PROJECT QUILTING was started in 2010 by Kim Lapacek of Persimon Dreams as an annual quilting challenge.
The next challenge, Season 14, started in January 2023. Each "season" of Project QUILTING lasts 12 weeks and includes 6 challenges. You can participate in all the challenges, or just give one a try. You have one week (from Sunday until noon the next Sunday) to meet each challenge. Find out more about “Project Quilting”, upcoming and current challenges HERE.
You should also visit Kim’s website/ blog where you will find lots of other tips, her craft room overhaul, and several sew-alongs (https://kimlapacek.com/blog)
