Popular vote indicated that we should all do this again this year! Are you in?
I’m once again hoping to make some more progress on my UFOs. Sometimes, 350 blocks doesn’t even seem to get me much further along! If you have projects you want to push along as well, join me in making at least 350 blocks this year, and see if you can get some of them finished up.
Here’s how it will work:
* Let me know you’re playing along
Simply comment on this post, or contact me to let me know you’re in.
I’ve created a page for the 350 Blocks Project HERE, where I’ll be listing information regarding the project and how it’s progressing. If you’re participating, I’ll put your name (and a link to your blog if you have one) on the project page. You can jump in any time.
If you only want to do some of the months, that’s fine. You’ll be eligible for the prize that month. Can’t start till later? No problem, you can still do the months you’re able to, and you’ll still be eligible for the grand prizes in the end. Just do what you can.
* Report in every month
I’ll still be doing monthly blog posts about the project, where I’ll show you the blocks I get done. When you see one of those posts, you need to leave a comment on it, telling us all about your own progress, and either link back to your own blog post, or at least let me know how many blocks you’ve done. You can also email me directly with your current number of blocks, or use the contact page to let me know. I’ll give you a few days to report in each month, so that you have time to leave your comment and be eligible for the prize, because . . . if you don’t let me know you’re playing along, I won’t know to include you in the drawing!
I’ll post your number of completed blocks next to your name on the project page, so you can see how you’re doing compared to everyone else, and I’ll update it every time you let me know your new number. This is NOT a race, however, and everyone who reports in is eligible for the prizes. I repeat, it’s not a contest, it’s just for fun! Well . . . and prizes!
* Monthly prizes
At the end of each month, I’ll have a prize drawing for those who have made progress that month. I’ll draw one random winner from everyone who reports in that month. What this means is: You MUST report in each month in order to be eligible for that month’s prize drawing. This year there will be only one monthly winner each month, in hopes that I can offer even bigger and better grand prizes at the end this time. Plus it’s a bit less work for me, as this year promises to be busier than last. So . . . I repeat: To be eligible for the monthly prize, you have to report in each month!
* Grand Prizes
At the end of the year, there will be some Grand Prizes. If you actually meet the goal of 350 blocks, you’re eligible for some really grand prizes, and if you don’t quite make it, you’re still eligible to win some prizes just for participating. Everyone who has reported in at least once during the Project is eligible for the Grand Prize drawings.
So are you ready to jump in?
If you’re up for the challenge, let me know you’d like to participate, and you can steal the button above for your blog if you like (which isn’t mandatory, either). Just link back to: <http://prairiemoonquilts.com/?page_id=1037>
Here’s the one rule: You can’t go back and dig through blocks you’ve already made and count those. These have to be blocks you’ve made in 2014, so that you actually get further toward a completed project. You’re on the honor system here. I’m counting on you to be fair!
Good luck to us all!
Ready . . . Set . . . GO!!!!
