The Annual Miniature Pinscher Quilt Project is on again, and we are now calling for quilt squares! Whether you want to sew, appliqué, embroider, iron-on transfer, counted cross-stitch, paint, or any other medium, or to just donate money to the project, we would love your help! This is IMPS' biggest annual fundraiser, and we need your support to keep this tradition going. Go visit www.mgbeng.com/allquilts.html to see the Minpin Quilts from the previous raffles.


Here are the Quilt Square Instructions:

  1. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING:

    The finished square should measure at least 13 inches square, which means 13" x 13". This is the VERY IMPORTANT! Please do not to make your square smaller than 13" x 13", as it would mean additional work for Paula. Additionally, your design within MUST be no larger than 12 inches square, allowing a ½ inch clearance between the design and the edge of the material, as shown below. If your design is oversized, it may not make it onto the Minpin Quilt.

  2. As this is a Minpin Quilt, we would prefer quilt squares with a Min Pin or dog theme.

  3. Please use cotton or cotton/polyester blend good quality fabrics. Avoid fabrics that feel stiff, or are loosely woven or stretchy.

  4. Please choose colors that aren't too extreme - try to stay with more neutral colors - the overall quilt will look better!

  5. And feel free to make more than ONE quilt square!! LOL!


So get started now, and let's make this quilt the best one yet! Have fun, and don't worry if you have never made a square before. Many of the quilt squares on our previous quilts were made by people who had never made a square before! If you need some ideas, here's a link to previous quilts www.mgbeng.com/allquilts.html.

If you are planning to send in a square or two or more, please email Kim at kimberlyhouse@comcast.net, so we know how many to expect! Remember - the more squares we get, the better! And make sure you've read the Quilt Square instructions above :-)

The deadline for quilt squares is 31 Aug 2012.

Please send your quilt square(s) to:

Kimberly Molenhouse
