Come back often for ongoing and Current Challenges.



Each quarter, I will pick a maker that uses the #BrownBirdDesignsCreations on Instagram. To qualify with a valid entry, the creation needs to be made from a tutorial or pattern by Brown Bird Designs (Elisabeth DeMoo). Another way to enter into this challenge is using fabric from my Spoonflower shop. Entry deadlines are the last day of each quarter (i.e., January, April, July, and October). The winner will be announced the first week of the following month. I can’t wait to see what you have been working on. Good luck! The prize for the 3rd quarter will be a layered cake.


Tote to Mini Challenge

Let’s make something fun from an old T-shirt, tote bag, or tea towel. In Quilty Jolts Challenge #1, I showed you what I made. I want to see how you take this idea and run with it. Show me what you create using #totetomini. Doing this will enter you into the challenge giveaway. I will announce the winner of this challenge when I share the next Quilty Jolt in the 3rd week of October January(sometime between the 15th and 21st). Deadline for submissions is the 14th of January. The prize will be a set of 5, two eighth-yard cuts (basically 9″ x 40″).  To enter the giveaway on Instagram use #totetomini and #QuiltyJolts.
