Modern Mini Challenge

I was super excited to be invited by Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts to take part in her Modern Mini Challenge -  a 5 part series which kicks off on Monday February 6!

The idea behind the MMC is for you to think big, make small - inspired by this bunch of incredibly talented gals who are sure to get your creative juices flowing. As a newbie hopper, I asked Jennifer if she would put me towards the end of the line and she did.  She`s sweet like that.

Jennifer`s newly completed mini quilt. Washington Sidewalk blocks 24" x 24" 
Did I mention this is a competition and that means prizes?!  5 to be exact and they are A-MAZING!

 Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop is generously sponsoring all five fabulous prizes!

The five winners will be chosen as follows: 

James’ choice (Jennifer`s husband chooses his favorite) 
Viewer’s choice Mug Rugs
Viewer’s choice Mini Quilts 
(mug rugs and mini quilts- the viewers choose from a selection chosen by Jennifer and three other bloggers) 
Luck of the Draw (Random Number Generator chooses 2 winners)


Both Viewer’s Choice Winners will receive a fat quarter bundle of the FULL LINE of Flea Market Fancy reprint by Denyse Schmidt.
James’ Choice Winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop
Both Luck of the Draw Winners will receive a $75 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop

The where: Ellison Lane Quilts

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone's going to come up with, and hopefully my FTLOS mini will work perfectly :o) (other than that, I'm trying to work out how to bribe James, he seems the most vulnerable to that sort of mind bending ;o) )

Congratulations! How very exciting. I would love to make and enter a mini, not sure if I have the time since I'm doing Curves Camp. Oh, I wish I could do it all! :-)
