Challenge quilts are a special program held each year. General guidelines are given for the design of quilts to be submitted. The Guild members judge them at one of our Guild meetings, and the winners in a variety of categories win a prize!
The 2019 Challenge was announced at the May 20 meeting and the reveal and voting on submitted quilts will take place at the July 15th meeting. The guidelines are listed below. Here is a printable version!
Crayola Challenge – The 2019
November meeting is a crayola challenge. Choose your favorite crayola color, you may add black, or white or cream to create your masterpiece. A black/white or black/cream fabric would be okay. So basically it is a two color quilt. Perimeter no less than 48” nor larger than 144”. Quilt may be pieced, paper pieced or appliquéd, hand or machine quilted. Must be a complete quilt with top, batting, backing, and binding. When turning in your quilt at the November meeting please put your entry in a plain bag with your name and the crayon you matched your fabric to. Remember there is a monetary prize at stake here.
