  1. I really loved: the color challenges (orange, purple, blue floral), the Ascot Challenge, and To Dye For – those were my favorites!

  2. I loved the “cover me” one. I found it very creative and interesting.

  3. I would love another round of “Cover Me”, “All Pinned Up”, and “Once Upon a Time” :-).

  4. I really liked (but was unable at the time to participate in) “Kidding Around”, “Once Upon a Time”, and “Cover Me”. But there were tons of good ones

  5. um, spanish harlem. DUH.

  6. “kidding around” was amazing, and I loved the options available in “cover me” and “and the winner is” – the looking for ideas was just as much fun as the sewing! I did also like “pillow talk”, as the restriction made it such a challenge, but perhaps with something different next time like something already in your wardrobe or a curtain or fat quarters!

  7. I really liked the movie themes (unrequited love and the hitchcock ones) and also the Oscars theme! And kidding around was really fun. The ones that I felt the most creative energy from were the ‘to dye for’ and the ‘Hitchcock’ themes.

  8. The ones I liked best (for participating and also for seeing what everyone else had done) required inspiration from a film, book, music, local area, your childhood. I still don’t think I got away from literal interpretation but it was lots of fun to think about, to do and to follow. xx

  9. I loved Once Upon A Time and the pin up challenge. I also would love to try the To Dye For challenge.

  10. I’m so behind and am just seeing this post! This wasn’t an official challenge last year, but I would like to actually see you “Make This Look” to see how it turned out.

    I loved The Common Thread Project too!
