Treasury Challenge: Upcycled Red Quilt

A TaLL Order

The polls have closed in the “Yellow Silk Ring” treasury challenge, and the winner is A TaLL (Tangerine and Lemon Lime) Order! Congratulations to the curator, Mini Made, and thank you so much to all of our participants and voters.

Our next challenge will now commence! This fun activity is designed to bring new exposure to great Etsy shops, as well as bring us all together in the spirit of beautiful treasuries.

The contest is open to anyone, and we invite all Etsy members to participate, even if you’re not an Oh Canada Team member. Members with buyer accounts are also welcome to play - if you can make a treasury, you can join in!

The winner will receive the opportunity to select the theme for our next challenge. It could be an idea, a color, or even an item from their shop, or a favorite shop, to be featured in our next Treasury Challenge.

The Rules

1. Your treasury must incorporate the challenge’s theme, and include at least 8 Oh Canada Team members.

Check out our team roster for members, or search for the tag OhCanadaTeam when choosing your featured listings.

3. You must include the words “OCT Challenge” in your treasury’s title.

4. You must tag your treasury with “ohcanadateam” and “OCT challenge”

5. In your treasury’s description, let viewers know that it is an entry in an Oh Canada Team challenge, invite them to join, and provide a link to our main blog, or this post.

6. If an item in your treasury sells or is removed, please replace it with another item from the same shop.

Screenshots of each entry will be available in our Flickr challenge album for your reference before judging begins.

7. Please do not use your own shop(s) in your entry, including alternate shops.

How to Enter

To enter your treasury, add a link to it in the comments section of this post.

Only treasuries that are submitted on the blog before the deadline will be included in the judging round.

The deadline for the “Red Quilt” challenge is Tuesday, September 21st. Our judges will select 6 finalists, and voting will begin on Thursday, September 23rd.

Voting for this challenge will close the following Tuesday, and the winner will be announced along with our new challenge theme on Thursday, September 30th.

Everyone is welcome to play - including Etsy shoppers and non-team members. If you’ve never made a treasury on Etsy before, you can get some handy tips in this tutorial: How to Make Etsy Treasuries.

Upcycled Vintage Quilt by Mini Made

The Theme

Our previous challenge winner, Mini Made, has chosen a lovely upcycled red quilt to be the focus of this challenge round. You can create using any theme that you desire, but you must include this listing in your treasury: Upcycled Red Vintage Quilt.

Challenge Judges

Not ready to make a treasury yet? We will also be looking for guest judges to help narrow down the finalists. If you would like to participate, let us know in the comments section of this post, along with a link to your shop. The first three volunteers will be contacted by our Treasury Challenge admins with more details.

Please feel free to contact our team admins if you have any questions.

Good luck!

Congrats on the win!

Ok here's my entry for the new challenge. I decided to choose between colours of red, copper and blue to create a visually soothing treasury.

Oops I clearly did not put 8 ohcanadateam members in my treasury. But did everything else. You can have a peek if you like :)
