Are you a machine-piecing
maven or an appliqué ace? Do you stitch THREE quilts in a day? Can you machine
quilt your way through twists and turns and laugh at thread snarls? Then
perhaps you have the mad skills, fortitude and sense of humor to be a fieeeerce
contestant on Project Iron Quilter, Season 2! The Tompkins County Quilters Guild
is once again hosting Project Iron Quilter on Saturday, October 1st
at the Traditions & Beyond Quilt Show at the TC3 Field House in Dryden, NY.
We challenge you to MAKE IT WORK!
Project Iron Quilter is a
fusion of two guilty pleasures, Project Runway and Iron Chef (the original
Japanese version - so over the top!). Contestants dash for fabric and race to
create a quilt that fits the secret theme in only 3.5 hours under the watchful
eyes of interested show attendees! Viewers vote for their favorite while Jonathan
Holstein and Cathy Klimaszewski select the winning quilt and award its creator
the title of "Iron Quilter"! Immediately after the awards, Peggy Haine
will auction the quilts with all proceeds benefitting the Tompkins County SPCA.
Project Iron Quilter Season 2 is going to the dogs! And cats!
You must be at the TC3 Field House in Dryden, NY on
October 1, 2011 to be a participant. Intrigued? The prospectus (rules and application
form) is available at http://www.tcqg.net/project-iron-quilter.php
or you may contact Ruth for information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space limits us to eight contestants so apply early! Just DO it!
