A Few Points of Interest

Coming soon... There is a Holiday Fabric Postcard Swap taking place within the Crazy Quilting International groups on Yahoo and on Facebook. We will be sharing photos of them all soon!

Until then, you may be interested in some of these opportunities - listed in no particular order.

1. Registration is now open for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2016 (better known as CQJP 2016.) You may find more details here. This is a great way to challenge yourself to create a hand embellished crazy quilt block each month so you have 12 blocks to assemble into a crazy quilt at the end of the year. Registration closes on December 20th. Kathy and Marci are wonderful to volunteer their time to this project! 

2. Speaking of Kathy... her new book, Crazy Quilting Volume 1: Beyond the Basics, is now available at Amazon and it is free to Kindle subscribers!

3. If you are looking for a 2016 calendar, there are two crazy quilting calendars available. One is published by Pat Winter. The other is published by Pamela Kellogg and features the work of some of our members.

4. You have an opportunity to have your work featured in the 2017 Crazy Quilt Calendar. Pamela Kellogg has shared details for the Crazy Quilt Quarterly Annual Calendar Contest on her blog. I do hope you will consider making one to submit by the May 1st deadline!

5. I know many of you have enjoyed using Sharon B.'s crazy quilt templates. She has created a 2nd set of templates that are now available. You may see them here. If you plan to order them as a gift this December, the deadlines are listed here. (It looks like shipments being mailed to Australia need to be ordered by Monday, December 14th. Any other destination needs to be ordered by Monday, December 7th.)
