Quilting Mod Challenge #1

I'm throwing down the gauntlet! In other words, I'm issuing you a challenge. Here's the low-down.
Update: My fabric allotment has been claimed. If you'd still like to participate, see #7.
1. I will mail you FREE fabric! You'll receive twelve fat eights of Art Gallery Fabrics Round Elements. In return, I'm asking you to create a finished work including at least some of the fabric and link up from Oct. 1-7. There will be prizes (TBA)!
2. Tag your progress on social media with @quiltingmod and #QMChallenge.
2.  You will need to have a blog so you can create a post to link in October.
3. You must follow the Quilting Mod blog via e-mail, Feedly, or Bloglovin' so you don't miss challenge announcements.
4. You can create whatever finished project you'd like: bag, table runner, apron, dress, quilt, etc.
5. You are free to add additional fabrics of your choice. They do not need to be within the collection.
6. Due to shipping costs, I'm reluctantly restricting the fabric to U.S. postal address only. 
7. I have a limited amount of fabric and shipping budget available, so I may not be able to send all interested parties fabric. You may still participate in the linky and be eligible for prizes, but will need to provide you own fabric.
8. If you are interested, please leave a comment below expressing your interest. If you are a no-reply blogger, include your e-mail so I can contact you for mailing information. By doing so, you agree that you will make an item with the fabric and link up during the first week in October. You will be asked to reimburse me for fabric and shipping if you neglect to make something by the link up party.
I hope you'll join the fun!

  1. For FOMO...count me in! Love the fabrics!

  2. For sure!

  3. I would love to take you up on that challenge! I follow you on bloglovin and I have a US mailing address.

  4. Sounds like fun! Count me in!

  5. What a fun (and generous) challenge! If I was stateside, I'd jump right in! But I don't cross the border until Thanksgiving, so I'll have to enjoy from the sidelines. Won't this be fun! XO

  6. Dang Afton! You can't just go and giveaway fabric....LOL!! What a fun challenge and wide open as far as creativity!

  7. I'm in... and if you can give the fabric to Renee to bring on our trip or give them to me in early September, it will save you shipping fees!

  8. I would love to take part in this! Great fabrics!

  9. I am interested in this challenge.

  10. I can't resist a challenge and would love to play along!

  11. I would love to join this challenge. The fabric is so pretty. My blog left sidebar has an Email Me image link to contact me. 'Hope you still have some fabric left to send.

  12. I am interested in joining if I may. I am happy to cover the shipping cost. Is it a requirement to make an original design or can we follow patterns? Looking forward to it!

    1. I believe I'm out of fabric for the challenge, but you may still participate as long as you are willing provide your own fabric. I will let you know if any of those who had an earlier participation request decide to opt out of the challenge, making their fabric allotment available.

  13. Dang--if I wasn't traveling so much, I totally would have jumped in, but there's no way I can make your October deadlines. This is a WAY fun challenge--you are amazing!
