The Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a year-long event they're calling Project Modern. From what I can tell, it will consist of four quilting challenges throughout the next year, with lots of awesome prizes and celebrity (well... in the quilting world) judges.
They revealed Challenge #1 on Wednesday:
Make a quilt based on an inspiration of your choice.
That's it. That's the whole challenge. I actually had to read the challenge post twice before I realized that that one sentence was it. and I was kind of disappointed. I was expecting the challenge itself to be more... inspirational.
This challenge is so open-ended, and anyone who knows me personally knows that I don't do open-ended questions very well. When I worked as a resident assistant in college, this is approximately how my weekly meetings with the hall coordinator usually went:
HC: so, how is Hannah?
Me: um. What do you mean?
HC: How are you doing?
Me: um. I don't... um... I don't know? I mean...
HC: ok - how are classes?
Me: oh, classes are great! I just finished a project in.... [insert rambling dissertation on given subject here]
In other words, this is going to be a lot more difficult than I imagined!
