Thread Head Quilt Along Challenge

This week I am putting out a challenge for the Thread Head Quilt Along Participants!! To finish a project made with the quilt blocks.

My quilt top, binding and backing are all ready to go - I am just waiting for wool batting that I ordered from the Quilter's Den to come in (I had to order the wide stuff).

You will have until the end of May (should be enough time) to finish something (quilt, table runner, wall hanging....) using the blocks of the quilt along (they are all found here if you are new).
When you are finished (pieced, quilted, bound - and labeled if that is your thing) email me a picture (joannethreadhead(at)gmail(dot)com - low resolution is great)and I will post it on the THQA Page (so you don't need to be a blogger).
On June 1st, 2011 I will use a random number generator to determine a winner from all the completed projects.

Now for the prize!
I was going to announce it, but I have decided to keep it as a surprise. My youngest son always hopes to receive a surprise in the mail, and since June 1st is his birthday, the winner will receive a surprise in the mail!
I recently won February's OPAM draw from Kris, and I am waiting for a surprise to come all the way from Australia - very exciting - and another reason I thought a surprise would be a good idea.

So please get sewing and send in some pictures - it will be so wonderful to see what people have been up to!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Oh, what a great challenge, Joanne! A super idea to keep us all motivated. Thank you!
Your quilt has come out so amazing that I've decided to follow your lead and do the same size and borders. I'm about half way there so I've got lots of work ahead but I'll try my best to get'er done :)
