The Canadian Quilter's Association (CQA) has a couple of challenges taking place that you may be interested in.
The first is a Pin Cushion Challenge. You do not need to be a member of CQA to participate. Check out this link for the details....http://www.canadianquilter.com/events/pin-cushion-challenge.php
The second challenge is a Youth Quilt Challenge. The Theme: Your Favourite Food
The idea is to get CQA members to sponsor and mentor a young quilter. There are three categories: elementary, middle, and high school. They must be sponsored by an individual or shop member that is in good standing with CQA. Here is the link: http://www.canadianquilter.com/events/youth-challenge-2013.php
There you go...I quick project to get you thinking and give you a chance to use up those scraps AND an opportunity to share what you love with your child, grandchild, or class. Good luck!
