I’ve got a whole page dedicated to it, you can see all the details here, and if you’re in, all you have to do is join the Flickr group here. Basically it works like this:
You pick a card from any standard deck of cards (8 of diamonds, Jack of clubs, etc) and depict it however you want in the form of a mini quilt (10″ x 10″ to 24″ x 24″). Your representation can be literal, totally surreal, it can even look like a Dali painting. In fact, the weirder, the better – because the prizes are based on your creative interpretations:
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:
Julie from Intrepid Thread is giving a $25 gift certificate!
Natasha from Skye Reve Fabrics is giving away a $20 gift certificate!
Randi from Fresh Squeezed Fabrics is giving away a $25 gift certificate!
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 judges.
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.
The button, if you’d like one for your blog, is over on the right sidebar with the handy little box underneath. I don’t mind if you link to me, but it is kinda weird when I find entire copy-and-paste jobs on others’ blogs. Please be kind and respect my words.
P.S. Because the Google Overlords want to force the entire planet into using their crappy social application, my Google Friend Connect has been cancelled. But you can still get me in your Google Reader (or any other reader) by clicking on the Feedburner (RSS) link below.
