2011 Quilt Challenge Reveal

In early summer of 2011, the Evening Star Quilters were given a challenge.  The rules were:

  • The quilt had to be a completed (quilted and bound) 25" square quilt including a quilt label.
  • You could only use a total of 2 fabrics ‐ the fat quarter given and an additional fabric of your choosing.
  • You could have it quilted by another quilter if you'd like. You had to give credit on the quilt label for the quilter.
  • You were welcome to embellish the piece. You could use
    ribbons, beads, buttons, decorative threads, etc. Ribbons
    could not be used as a third fabric.
  • You could make your piece using any method of quilting you
    like. Applique, piecing, foundation piecing, fussy cutting,


Everyone participating in the challenge was given  a fat quarter from the same bolt of fabric.




At the December 2011 meeting the quilts were revealed.  They were gorgeous, and everyone deserved to be called a winner!


Guild members voted for their favorite quilts, and the following ladies won Viewer’s Choice:

1st place:  Shirley Miles            2nd place:  Mary Seymour


Great job, everyone!  And what fun we had!

  1. Yours should have been a winner too.. it was ingenuous the way you used gradiated fabric to make your block.

    I did love them all ... so much intricate work ...
