The American Dream: The Sky’s The Limit

Sometimes when things get tough we forget that we live in the greatest country in the world, where freedom is still treasured and hard work is still rewarded. Creative Sewing wants to celebrate the values that have blessed us so greatly by offering our customers an opportunity.  We have many talented quilters who shop with us and sewing enthusiasts who feel passionately about our country, so we are proposing a challenge that could earn you a BabyLock Tiara Long Arm Quilting Machine!

        The quilt challenge rules are as follows:

1.    Quilts should reflect the theme, The American Dream: The Sky’s The Limit
2.    Quilts must be 45” X 60” (with a 3” variation permitted) Those that measure larger or smaller than the prescribed limits will not be entered.
3.    Fabric must be purchased at Creative Sewing Machine Center
4.    Participants will receive a fat quarter of theme fabric at the time of registration. All or part of the fat quarter must be included in the quilt, either sub-cut or used entirely
5.    Quilts may be traditional or art quilts and include but are not limited to piecing, embroidery, and applique
6.    Judging of quilts will be based on creativity and interpretation of theme
7.    The winner of the Challenge agrees to allow the display of their quilt in the store for 6 months
8.    All entries must be submitted by 5:00pm on August 6th

And now onto the good stuff! We've gotten our fabric in for our fat quarters, and it is lovely! We've spent all morning making fat quarters, so we're ready for this challenge to begin!

This fabric is absolutely perfect for "the sky's the limit"  theme. Here is our sky fabric fat quartered and also against a ruler.

So come and stop on in to register! Everyone who enters will receive their fat quarter so the quilting may begin!
