The quilt block challenge this year for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (which is also the 40th anniversary of the show) is featuring fabrics designed by Tula Pink, called Moon Shine. Tula is also one of the Quilter's Affair teachers, who teach classes the week prior to the Outdoor Quilt Show. The fabric is presented by FreeSpirit Fabrics. You can find more information, including the contest rules here. The deadline for receiving the blocks is June 15, so you have plenty of time if you would like to enter the contest.
I have entered the contest myself the past several years and I won an honorable mention 2 years in a row (2012 & 2013). It's a fun way to stretch your creativity by creating a quilt block. You never know if you will be one of the winners. You must use only the fabrics that are sent to you, but you can embellish with all sorts of things like buttons, beads, lace, trim, embroidery stitches, etc. The block can be appliqued or pieced or a combination.
Here are the 7 fabrics that were sent to me. Right now I am just looking at these until inspiration strikes and then I will create my quilt block. How about you? Want to join in on the fun and create a block too?
