I am not very good at staying up with the latest of anything. Technology first and foremost (why yes, that is a VCR sitting next to the DVD player!) I didn't even know there was a Color of the Year until I was informed by several people who know my penchant for the orange hue. Yes, 2012 is all about orange! Well, Tangerine Tango to be more precise. Lucky me! To celebrate, Erin over at Two More Seconds is having a quilt challenge and, no, they did NOT ask me to submit something (whew!), but they've asked if I will help out with the judging! I can do that :) Do I have any quilter friends out there? If you're a quilter, make me proud and hop on over there to get the details of how to enter.
If quilting isn't quite your thing (like me!) Rachel over at Family Ever After is having a sewing competition called SEW-VIVOR! And let me tell you what, I was tempted to enter myself after seeing what she's got up for grabs for the winning contestant, over $900 worth of sewing goods! Instead, I get to help judge! All you do is submit a project you've sewn and the top 10 entries will be chosen to compete for the grand prize. So click on over to her blog for more information on how to enter.
And last, but not least, there's Project Run & Play, which I know all too well, sweating it out each week with several fantastic designers and sewers in the first season. I think that encouraged me to create some of my personal best designs, honestly. This is the third season and also exploding with talent, if you haven't been following and voting along. I'm on the judging panel and look forward to each Friday when the designs are featured. Here are the winning designs from the round so far:
Amazing, right? You can also play along with Project Run & Play by submitting your design along the theme each week, and there have been some stunning entries! Hop on over to take a look.
So, anyone out there playing along with these fun competitions?
