Group Description

This is the official Flickr group for the SewHappyGeek Play Mini Quilt Competiton, which runs from 23 April 2012 to 21 May 2012.

You can add anything you like to the group pool; photos of sketches are welcome, and of course photos of fabrics and WIPs!

I have a TON of fabulous prizes you can win with your Mini Quilt:

Best in Show - Fat Quarter Shop – $75 gift certificate Judged by: Melissa of SewBitterSweet Designs

Most Original - Fat Quarter Shop – $35 gift certificate Judged by Melissa of SewBitterSweet Designs

Most Humorous - Fat Quarter Shop – $35 gift certificate Judged by Katy of I’m A Ginger Monkey

Most Popular (through a Linky voting contest) - Fat Quarter Shop - $35 gift certificate

There will also be Lucky Dip prizes, chosen by a random number generator:

Natasha from Skye Reve Fabrics is giving away a $20 gift certificate

Randi from Fresh Squeezed Fabrics is giving away a $25 gift certificate

Here’s how it works: You make a mini quilt depicting ONE card in a standard deck of playing cards. Size guidelines are: anything from 10″ by 10″ to 24″ by 24″ and everything in between.

The quilt must be at least 2 layers. It can be appliqued, pieced traditionally, foundation pieced, whatever. As long as it involves fabric and quilting (ie isn’t a painting), it’s fine! You can be as surreal as you want in depicting your chosen card. If you have an idea but you aren’t quite sure it’ll work, email me: jenna (at) sewhappygeek.co.uk

The competition runs from 23 April to 21 May 2012, but of course you can start planning and chatting earlier in the Flickr group!

Midnight (GMT) Monday 21 May is the last day to enter your completed quilt into the Flickr group for consideration by the judge(s).

There will also be a linky party which you can link up to (flickr pics are okay here – you don’t need a blog!) for the Most Popular prize, which will run until Friday morning 25 May, 9am GMT. All winners of all awards will be announced on 25 May on my SewHappyGeek blog and in the Flickr group.
