Hi Quilters!!!
I'm happy to announce a NEW CHALLENGE partnered with Sizzix and my new quilting dies with them!
These Quilting DIES are DIFFERENT then patterns in my book, completely separate tool... do not be confused...  :-)

This is a Sizzix Die Cut Challenge (only) using one or more of my three dies, shown above

+plus any other Sizzix dies, such as the Double Wedding Ring,

to use as you like to design a Challenge quilt!

No one side can be longer than 50"
Must have a 3" quilt sleeve
Must have a  label with makers name, address, phone number, and email on the quilt.
A "Quilt" means a top, batting and backing, quilted and bound.
 more info at the SIZZIX PAGE HERE

The Winner receives a Sizzix Big shot pro machine and a $500 Sizzix Gift Card!

The idea here is you can do whatever YOU WANT to with the shapes... 

You don't have to piece it as you normally do, get creative, how else can you use the shapes?  No rules on how you use them!

Cut them up? 
Add other blocks?
Add orphan?
Change them? 
Piece them? 
Use them all together?
Add other shapes and piecing to go with them! 
The SKY IS THE LIMIT! Surprise me! CUT IT UP!  ;-)

Don't have the dies or a Big Shot pro machine? (no worries, that's why we are giving one away!)

You can REQUEST the shapes/machines at your local quilt shop. You don't have to OWN them to participate... (Hence you winning an entire machine and package!)
Ask your friends if they have the machine and dies,and  make a Sizzix party out of it! A good excuse to get together with friends!
Did you cut some fabric up at QuiltCon? use those pieces as your templates, and off you go!

A great way to get you thinking outside the box! GO PLAY!

HASHTAG YOUR works in progress! #Sizzixquiltchallenge

  1. I don't know anyone with a Sizzix machine, or, I'd borrow it for the mellon shape. I just found a pattern (and fabric) that uses that shape, but, I'll have to trace it instead. Oh well.

    1. Cheryl, it must be my shape, not something else... You can request your LQS to carry it...,
