Curve It Up Challenge! Let It Begin!

Curve It Up challenge has begun!
We are so excited!!

If you are planning on participating in our QAL, remember to add our QAL button to your blog or website!

*Here are some details you need to know about the QAL:

*The QAL starts today, September 2nd and will go for 6 weeks, ending on Friday, October 10th.

*We will check in with you weekly and we'll have some fun Giveaway's throughout!

*We will end with a linky party for everyone to show off their quilts!

*Note! There are a couple of revisions made to this pattern. They can be found by clicking on our "Pattern Revisions" tab at the top of the blog. 

Now for the Challenge part of it!

We are giving you 3 options to choose from:

Option 1  Using all the Curve it Up blocks, simply create your own design!!  That's what Helen did for our Quilt Sample:
 You can see how she mixed all her blocks up.  Many of the Curve it Up blocks have 4 parts.  You can easily separate those blocks and use them to fill in other spaces.  Mathematically it will work!!
 Option 2  Using only one or two blocks create your own design.  Here are 3 samples showing how fun it can be to come up with your own design.

 This is the Curve it Up Log Cabin block. 1 part of the block, repeated, then set on point.

 This quilt uses 4 Curve it Up Star blocks and the Curve it Up Curvy Geese blocks for the border.

This quilt uses 6 Curve it Up Dresdens and one of the Curve it Up Sashings to create a border on the top and bottom of the quilt.

Option 3  Anything go's!!  Basically if your mind can think it then this is the option for you!!

Are you getting excited yet??  We are!!  Jenny and Sherilyn will be making their own Curve it Up Challenge quilt right along side all of you and will be sharing their progress along the way. If you have any questions, let us know.

Sherilyn's first block! Wahoo!!

 We created a Flickr group here for this Curve It Up Challenge.

We are very excited to see everyone's creations! 

Curve It Up Challenge QAL!
 Ready... Set... Go...! :D

Is this pattern the same as all the pdfs from the QAL a year or so ago?
