Charity Quilt(s) 2013

Postby tnitnetny » Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:37 am

It is that time again! PLEASE read all of the rules before you start, some have changed. 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 15" x 15" 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.
* Every square within your 96x96 must be stitched. This is for a quilt so there can not be any open unstitched squares.
* 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. 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 try to 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 then 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, Onatario n5v 1j2
Canada

They MUST be received in my hands no later then September 1st (preferrably August 1st) of 2013. 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 August 1 (preferably by July 1st).

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.

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

Happy Stitching!!

I may have to take you up on that, BMH. But before I do, I have a question about the squares. Do they have to be on 16 count? I have an awesome idea, but it's beyond me to shrink it to 96x96. It can probably work for 18 count, but I wanted to ask first...

They do, because 96x96 on 16ct gives a 6 inch square.

PM me with your idea and your image and I'll see what I can do for you! :D

BMH is correct. There is no leeway on this rule unfortunately. All of the squares must be the same exact count and be the same exact size in order to look consistent for the quit.
