Quilt Challenge

Barb Gardner: Colorado Sunshine

Each year a challenge is presented for our guild members to produce a quilted piece to show at our annual meeting in April. The theme each year is different. Past challenges featured grunge fabrics, Clue characters, Alice in Wonderland, 2-color selections and John Denver Songs.


“What Makes Me Smile” Challenge 2022

After considering a number of themes suggested by our members, the Board has voted on “What Makes Me Smile” as our 2022 Guild Challenge Theme.

This sounds like a project guaranteed to make you cheerful while you create it.  So, start thinking about what makes you smile (behind those masks) and how you can represent that feeling through fabric.

Our Challenge is not limited to large quilts.  You may choose to create a small wallhanging, table cover, or even a bag or garment.  The only requirement is that it be composed of quilted fabric.  

Challenge quilts will be showcased in our April Show and Tell, which means you have five months to create your work of joy.  We hope that lots of our members choose to share their personal joys with the rest of us during our April 2022 meeting!

Challenge photos are due by the Wednesday before the 2022 April meeting.  Email to website@quakingaspenquiltguild.org
