The August Challenge Theme was “Night”. We received fewer quiltlets than in earlier months, but the creativity was everything we could have wanted, and more. Take a look!

“From Ghoulies and Ghosties, and long-leggety Beasties, and things that go BUMP in the night… Good Lord Deliver Us!”
“The Bunny in the Moon”, by Roxanne Fiscella
“30 years ago my best friend nicknamed me “Bunny” and told me there was a bunny in the moon. We subsequently found an artist in Provincetown who did this interpretation. I have imitated it in fabric.”

Stay tuned here for results of the September challenge – The September’s theme is “Totem”.
To participate in any month’s challenge, come pick up a $3.00 theme “kit” (word & fat 1/8 of theme fabric) on or after the first day of the month (not before!) The deadline for each month is close of business on the last day of the month (4:00pm on September 30th — a Sunday — 6:00pm on the last day of October, November and December). Voting for the “favorite” takes place through the 5th of the following month — we ask everyone who comes into the Store to vote. The winner receives a $10 New Pieces Gift Certificate and a handsome, homemade ribbon, and we display that quiltlet in the Store for the following month. If you have been looking for a fun, low-stakes competition to help spark your creativity, come play with us!
