Welcome to The Joyful Quilter!! And... Welcome to the wonderful world of Project QUILTING hosted by Kim Lapacek @ Persimon Dreams!! This is my 3rd year of participation in the Challenge. Trish Frankland @ QuiltChicken is the creator of the crazy challenges that participants will face during Season 13.
Sassy @ Farm Quilter got me started at the beginning of Season 11 by inviting her readers to join in the fun. I accepted her invitation and the rest is history. As was the case last year, I will be dragging along my friend LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color again this season, as she enjoys having a reason to stretch her creative wings. Would YOU like to join me in this creative journey, too?
FAIR WARNING: It's a wild ride, but oh SEW rewarding!
Challenges are given and start to finish you have ONE WEEK to complete your project. PQ 13.2 can be found at THIS LINK.
RULE 1 – YOUR PROJECT MUST SOMEHOW INCORPORATE A SILHOUETTE – THE OUTLINE OF AN IMAGE.
You have one week to meet the challenge. Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline – that is, started on or after January 16th, 2022, and posted by noon Central Time January 23rd, 2022.

Follow THIS LINK to the Season 13 overview. Check back on the Challenge release days (or sign-up to be notified automatically) and there may be one that YOU just can't resist.
It's a SHORT turnaround time!
Depending on the size and complexity of your project, that doesn't HAVE to be insurmountable. With a little creativity and a few evenings, you really CAN do this! My project was begun shortly after the prompt was announce but was finished with only 2 hours until the deadline. Even so, I will link up with only an hour or so to spare. I'm SEW looking forward to checking out all the other entries.
