Extreme Crafting Part 1: Death By Quilting

I always knew quilters were a bloodthirsty lot. Behind the kind quiet demeanor of your average quilter lurks a murderer waiting to strike with her weapon of choice - a table runner.

If you haven't seen it yet, you should check out Pat Sloan's deliciously deadly quilting challenge to determine the "Death By Quilting Queen."

The concept is pretty simple. Quilters signed up and a list was created on Yahoo. Each person was e-mailed a pattern at the same time, and their goal is to finish and send their table runner to the person downstream on the list. If they receive a finished runner first, they are "dead" and must send their unfinished project to their assassin, who completes it and sends it on.

Cutthroat quilting. I love it. I didn't get in on it this time, but watch out if there's another round this summer. . .

Hi, thanks for leaving me a note on my blog! I have been making selling Raggedy Ann dolls on ebay for awhile now. I love making my version of them!
That quilt contest does sound deadly, I wish I had the patience to quilt, I don't, and I love handmade quilts!
I love the sampler you made, very sweet. I do hope you are better after your hip ordeal.
Wishing you best wishes,

I'm glad I didn't find out about it earlier! I might have been tempted.

I think this would be so much fun - especially if I won! I'll have to keep an eye out to see how this one ends and if a new one begins. Fun concept!
