The Iron Quilter – Quilting Competition to end all Quilting Competitions :)

The Iron Quilter – Quilting Competition to end all Quilting Competitions :)

Quilters, prepare yourself for a challenge like none other.  Iron Quilter is a battle of batting, war of walking foots, scrap of scraps, fight of fussy cutting, and duel of design.  In a nutshell, it is where quilters show what they are truly made of!

***Sorry Quilter, the special ingredient for Iron Quilter is now sold out, therefore entry to the competition is closed.  Feel free to read below on how to follow the contest as a spectator.  Don’t worry though, we’ll have more great competitions like this in the future 🙂 ***

Here are the details:

  • The Iron Quilter contest runs from November 1st to December 31st, 2011.
  • Each Iron Quilter participant may purchase up to 3 specially cut 4 7/8” Summer Breeze charm packs by Sentimental Studios for Moda Fabrics.  This ingredient (at least one complete charm pack) must be used in your project to enter.  Each 4 7/8” charm pack contains 42 squares and costs only $3.  They can be purchased along with any other MSQC products and/or daily deals.  They are available while supplies last.  The only way you can enter is to get these, so don’t delay!
  • Use whatever pattern you want, whatever other fabrics you want.  Just be sure to work 1-3 of these special charm packs into your project.  Be creative!
  • On January 2nd, our panel of judges here at MSQC will select the top projects, and we will announce them on our blog.  It will then be up to you, the people, to vote for your next Iron Quilter (we’ll explain how to do this when the time comes).
  • First prize will be 15,000 Quilter’s Cash points ($150), Second Prize 7,500 points ($75) and Third Prize 5,000 points ($50).  The real prize, though, is the ovation, admiration, respect, and love of the people!

Could YOU be the next Iron Quilter?!  Good luck and happy quilting!

The 10-10-10-10-10 Contest! 31 Chances to Win!

It  sure doesn’t take a Ph.D to realize that fall is here.   Simply stick your head out the window to see the leaves changing color and smell the clean, crisp scent of autumn.  This is the reason that the 10th month of the year (October) is my favorite; and because the 10th month of the year is so incredibly awesome, we’ve decided to have a big old contest, and we’re calling it the
10-10-10-10-10 Contest.  “That’s a lot of 10s – what’s up with that?!”, you ask.  Good question! Let me explain!

10 Thousand Quilter’s Cash Points (worth $100 at our shop) as a Grand Prize!
All in the 10th month of the year!
