we challenge you, and you, and you…

13 06 2014

Over the last two years the members of the quilt group Fria Tyglar have challenged each other to interpret a word by creating small quilts, 30 x 30 cm. Now we want to challenge all of you to participate in this summer’s 30 x 30-challenge.

Step one:
utmaning_150px• The theme of this summer challenge is WEATHER.
• The idea is to make a quilt in the technique of your choice in the format 30 x 30 cm.
• When you are finished, send a picture and add a few lines outlining the reasoning behind the quilt and what techniques you have used to friatyglar@outlook.com. The closing date for entries is 15th September 2014.
• We will publish your entries as we receive them. (Please note that you must submit a photo and text to participate.)

Step two:
• When all entries have been published on the blog, everyone will be invited to vote for their favourite. The exact starting date for voting will depend on the number of entries, it may take some time to publish all of them.
• Participants will receive a mail when voting starts. We will also publish details via social media.
• All entries will be anonymous during voting. Once the votes have been counted we will publish all the names along with the quilts.
• The quilts that receive the most votes win.

Nowadays crowdfunding is a very popular means of making different projects possible to realise with a large number of people contributing towards the funding of a project.
In order to be able to offer prizes to those who receive the most votes we ask for your help. If everyone who participates in this challenge sends a piece of fabric of 100% cotton – 25 cm full width or 50 cm half width (a quarter or a fat quarter) – we will have some nice prizes and of course we will display them on the blog.
We will also cover the cost of postage to send the prizes to the winners.
Send a mail to friatyglar@outlook.com and we will provide you with the address where you should send the fabric. Of course, you can submit fabric even if you do not take part in the challenge.

If you need inspiration you can browse this website and look at our previous 30 x 30 challenges or check out Twelve-By-Twelve the site that inspired us to start our challenge.

Any questions? Use the comment field below to ask any questions you might have. We will collect all the questions and answer here.

We hope you will join us in this summer challenge! Feel free to spread this information on Facebook, your own blog or in any other way.

Anita, Britt, Gunnel, Ingrid, Patricia and Ragnvi
