Welcome to The Joyful Quilter!! And... Welcome back to the wonderful world of Project QUILTING hosted by Kim Lapacek @ Persimon Dreams!! This post is outlining the 6th (and final) Challenge of Season 13. Trish Frankland @ QuiltChicken is the creator of the challenge prompts that participants face and this week she went to the tradition of quilting and a basic unit of many quilt blocks.
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 13.4 can be found at THIS LINK.
Rule 1: Your project must include a minimum of 5 pieced flying geese blocks.
Rule 2: 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 noon March 13th, 2022, and linked up by noon Central Time March 20th, 2022.
Suddenly, there was little more than 24 hours until the deadline.
mechanical problem with my machine and sewing the binding to the FRONT of the quilt when I had planned to stitch it down by machine! Fortunately, I had given myself an extra eighth-inch of clearance when I cut the binding:

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 days after the prompt was announce, but was still finished with a couple of hours until the deadline. I'm SEW looking forward to seeing what all the other entrants made. I joined the link-up about 1 hour before the 12:00 CST deadline.
