Who Needs Octoberfest When You Can Do OctoberQuest

This month marks the one year anniversary of this CanAussie venture, more commonly known as TGIFF! We've got a new look and new buttons thanks to the fabulous Em from Sewing by Moonlight. Thanks so much, Em!

In honour of this milestone and, more importantly, you fine people who link up, we are celebrating with OctoberQuest (challenge, quilt fest - get it?). Anyways, your quest, should you choose to accept it is to finish up those quilty projects, whether it's for the upcoming Bloggers Quilt Festival, the 100 Day Hustle, Finish-A-Long, Halloween, Thanksgiving or even, gasp, Christmas (just think how Super Quilter-ish you'd feel if you were done some of your Christmas gifts before November even started). Or finish up those WIPs, UFOs, charity quilts, or um, overdue gifts -- you decide!

To get your quilting mojo going, we've got some incentives for you. Pam from Mad About Patchwork is giving a $50 gift certificate to two lucky participants! Oh, what quilty goodness I you could get with that! There's something for everyone too - Pam's offering a 10% off purchases for the month of October to all OctoberQuest participants -- just use TGIFF10 at checkout.

So here's how OctoberQuest will work:
  1. Your quilty project must be completely finished (As much as we love celebrating quilt tops or completed blocks, they will not be eligible for the prizes).
  2. You may enter more than one finish and even more than one finish each week. Just add a link for each finish to one of the linky parties. The linky parties will stay open from their start date until the end of the month.
  3. Your post/photo on Flickr/Picasa must have a link back to the TGIFF! site and the particular party you are participating in. 
  4. Link up your quilty finish in any of the TGIFF! linky parties this month:
  5. OctoberQuest will be open until October 31st at 11:59 p.m. EST. A winner will be picked via Ms. Random Number Generator on November 1st and notified via email. Please make sure we can contact you via email or we will blow the gift certificates on ourselves need to run Ms. Random again.
So ramp up your "Let's Get 'Er Done!" attitude and start polishing off those projects to share starting this Friday at Better Off Thread.

Happy OctoberQuest!
