The definition of “wild” is up to you and your lifestyle. You could photograph your planner on the beach as you take that one last summer hurrah, on a mountaintop after an invigorating hike, in the “wilds” of your favorite fabric store, at a soccer game where you sneak in some planning between watching your child play, or even among the flowers in your garden just outside your door. Let your imagination run wild, and most of all HAVE FUN!!

To enter, simply:

  • Share a photo on Instagram of your planner out in the wild– be creative! The best photos will win!
  • Tag #QPinthewild and @thequiltersplanner
  • Follow @thequiltersplanner and our sponsors @aurifilthread @andoverfabrics @olfacreates
  • Be sure your Instagram account is set to public so that we can see your entries!

A winner will be chosen each week, and a grand prize winner will be chosen at the end of the challenge. We are grateful to our sponsors Aurifil Thread, Andover Fabrics, and OLFA® for sponsoring this challenge, and have some great prizes for each of the winners.
