This year, the Challenge Committee hopes all of our quilters (traditional, modern,
art and everyone between) will participate in our challenge. So……..we are leaving
most of the choices up to you & your imagination. Only two criteria – size and the
inclusion of part or all of the 5” square of pearlized cotton provided. The choice
of fabric was influenced by the 30th anniversary theme of pearls. The pearlized
fabric must be on the front of the piece. If more fabric is needed, you may find
it on the internet Michael Miller Fabrics D#CM0376, Fairy Frost or Quails Nest did
a special order from Timeless Treasures named Shimmer Pearl.
Theme: 30th Pearl Anniversary
Subject: Your choice
Size: 18” square or smaller. The 18” square equals a tota of 72 inches. So you
may take these inches and make a circle, rectangle, etc.
Due Date: Sept. 9th Guild meeting
Label: Not needed for guild presentation but needed at the quilt show.
The quilts will be displayed at the Sept meeting and voted on. Since we will be
voting on our favorite, please bring yours in a bag or disguised somehow. First
place will get $25, second place $15 and third place $10.
No sleeves are needed or required. They will be displayed at the quilt show on a
pin board. A label does need to be applied for the Quilt Show.
Quilt construction: The quilt should be 3 layers – top, batting, backing. You can
use any method and any embellishments. Again no sleeve required or photo needed for
the quilt show.
