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..

Students begin the class with a short demo to learn the basic concept of Vikki’s Crazy About Curves technique. Then with a play-as-you-go spirit, students apply the fundamental technique to create improvisational “blocks” of any shape (four-sided, circles, ovals, curvy rectangles or teardrops).
This class covers:
- Basic (limited) and improvisational construction technique concepts
- How to machine sew using the improvisational technique
- Painless mitering
- Splicing seams (using patterns or improvisation)
- How to finish using improvisational techniques and ideas
- Vikki’s whole-cloth finishing techniques
***We are accepting registrations for this workshop on a “first-come” basis.***
Registration begins July 1, 2013 and will continue until the class is full, or until September 14th, whichever comes first. Non-member registrations will be accepted, dated and held until Sept 1, 2013, at which time seats will be filled based on receipt of registration.
Registration ends Sept. 14th, after which time registration fees are non- refundable.
