2013 Challenge Quilt
As you will remember we did not have enough qualifying submissions to the 2013 Quilt Challenge. The board voted to delay the challenge drawing until the FEBRUARY MEETING. I am re-posting the rules as published in the MAY 2013 newsletter. We are hoping for a better turn out of qualifying quilts.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for our annual Challenge Quilt!
Our theme this year is Ricky, Alex and Libby. Using the influence of
these three great quilters and teachers, create your own quilt using
techniques or fabrics with a Ricky Tims, Alex Anderson or Libby Lehman
Quilts must be at least 30 inches wide and at least 45 inches long to be considered.
These are due and will be shown at our October meeting ( CHANGED TO FEBRUARY 26, 2014.)
One prize will be awarded for the best quilt that fits the theme. Don’t
worry if you didn’t attend the seminar in early May. Ricky, Alex and
Libby’s work and teachings may be found all over the Internet.
REMEMBER there are prizes involved.... GIFT CERTIFICATES...
NEW DEADLINE will be at the FEBRUARY 26, 2014 TH MEETING..
