Welcome to Make It Mosaic, a brand new Design Invitational & Quilt Block Challenge right here on Fandom In Stitches!

We have a fun challenge and a great prize to share with you today and we hope you'll take this opportunity to jump in and join us as a Fandom In Stitches Designer!

The Rules:
  • Design an original quilt block using a pixel grid (mosaic) format. (There's some nifty software that can get you started here and a FREE class on Craftsy here).
  • Please note: designs must be your original creation and not based on the work of another artist or taken from another website. Edited to add: "original" means we are asking you to not use a chart or grid pattern already created by someone else for craft or quilt purposes.
  • Blocks can be as simple or complicated as you like and made using any size grid, but you MUST make a sample out of fabric.
  • Designs can be images, words, etc. from the fandom of your choice, keeping in mind that all Fandom In Stitches patterns are PG-13.
  • Patterns can be drafted using drawing or quilting software or hand drawn, as long as they are clean and easy to understand. (More info)
  • All patterns should include a full color grid (example) AND number of squares to cut out of each color fabric (i.e. red = 28, white = 76, etc.). Since these types of blocks are all generally pieced the same way, additional piecing instructions are optional.
  • A photo of your completed block AND your pattern file are required to enter.
  • Patterns should be in PDF format (preferred for easier printing).
  • How To Enter:
    • Post your photo to the Fandom In Stitches flickr group by Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 11:59 pm CST (US).   DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 9AM CST November 12, 2014!
    • Tag your photo #makeitmosaic and include the link to your pattern OR Email us your pattern file so we can share it here on FiS.
    • Please do not submit photos or patterns via comments or Facebook.
  • On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, we will post all of your fabulous designs right here on Fandom In Stitches
  • Visitors will be able to vote anonymously on his or her favorite and the winner will be announced Wednesday, November 25, 2014.
  • One lucky participating designer for Make it Mosaic will receive a Fandom In Stitches coffee mug!
  • Feeling inspired? Enter more than one pattern, as long as it follows the rules!
