Around the Quilting Block: The Car
Right after you look inside the refrigerator, we challenge you to look inside your car to find inspiration for Around the Quilting Block. From gym shoes to an umbrella, to a tissue box and more, we ask you to use inspiration from items found in your car to create a quilt top block that is no larger than 8" x 8". Deadline: October 15, 2009.

Inspired By
For our next installment of Inspired By, we ask that you turn to the lyrics of Walk the Line —the song made famous by legendary artist, Johnny Cash. Deadline: October 15, 2009.

Triptychs are an interesting design format that allows art quilts to be created to tell a rich and compelling narrative. We invite you to consider telling a narrative of your own through a triptych art quilt. Deadline: October 15, 2009.

Quilts in a Jar
So inspired are we with Cynthia Shaffer’s quilts in jars (to be revealed in the premier issue on page 144) that we would like to challenge our readers to submit quilts in jars to be considered for future issues of Art Quilting Studio. The jars you use can be any size — big, small, tall, short, fat, skinny. And the quilts you create to place within the jars can be letters (like Cynthia’s) or any other subject matter that your muse inspires you to create. Deadline: January 15, 2010.
