Stitching for Charity 2015

Postby tnitnetny » Wed Dec 10, 2014 3:31 pm

It is that time again! PLEASE read all of the rules before you start. If you send a square that does not follow the rules it will not be used.

Rules
* You must use 16 count white/off-white/cream aida (NO colored Aida! No exceptions.)
* at least 13" x 13" total canvas size (it will be cut down before quilting, but there must be extra to cut)
* 96x96 stitch working space (6" x 6"). Please measure your aida before stitching to make sure 96x96 is a 6" x 6" space. If you need an extra row or column to make it 6"x6" you can add it.
* Every square within your 96x96 must be stitched. This is for a quilt so there can not be any open unstitched squares. Please do not add any backstitching.
* Do not use metallic, glow in the dark, or floss that is a different consistency from standard floss
* This is fun and for charity. No negativity.

Your choice of what to stitch
* Must be a scene from a video game, no original creations or just logos. It can be an opening or closing shot, the scene doesn't have to be within the game.

* You can stitch a single character as long as it fills most of the square and the specific game can easily be identified. For example a Kirby would not be accepted, although this Kirby would: http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a6/tnitnetny/kirby.jpg. would because it is obviously from Return to Kirby's Dreamland.

* Please only one scene per game to make the quilt(s) interesting. Games from previous years can be repeated, but please do a different scene. Let's try to make each year unique.

* Once you know your scene, sign up on the spreadsheet so there are no repeats. Feel free to make more than one square, but you are only allowed to sign up for 2 squares at a time. If you finish those two squares, you can sign up for one more square at a time until it is finished.

There is a space for your name on the spreadsheet if you want the Certificate that accompanies the quilt to show it.

* Here are the squares from previous years:

Where to send your finished squares:
Toni Smith
283 Admiral Drive
London, Ontario n5v 1j2
Canada

They MUST be received in my hands no later then September 1st (preferrably August 1st) of 2015. If you are outside of Canada, please allow 3 weeks for shipping due to customs.

or if you are in the United States

Toni Smith
2103 Crossgate Drive
Crofton, MD 21114
Must be received at this address by June 20.

Please make sure you follow the rules exactly. If you send me a square that doesn't have the extra material around the square, I can't use it. If you use colored aida, I can't use it. If you send it after the deadline, it will be too late and used in the following year.

I will fill in as many squares as we need with embroidery and can make more than one quilt, so there is no limit to the amount of squares you want to make.

Happy Stitching!!

YES. I AM READY THIS YEAR. This is the year, guys. This is the year my square is FINALLY going to make it in.
Also, can we use like, official game art? Like, I was thinking that since my first square is almost finished, that I should sign up for my second one, and I was thinking of doing Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, but the screenshots from the game aren't that great? Like, they're bad quality and at a funky angle, but some of the official art and like, drasn scenes that they put out are really nice. Is that okay?

"official" art like the cover of the video game or advertisements are ok as long as they are recognizable as the game. For example, bomberman has a really recognizable game cover art that is MUCH better than the game itself.

Fan art is not ok. If you are thinking of something like that it is probably better to show us the picture.

Woo! I have a whole list of them I would like to do, but only signed up for the first 2. Might have to start these in January as I have a couple of projects I need to get done sooner rather than later. :)

Edit: On that note, which would look best for the Little Nemo square?

It was art for the advertising, and not fan art, no worries! But I also decided to not use it because after resizing it looked absolutely terrible.

Just making sure that mine isn't too close to the image that RoseLight is wanting to use for hers! Sorry it isn't any bigger!

SheWhoRoars and I both want to do harvest moon games and the art tends to be rather similar...
Are these different enough?
