Do you remember having an advent calendar or maybe using one with your kids? Each day you would open a door and receive a treat or a special activity for that day.
I have designed a quilted advent calendar for you following that same idea. In this weeks free video tutorial, I will share with you how to design the tree and set it in a quilt. This tree would be super simple to piece using the rotary cutting chart from Electric Quilt
Advent Calendar Challenge
Once you designed the tree -- it needs to be decorated.
So -- for the next 25 days, I have set up a special email series. With this series, you will receive one Christmas themed activity per day. These are the types of activities you will typically find in an advent activity calendar.
Your challenge -- should you chose to accept it - is to design a block (or use a block from the EQ library) around the proposed Christmas activity.
Those that have enrolled in one of my paid classes this year will be automatically enrolled in this class (so there is no need to sign up again if you enrolled in either Shoot for the Stars with EQ8 or Tech Know Quilters). All others will need to enroll.
Day 1 Challenge - Attend a Christmas Concert
Your Day 1 Challenge is to design a block supporting the Christmas activity "Attend a Christmas concert".
How I selected my block. For this challenge I did a search for Music in the EQ block library and modified one of the blocks.
These blocks will be set on Layer 2 (on top of the pieced quilt).
Would you like to share your designs? I would love to see them. Feel free to post in the private Facebook group -- Learning Electric Quilt. Click here to request membership.
Please post your blocks under the Advent Challenge post to assist in keeping the list organized.
