Irene - The Univited Guest

So we are in the midst of rain wind and dark skies as Irene comes to dinner later this evening.  I have to say that I really don't welcome her to the table.  She has no manners first of all coming uninvited and she breaks wind almost the whole time she is here.  How rude can you be? 

Anyhow the Rhode Island Mini Quilt challenge is progressing nicely.  I am looking forward to showing/ posting what I have received once the challenge is over.  Just a reminder that the deadline is October 13, 2011.  I am also considering having a vote for "Best in Challenge" with a fat quarter set as an award.  Let me know what you all think.

Stay safe if you are to be visited by Miss Irene otherwise have a great day.

Rhode Island Mini Quilt Challenge

For my 100th post I am inviting viewers to a small challenge, if you are not a viewer you can certainly join in on the challenge - all are welcome.
   Have you ever been to or lived in or perhaps vacationed in Rhode Island?  Rhode Island is the smallest state of the United States.  It is also the 13th state and one of the original colonies.  Rhode Island was also the first state to declare independence from England.  For such a tiny place there is so much history.
There are also things that are indigenous and unique to RI.  It really is a wonderful place to be.
   The subject of the mini quilt is Rhode Island.  You can base your quilt on facts or fiction, a vacation memory or just a drive through the state.  The small state has many sites historic and otherwise as well as many interesting and little known facts.   There are many possibilities.
So the challenge is:
                                       To make a small quilt
                                        with three layers
                                        (top, batting and backing)
                                        measuring 13" by 13",
                                        which is bound
                                        either by fabric
                                        or stitching.

  Send to: Dyeing For You, 275 Harris Avenue, Unit 221, Providence, Rhode Island, 02909.  Please send with return postage so that you will receive your quilt back.  I will try to use your packaging if possible to return your items. Please insure your quilt item if you want insurance.  If you would like to inform me that your quilt is in the mail that is fine, that way I can be on the lookout for it.  I will also send confirmation of receipt via this blog.  All correspondence is through this blog.  Your mini quilts will be displayed on this blog after the submission deadline.

Deadline: October 13, 2011
Your quilt must have a sewn in or sewn on label on the back of your entry with your name and address on it.  Also, if your piece has a title this would be a good place to put it. 

I can't wait to see what everyone sends!
