Calling All Artists! (Cross-Posted)
« on: August 11, 2014, 03:38:28 AM »
:glitter: :art: Calling all Arena Artists! :art: :glitter:

As we all know, the MLP Arena is the most amazing place on the entire internet.  :accomplished:  Our site is particularly awesome because of our fabulous members and a dedicated volunteer staff team.  The site may be free to all of us, but there are operation costs in order to keep the forums running smoothly.  In order to keep our site ad-free and available to all, we sometimes hold auctions, raffles, and sales of MLP Arena merch.  Inspired by a quilting thread in the Arts and Crafts Corral, I'd like your help making a community quilt to sell at the next Arena auction to raise money for our pony home!
How do you get in on the fun and make a difference to our pony community, you ask?  Easy! :frolic:

PM me with a design proposal for your square.  The mods will look at all entries and select the 12 we feel best represent our community!  The artists with the winning designs will then have 6 weeks to make their design a reality and then ship the square to me for assembly and quilting.

Details:

:heart: All finished squares must be 18x18" (approximately 46x46cm) on cotton fabric. Remember that the edges of the square will be cut off by the seams, so leave about 1/2" on each side free of details. I don't want to chop off anyone's art!
:heart: Squares can be painted, applique, cross-stitched, embroidered, pieced, or any other method you choose.  Be as creative as you want!
:heart: All generations are welcome and encouraged!  You are also welcome to use the Arena mascot pony.
:heart: PM your entries to ZennaBug before midnight on August 31st.
:heart: Winning artists will have 6 weeks to make their design a reality before shipping their squares to ZennaBug.
:heart: The finished quilt will be available to purchase in our next Arena auction and all proceeds will go towards the operation costs of our site.

ETA: Here is the ref sheet for our mascot pony! Designed and drawn by sirithfin. :D

So I'm a little confused? The thread title is "Calling All Artists" but the text seems to state that you're only calling people who do quilting.

Not quite, Violet. :) I'll be doing the actual sewing aspect of the quilt. The squares can be any media, as long as they're on fabric. So fabric paints or something along those lines would work just fine if you aren't much for sewing. :) Sorry for the confusion.

I get it.  I think my mom tossed all the old paint I'll take a look because this sounds fun.

I'm pretty interested!! I'll have a think on a design and get back to you. However I will be on the look out for the auction when the time comes, you can never have too many blankets or pony merch! :P

Can we submit more than one design? I realise that not everything we submit will make the grade (so to speak) but if we come up with more than 1 design can we submit the others?

^ yip, if you read the thread in the Arts and Craft corral you can paint, sew what ever as long as it's on fabric.

I've already got my idea sorted and reference pictures so I hope to make a mock up design this weekend to see if it works or not.

Updated the first post with a ref sheet for the Arena's mascot pony. :)

Feel fre to submit more designs if you want. We will look at any and all of them. :)

This sounds like fun!   :biggrin:  Not sure if I will have time to enter or not, but I would sure like to.  I'm sure the finished quilt will look amazing  :cool:

I hope you do! :D

You don't have to sew at all if you don't want to. Paint is perfectly fine too. :)

so we are allowed to have part of it painted?

Yes indeed. Any media are welcome, as long as it will be durable to stand up to use and washing. :)

Yay! I can't wait to see! :D
