
How to WIN
There is a two step process that is REQUIRED to win a print.
SECOND – leave a comment below telling me that you’re a follower and which is your personal favorite project quilting piece this week. They may be easier to look at in the flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1401824@N21/
Good luck! The contest closes on Friday, January 18th. I’ll post the winner on Saturday, January 19th.
Plan for the next Week
Here’s my plan for the upcoming week. Tomorrow, Monday, January 14th I’ll be posting the winners of the random drawing. Tuesday – the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ Begins (second block goes up on Thursday), and throughout the week I’ll be posting ‘Closer Looks’ of ALL the quilts submitted for the challenge. I may have more than one post per day to get them all in…but I hope you’ll enjoy it. The next Project QUILTING Challenge goes up at NOON CST next Sunday, January 20th.
Oh – and let’s have another linky party while we’re at it! Link up your blog posts on your FINISHED quitls! We want to know how you came up with your idea and how you finished in just a week!
