Christmas Ornament Challenge 2017

Spruce It Up Quilting's Christmas Ornament Challenge is in its 4th year!!! WOW!! Thank you to the previous ornament makers for your generous donations of ornaments... If you're new to the blog, have a look up  at the top header for the pages where you can see the photos of previous ornaments. Very inspirational!!

Ornaments 2017 page is up and we've posted 2 ornaments already!! Great start... thank you!!!

BTW: For new readers, we assign a number to the ornaments as they arrive at the shop; no names are published to keep voting fair.

We're aiming for a bumper crop of ornaments... the winner of the viewer's choice award will be gifted this:


1 pair (small) Perfect Scissors by Karen Kay Buckley
8-fat quarter bundle of Christmas fabric
1-spool Aurifil sewing thread
3 skeins of Valdani Perle Cotton #12
1 pkg Chenille needles

I do like to start thinking of Christmas early. The proposed deadline for submission for the 2017 challenge is October 31st.

Submissions accepted: October 1st-October 31st
Voting begins: November 1st- November 15th
Sale begins: November 16th-until all ornaments are sold

Spruce It Up Quilting will match the total amount of the sale of the ornaments and the donation will go to the Heart And Stroke Foundation of Canada. So please be generous! We all have family, relatives, friends who have been and/or are affected by heart disease and or stroke... let's support this foundation in their research.

Happy stitching!
