April ~ May Challenge

Courthouse Steps

First things First

Had to laugh yesterday
upon opening an email from

we must have both seen this
antique piece
in the past few weeks
since this is
what she's working on

and it's the one
I had already chosen
for my first
Antique Inspiration Challenge
The challenge rules are fairly simple

~create your own piece
using the antique as inspiration...
you can hook, stitch or punch

~ send me a photo of your finished item
by midnight May 31st
do not post your photo
anywhere online before the contest ends

~I'll do a Random Drawing for
the prize winner from all entries
if a hooked or penny piece
wins you'll get wool
cotton piece gets quilt fabric
and so on...


  1. Great! Mebbe I can start it this weekend during retreat!

  2. Well, sister friend, we certainly do love the same things!!! LOL I'm quilting mine. I was going to have it for my next update some time in May but maybe I'll hold it till later so I can enter your challenge! This little antique quilt just spoke to me!! I think it was just the simplicity of the one block in the center. Can't wait to see what kind of creations come from this inspiration! Lori

  3. What a great pattern to start a challenge with. Count me in.
