Supernova update

I have some good news for any Supernova Friendship Block Swap participants out there: Stephanie (Late Night Quilter) and I have extended the deadline for entering your quilt until Feb. 14!

friendship-button-largeToo many of you expressed you’d like more time, and since neither she nor I have our quilts finished, it seemed like the least we could do.

Also, you don’t have to enter as partners to win. This way, if you get your quilt finished, but your partner hasn’t, you’re still eligible for the prize. (Sadly, your partner will not, however).

If you haven’t checked it lately, take a look at the Supernova Friendship Block Swap FlickR group. There’s lots of great eye candy there (for those not in the swap); it’s the place to upload your photos by midnight, Feb. 14, 2015.  Here are some guidelines for posting:

  1. When you upload, please name your entry “Your Name: Finished Quilt entry” (e.g., Sandra Louise: Finished Quilt Entry). Please write the word single or pair, to note whether you are entering alone (if your partner didn’t finish) or together.
  2. In the description, please include your partner’s name, your fabric and any other pertinent info you’d like Lee to be aware of when she judges.
  3. You can enter more than one photo, e.g., if you want her to see the back or a different angle.
  4. Please upload a maximum of three photos, each one labeled with your name and the words finished quilt entry.
  5. If both you and your partner have finished your quilts, and your entry pair is selected, you will both win a prize package. There may be some variations in the prize package due to availability, but they will both have approximately the same value.

Entries dated before the deadline of Feb. 14 (midnight EST) will be eligible for the following prize package:

  • Copy of the book, “Vintage Quilt Revival,” by Katie Clark Blakesly, Lee Heinrich (designer of our Supernova block) and Faith Jones
  • Copy of the book, “Quilting Wide Open Spaces,” by Judi Madsen
  • $50 gift certificate from Green Fairy Quilts (Note: if you live overseas you will receive a $50 gift certificate to a fabric store of your choice)
  • An assortment of fat quarters and fabulous notions

Both Stephanie and I have been a little overwhelmed by life, work and the holidays, so neither of us has our quilt tops finished. I know she’s working on her remaining blocks for me, and I can’t wait to see them.
