…since we had any progress to post!
Truth is, things have slowed down a lot in the project. Life happened to people, and the holidays are coming up too. So, we’re taking a small break until January, when we will regroup and review our plans together, and hopefully pick up where we left off!
Don’t forget about us! We’ll be back in the new year! 😀

Craftymaster90 and Yurtle recently completed these two latest patches!
I also know that Anna Marie (amneufeld) has completed the Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres patch but she forgot to take a photo of it before she sent it off to Faewren! So, a picture of that will hopefully be coming soon.
On another note, due to some people’s real life situations, we could not get all the patches done in the time we wanted to. So, again, we are in need of stitchers who are willing to help!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join up at the Patchwork Gym Forums to find out more!

Well, there’s been a bit of time passed since the last completed patches and it almost seems like nothing’s happening…but I know that people are stitching when (and where) they can!
Hoping to see the first completion from HeathyChan in the next few days – she’s given me a sneak preview of her Magnemite/Magneton and I can say it’s looking excellent! She only started stitching in April, but she’s taken to it really quickly! 😀
Brityboo‘s Bulbasaur evolution set is coming along very well, too, and that will look great when done.
I’m working on Tentacool/Tentacruel (or I would be, if I wasn’t posting this!) – which I hope will be just as good as all the other patches 😉
And of course there will be more patches popping up shortly…
In other news…
The logo patch has been chosen – congratulations to Penwen and his very nice design!
He’ll receive a prize, a forum badge and general kudos among the group…not to mention that his design will be the 81st patch on the quilt!
No doubt there’ll be something to post very soon, so please check back often! ❤

Sounds like it could be a band name to me…but it’s the three latest complete Gen. I patches!!
Here we have Craftymaster90’s Agatha/Lance, Brityboo’s Pidgey evo and Anna Marie’s Geodude evo – congrats to all! 😀
These three patches bring our total to 19!
In other news…
Voting has begun on the submitted designs for the logo patch! We have five contenders, and voting ends in two weeks’ time! The winner will receive a prize as well as seeing their patch design go into the Gen I quilt! 😀

Congrats to Anna Marie for finishing another patch!
That makes 15 patches done! 😀
I’d just like to add a quick reminder that we are holding a contest at the forums – to design the logo patch! Everyone’s welcome to enter (whether you’re stitching or not!) and there will be a prize up for grabs! 😀
Voting begins on May 16th!

Well done to Craftymaster90 for completing another patch – this time of Gym Leaders Blaine and Giovanni.
That makes 13 patches complete now. Our target of 81 seems like a long way off, but we’ll make it. Especially since we have so many awesome stitchers working their fingers off right now!! ^^
In other news…
All patches have now been claimed! Thanks to everyone who volunteered to stitch, or just joined up to support us. And thanks also to everyone who visits the blog!
It’s competition time again at the forums. This time, we want people to come up with the logo patch for the quilt – a little square to represent ourselves 😀
As before, the competition is open to everyone, stitching or not, and we invite everyone to participate! There will be a prize up for grabs (although that prize will be a mystery for now) as well as general kudos and props 😀
Moar infos in the Logo Patch Competition thread at the forums.
Don’t forget, you can follow us at our dedicated forum, our Facebook page, or you can subscribe to the blog! And if you have any questions, email us!!

The badge contest ended today and we have a winner! Congratulations to Holder of Anime, whose winning design will be used as our official logo!
Here’s Holder’s badge, “Love to Japan”:
It’s a lovely badge and I think it will represent us well. Great work, Holder! ^^
On to patch news – we have two more complete, including the first Gym Leaders patch!
Well done to blackberrybear and corbin!
Some new pictures also in the WIP gallery – do check them out to see patches progressing 😀

I’m kicking off today’s post by welcoming our newest members: powergirl and Amaya. Amaya has joined up for her mother (who will be doing some stitching), so welcome to her as well! 😀
We have another finished patch! Well done to Anna Marie (amneufeld) on completing Diglett and Dugtrio.
A number of patches are now nearing completion – they will be posted on the PPG forums and here as soon as they are. Please check out the WIP gallery to see how the stitchers are progressing as it is updated regularly 😀

The badge competition is underway and we have a few entries so far. Our prize has been finalized and I’m pleased to announce that the winner will receive a T-shirt with their badge design on it, as well as a forum badge. Voting on entries will begin on April 15th at the forums.
We have started taking ideas for things to put in a scrapbook – which will accompany the finished quilt. There will be photos and all sorts going in – including some very strange advice and some funny quotes from our members 😀
