Join me for Orphan Project week! Gather your projects and let’s have some fun finishing them!
Find out the start date and how you can sew along.
This week will be full of inspiration, suggestions, support and whatever else you are needing.
This is a great way to kind of plan ahead what you’d like to work on and make sure you have the right supplies you’ll need to move forward in the project.
This is a project challenge….not necessarily a project complete.
Meaning, you don’t need to completely finish the project you have chosen. It’s really about getting excited about the project again and moving forward with it. Getting beyond whatever got you stuck and loose interest.
Depending on the project you choose, there may be one that is really close to being complete- and you’ll end up completing it during the challenge. Awesome! Can’t wait to hear about that. If that does happen, and you have more time left in the challenge- grab another project and get moving forward again.

Orphan Project Challenge Rules (nothing is required, except #1)
1- Any project will work as long as it has been previously started, but not finished. No start date or history required- just started and not finished.
2- You can pick more than one project. If you finish or complete one, you can move to another project.
3- Share your progress, any questions or stuck points in the Quilting 101 fb group. We can help you get over that issue or find the answer you need.
4- Attend the fb live meet ups. These are fun and a great way to keep up with the challenge.
5- Invite a friend. Nothing is better than teaming up with others on a challenge. Need a partner in sewing crime? Have your friend join as well, the more the merrier.
1- print off the tracking sheet (I’ll be sending it via email- sign up here)
2- fill out your tracking sheet with your projects that you are planning to work on
3- gather your projects & supplies
4- snap a picture of your sheet and projects share it with us in the quilting 101 fb group
5- mark your calendar for the dates
Supplies you may need:
- Rotary cutter or a new sharp blade
- Cutting Mat
- Quilt Ruler
- Sewing Machine – this brother is my favorite!
- Iron – here or here
- Seam Ripper – not my favorite thing to do!
Sort through them (I have a feeling some of you will have a lot to decide on), and get them on your tracker. Figure out what the next step is and make sure the supplies or materials you need are on hand. No more excuses.
If you don’t have the supplies and aren’t able to pick them up before we start, then switch to another project.
I can’t wait to see all the projects you are going to work on, plus show off what I have in mind!
